    Pokémon Black and White isn’t even out yet, but it’s a hot seller. The next entry in the Pokémon series already passed the 1,000,000 pre-orders mark in Japan. According to games website Online Player EX, Pokémon Black and White broke the record for fastest selling Pokémon game in the region.

    Pokémon Black and White comes out on September 19 in Japan. Nintendo has the game slated for spring 2011 in North America and Europe.[/p]

    Impressive to be honest.

    Every Pokemon game breaks some record over the previous one pretty much. People still love to play Pokemon.

    I'm not surprised.

    As much as I hate the repeated formula, I'm at least glad that Nintendo is trying to make these ones more refreshing. I really hope someday that they'll make the Pokemon League challenge a side-quest and focus on something else as the main story.

    This. Only, I am quite surprised Pokemon still hasn't died out after 14 years. Some of the Pokemon just look so uncreative and terrible, I wonder why so many people pre-order it.

    With these kind I sells I wonder why they aren't churning them out faster(can't have too much money [​IMG] ).
