Default Pokemon Diamond/Pearl: 1 Million Sold in Five Days!

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl: 1 Million Sold in Five Days!
-04/27/07-


Press Release (April 26, 2007)

Pokémon Hotter Than Ever
One of the video game industry's most celebrated franchises is officially hotter than ever. Within just five days of availability, more than 1 million copies of Pokémon® Diamond and Pokémon Pearl for the portable Nintendo DS™ have sold in the United States since Sunday's launch; a faster rate than any previous Pokémon games since the franchise's U.S. introduction, almost a decade ago. To date, more than 155 million copies of Pokémon games have sold worldwide.

Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl are poised to become two of the top-selling games of 2007 in the United States. More than one half million people pre-ordered the games before launch. Additionally, thousands of people attended the kickoff launch event in New York, and demand for the games continues to be off the charts. These latest versions of Pokémon games were introduced in Japan on Sept. 28, 2006, and have already been purchased by more than 5 million video gamers there.

The two games include a number of features that make them particularly attractive to gamers, including:
* More than 100 new Pokémon.
* A 3-D look that makes Pokémon jump off the screen.
* Worldwide wireless battling and trading using Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection.
* Voice chat functions that let players talk wirelessly with their friends.

Later this year, these two titles will also help expand the Pokémon universe for the first time to Wii™, Nintendo's new home video game system. Diamond and Pearl owners will be able to use their DS hardware units as controllers for Pokémon Battle Revolution (launching June 25), the first Pokémon game available for Wii. Players also will be able to export characters to the Wii game.

For more information about Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, visit www.Pokemon-Games.com.

Keke. I already read the story on Nintendo.com. XP

It's amazing, though. Actually... it isn't. This was OVERANTICIPATED.

I don't think PBR will be as popular. Pokemon handheld RPGs have always been more popular, probably because home consoles are more expensive. But I could be wrong, as PBR is obviously superior to DP, or any handheld game for that matter.
