Very happy to read this. The mall tours and Gamestop giveaways helped a lot I bet.

I wouldn't be so sure about that...The 6th Gen Pokemon games will inevitably be made for the 3DS and I don't see the sales of 3DS surprising the DS's.

That's still about 4 years away so we'll see..

Pretty much the same here.

I hope the game reviews are as positive as the sales.

Repeated success like Japan's launch day? Is that unusual?

Really? Does anyone have the overall stats, including Europe at least? It's kind of cool thinking of it in perspective, knowing that each of a good number of us here bought at least one copy to make up such a huge number.

The sales are tremendous! It really puts me at ease that Pokemon is still a very successful franchise, despite what the naysayers want happen.

Thanks for reading.

Re: 1.08 million copies of Black and White sold on U.S. launch day: New record for Po

If you think this was big, a few months ago, Black Ops sold 5.6 million on the first day.
The game is also available over a number of platforms, which helps sales numbers. Not to mention that there are probably more home consoles here in the US than there are handhelds, meaning that there's a larger base to sell to.

I admit that I'm surprised. Not only did this game break the previous first day sales, but it shattered it. Just goes to show that the franchise is still popular.

People still play Pokémon? Losers...

But seriously, it was kind of expected. These games had the most hype and in my opinion, surpassed the expectations.
