Default Long Lines for Pokemon Diamond/Pearl Release!

Long Lines for Pokemon Diamond/Pearl Release!
-09/28/06-


Long lines formed at stores throughout Japan for the release of Pokemon Diamond/Pearl. In one of those stores, the Japanese gaming site Famitsu reported that over 150 people waited in line to buy Pokemon Diamond/Pearl. Even more people were at the Pokemon Center store, where over 800 people were in line. A sign was displayed that the waiting time in line can be over 5 hours long. The Diamond/Pearl themed DS Lite is being sold exclusively at the Pokemon Center store, so many people have bought that as well along with Pokemon Diamond/Pearl.

Famitsu has more pictures in their pages, you can check them out here:

- http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/200...60943,0,0.html
- http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/200...60944,0,0.html

Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl are scheduled to be released in the US in Spring 2007.

And I love the people who still think Pokemon is a dead fad...

But... five hours though? Man, that's just crazy.

Dang... Five hour wait? Man, I hope it's not that bad over here, but then again Pokemon is "for little kids". I'll skip my classes just to get it if I have to, but luckily most (older) people are embarrassed to admit they like Pokemon and will probably pre-order or get it late at night. I'm not at all embarrassed to admit I'm 18 and still like Pokemon!! (It was my first anime, after all.)

DUDE! That DS for Diamond/Pearl is so freaking kick ass looking! I would love to have that instead of the crummy blue one I have. lol

*whispers to DS, you're not crummy. Just blue*

Nope, the Japanese version of the game is in Japanese only.

When it hits the US, I'm sure they'll be sold out quickly too, but I don't see long lines forming waiting for the store to open.

lol, I pity those who waited in line. A local store here imported a couple of Pokemon DS Lites and I've already reserved a copy. Costs a little more than the retail price in Japan, but I'll take what I can get.

I can't wait.

Yeah, reserving copy of something is good, especially if when you reserve it, you get something special, like a carrying case or a demo game. I reserved a copy of Emerald at Wal*Mart one time, and was suppose to get a carrying case or something, but f**king Wal*Mart sucks and everyone who works there was retarded when I asked them about it. They screwed me over.

Wow, that makes me have deja vu. Something like the 360. I'm going to reserve both copies with my Black DS Lite.

Both Diamond and Pearl ... and the new Black DS?! Wow... you're lucky. :) I'm only getting Diamond when it comes out... -.- I only want Diamond anyway, but you need both to complete the Pokedex. Oh, well...
