I still think it's deceptive. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are the same game save one or two differences. Why not list them together? Combined, it looks like they'll have hit 3 million units by the time I write this post. By my count, that's just over 5 weeks. How does that compare to other big games? Other Pokemon games?

Any word on what was number 11?

Wow Kirby is doing much better than expected.

Winning Eleven DS... anyone got any impressions on that? I am highly interested, but skeptical at the same time.
I had written some impression a week ago.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=4714555&postcount=57

More to add on WFC:
- DON'T expect too much. Its setup is like Mario Kart DS. No chat nor special online features.
- You can choose to play with friends (friend code of course), worldwide or rival (players with similar stat).
- There is NO penalty for any disconnection during online match...
- Online gameplay runs smoothly, at least for friend's matches.

Last impression:
Still not a up-to-standard Winning Eleven title. But if Konami puts more efforts to provide a smooth and better 3D engine, it could be a decent title.

Wow, from the Famitsu numbers I thought TotT was at least in the top 10. Guess it's dying already.

Namco got what they deserved. A crap, halfassed, outsourced effort that didn't even get advertised properly. Yet watch them blame the DS for their shit sales as an excuse to make more crap effort on the DS. -_____-

Interesting fight for No.1 spot on NDS SW LTD :lol

Brain Age 2 should surpass Animal Crossing next week.
New Super Mario Bro. will become No.1 before Dec;
before Pokeman destroys everything in 1-2 weeks

Is it good enough for a portable DS sports game? I do like football games, so I'm interested in it.

Is the Japanese overwhelming in it for English speakers?
I think WEDS is still better than FIFA DS besides 3D engine.
The control gets 70% of the feel on PS2 titles.

Just if you care about playing clubs, you will be disappointed since only several teams are in the game.

Can someone post an updated pokemon chart (The one with a graphic of all games)

I wonder if Diamond/Pearl can ultimately claw its way to the very top.

I don't, really. I don't follow football at all, I just like the games.

I'll probably look in to the English version. I'm not exactly desperate to find a game right now; I have far too many to get through.

So, here’s a little something I whipped up because I have nothing better to do with my time (except play videogames, but this is GAF, we don’t play games, we only whine about them):

A Short History of the NDS in Japan (as told through pictures):

NDS Launch: (2/12/2004)


Post-Launch Stagnation:(10/1/2005-21/3/2005)


Easter: (27/3/2005- Who knows)


Advent of Nintendogs: (21/4/2005)


Dr. Kawashima’s Debut: (5/19/2005)


Tom Nook Sets Up Shop: (23/11/2005)


Largest Ever Non-Launch Week Sales for Any System in Japan: (19/12/2005-25/12/2005)


Children of Mana Triples Launch Week Sales Over Lifetime: (2/3/2006-9/11/2006)


Longest Ever Consecutive Sales Over 100K per Week: (27/2/2006- 14/7/2006)


Outselling Everything Else Combined becomes a Weekly Affair (27/2/2006-Present Day)


10 Straight Months of Hardware Shortages: (1/1/2006-31/10/2006)


The Return of the King: (15/5/2006)


Final Fantasy III’s weighs in: (24/8/2006)



Pokebomb Hits Japan: (28/9/2006)


In Conclusion:


“If the DS succeeds, we will rise to heaven, but if it fails, we will sink to hell.”
