Default Pokemon Diamond: Best Selling Video Game of the Year!

Pokemon Diamond: Best Selling Video Game of the Year!

Press Release (09/06/07)

Wii and Nintendo DS Sales Fuel Pokemon Momentum
Grown Men and Women Rediscover the Games of their Youth

Pokémon games have always been best-sellers. But the huge popularity of the portable Nintendo DS™ and the Wii™ home video game system has put the Pokémon craze into a whole new category.

Just check out these statistics:
- According to the independent NPD Group, through July Pokémon Diamond is the best-selling video game of the year on any system, while Pokémon Pearl ranks No. 3.
- The newly released Pokémon Battle Revolution already ranks at No. 5 on the list of best-selling Wii games for the year.
- Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl for Nintendo DS have sold more than 3 million copies in the United States alone.
- Pokémon games have helped boost sales of Nintendo hardware. According to the NPD Group, Wii and Nintendo DS were again the two best-selling video game systems in the United States in July.

"These hard numbers show that the Pokémon franchise and Nintendo's systems are striking a chord with players of all ages and drawing in huge numbers of new players year after year," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "But anecdotally we're also seeing that these new Pokémon games are appealing to older players, the same ones who played the original Pokémon games when they debuted in the United States almost 10 years ago."

Grown men and women with kids of their own proudly announce they are training Pokémon and having a blast doing it. Gamer site www.Penny-Arcade.com ran a four-part comic about the artist's Pokémania, while Kristin Brandt of ManicMommies.com posted: "I have become obsessed. I have played for many, many hours (I can't even admit to how many – it's embarrassing)… And I can't seem to stop! There are more Pokémon to capture, more levels to conquer and more badges to earn!"

The Pokémon franchise has sold more than 164 million games worldwide. For more information about Pokémon Battle Revolution, Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, visit www.Pokemon-Games.com. Remember that Wii features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other Wii features, visit Wii.com.

No surprise here. Even before Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl were released, they were expected to be the top selling games.

Yeah, tons of my friends got this game, even though they haven't played Pokemon since Gold and Silver.

It was the fact that online play was introduced that made this generation the most successful.

Hehe...this was almost a given. Hmm...why is it that Diamond is the top selling game, while Pearl was #3? What about Diamond is more appealing than Pearl (I won't answer, considering I have Diamond xP)? And that just raises the question of what's #2?

what is more appealing about Diamond?
1. Awsome Legend on the cover
2. Only able to get that awsome legend in that game
3. Its blue
4. Pearl is pink
5. Palkia looks like a drunk hobo on the 4th of July with big feet.

Most people prefer the Diamond version exclusives like Dialga, and Stunky.

It's always the same
red/blue, red sells more
gold/silver, gold sold more
ruby/saphire, ruby sold more
well you get the picture, the one that is said first sells will sell more earlier on and then the second one will sell more later on when people have completed the other, but the one said first always sells more.

This doesn't surprise me. :P
Well congrats D/P. :D It was a really strong generation - seeing as how it introduced online battles/trades/etc.
I'm sure once more people get a Wii, PBR will be right up there with it.
