So what's the general consensus? All other DS games (FF3, NSMB, ACWW, etc.) resurge on Pokemon's coattails? Or the Pokebomb flattens all, and the charts fall off from 1,000,000 down to 20k?
I believe mario and braintraining 2 will be up from last week.

Im not getting this game.

It's popularity has no effect on me, nor should it on anyone else's. Yet for some reson it appears that whats popular in Japan is the main point of interest for most of you on this board.

Thats cool i guess, but i like thinking for myself (sorry if you find this idea of individuality odd)

Neat hats tho.
How's that working out for you? Thinking for yourself? Hmm? Banned, eh? Jolly good, keep it up!

Well, IMO, Pokémon will effect FFIII, BT1/2, BBA and English Training a little bit, but New Super Mario Bros., Animal Crossing WW, Tetris DS, Mario Kart DS, Tamagotchi, Pokémon Ranger and Mysterious Dungeon will definitely get a boost.

Is there any way that Sony can top this?
Get another "exclusive" GTA game and have the protagonist out forcing her to work the streets.



Hot Coffee mod?

Damn you non-games ... :lol
Pokemans non-game status confirmed ? Only non-games sell on DS, right ?

Is the official title changed to "Pokemans Showing Training : how showy to them are your Pokemans ?"

Heh, likewise.

Man, I hate having to wait. My copy should arrive within the next few days.

Edit: Holy shit at the above. It must be easily at 50k by now.

on Amazon, but seriously i think it's hard to find a copy of D/P in Japan, just take a look at the price for 2nd hand copy... Tengoku for example was sold out for many weeks, and FF3 too, but both games never had 2nd hand price higher than retail price... this means it's sold-out, it reminds me DSL, which was priced over 20.000yen for used copy while retail price is 16.800yen

I think all this is more disturbing than funny. What, they only have a few stores that sell games that there lines going blocks? These people are sick.

That's nuts if it sold 2 million, but the 500k hardware number is even more impressive. We NEED this confirmed
Yeah, 2 million isn't that unbelievable. They sold as many Dragon Quests in that time before. 500k+ hardware in a single day though is pretty nucking futs.

Especially when you think about who they're selling to. You'd think most of the Pokemon crowd would've gotten DSes and Lites when Animal Crossing or Mario Kart or New Super Mario or Final Fantasy came out. I was actually thinking the Pokebomb wouldn't affect hardware sales that much.

I still haven't found out what's so funny about the whole "Pokemans" thing. What's the significance about those cats?? Is "Pokemans" cat speak or what. I want to let someone explain it to me. Please.

As with many other bits of humor, the more you try to break the joke down and explain things, the less funny it gets.

Just read the captions as you look at the cats. If you don't crack up, just move along...

there is some statements about pokemon D/P here but I don't manage to translate

maybe one of you can do it : http://ameblo.jp/sinobi/
very poorly translated but

the number of first shipments with approximately 120 ten thousand, shipped 90 ten thousand at sale 4 day to pass "new スーパーマリオブラザーズ", the highest record in DS software history has been renewed.

it also goes on to say there is another big shipment for the 29th then it will go to normal weekly shipments. Seems it basically says Its on pace to outsell the current DS Sales record of New Super mario Brothers.

seems 1.2 million units were shipped today and 900K tommorrow?
