    Let's see... a shitty game once every 2 days in 3+ regions would be about 3 games a day, plus 1 good game a month, so I think so.

    Oooh, it'll be tough. That's another 771 releases. That requires like a few releases every day, so I'm gonna have to say no.

    Definately. I bought my first flashcart a bit more than 1 year ago. Back then, the newest release was #800. As I'm writing this the newest release is #2229. So in another 9 months, we'll probably reach #3000, seeing as the DS-games keep coming.

    Well we've 331 releases in the first quarter of the year and its always "slow" in the first quarter though to me 331 is a fucking lot.

    Of course there'll be a very slow period and then October to December it'll be crazy with releases. Then we've also got the Korean scene to think about, which is fairly new, I'm sure there's many games released there that have yet been dumped.

    So I reckon it'll pass 3000 with no problems at all. Hell I reckon 3500 isn't so far off.

    3,000 is an easy target ... yeah, there's still the summer games drought to come, but it's not Summer yet ... and there are releases most days.

    Plus, when you get near Christmas, you'll have days where there are maybe 15 or 20 releases in a single day.

    Probably #2700

    To reach 3000th rom this year, i find it abit far fetched..

    A conservative guess-timate will be say #2800?

    I first thought tough luck.
    That's ~750 more releases in the coming months, but if I trace back 750 releases to #~1500, those aren't too long ago.

    I bought my DS in March 2007, and I think there were about 900 releases. (I'm quite certain because I got my pre-ordered Taiko no Tatsujin in August and its rel no. is #1235)

    July 24th 2007 : #1235, April 14th 2008 : #2230

    In 8 months and half, there's been 1000 releases. We have 7 and half months till the end of 2008, so I think 750 more releases seem possible.

    with the amount of shovelware and non gaming games that are released on the DS, yes it's very possible.

    Maybe, if all the stupid games come out too. Lately, games are looking good not only on DS, but consoles and stuff too. I'd say bout 2750 ish by the end of this year.

    Yes! Cause all we'll need is a few more Bratz games and we'll hit 3000 in no timeeeee.
