If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

lol LBX Baku Boost is so fucked. Kids will still be buying Pokemon when that comes out.
It would. E screwed even without any other release, since it's the second re-packaging of the same game in less than 18 months.

@B/W2 Sales
Not bad I guess ;-)
But I expected a + 2 million opening. Though this release should be pure profit for them.

I doubt it's gonna have the legs of Diamond/Pearl or even Black/White, but still super impressive.

Well yeah, I said that on the last page. It's part of the reason it's why I have no clue what Level-5 is doing. Baku Boost shouldn't be released in Japan, and LBX W shouldn't be PSP/Vita but PSP/3DS.

Looking through JPSN just confuses me. That Ciel No Surge game has like 1.5k ratings, and I swear I saw that New Little King's Story actually had more than Gundam.
That's because they've been out longer and had low retail shipments. Also, didn't NLKS have a sale on PSN recently? Can't remember.

BW2 had a pretty awesome two days for a sequel. Is this the best opening of the year so far?

Alright, i'm going to take a crazy guess here, but I predict Pokemon B/W 2 will be the best selling game of next week...

Good guess but no. Clearly these are all people who went out to buy Tokyo Jungle and decided to get another "animal based game" to go along with it, but because some people couldn't buy both more of them clearly picked up TJ.

Man, the Sillky Terrier and Saber Tiger must've really helped. Truly, not even Pokemon can stop the mighty Saber Tiger.

I don't think Digimon World Re: Digitize will sell well. I'm sorry bro.

Eh, I know its fate.

And I sorta hate it for not including Xros Wars stuff. Adds ammo to the haters. Fuck them.

And one of my favorite characters in Kamen Rider Fourze loves Pokemon and bought BW2 :)

In Prof. Kawashima I Trust!

There's also Dragon Quest X though, I expect that to do pretty good.
Pokemon will most probably reach 4m; DQ 9 wasn't MMO and didn't reach 5m.

If DQX even passes 2 days sales of Pokemon, that is even over 1.5m, it'll be a crazy success for SE.

It's a shame because Re:Digitize looks cool, but recent Digimon games haven't exactly been best sellers. They also haven't been localized. : /

Hey Capcom...

Monster Hunter x Pokemon

Thank me later^^

Since Nintendo are so chummy with Tecmo Koei where's that Pokemonster Rancher game.

Hmm with such a drop in sales compared to B&W 1 (and sequels usually being more front loaded) I think they wouldn't lose much if they went for 3DS exclusively.

They will be with the RSE remakes. They'll probably be testing their 3DS engine with them, and we'll see the first Gen VI games later on.
