    Pokemon, an incredibly popular franchise, remains incredibly popular.

    In other news, there was a sunrise this morning.

    Crazy. Pokemon is big as ever. I expect a 5M+ opening worldwide. I would put 10M down, but the install base isn't as crazy as DS. We'll see. But Pokemon fans do come in large numbers, so quite a few more 3DS's can be sold.

    Will this be the first games of a new gen to outsell Diamond and Pearl?
    I would love to see what happens.

    Wait... Black and White didn't out sell Diamond and Pearl?

    And the 3DS is about to see a decent sales bump off this game.

    No, I'm pretty sure Diamond and Pearl is still the best selling Pokemon games (On the DS) with Black and White following behind closely.

    Diamond and Pearl?
    The games so bad they had to change like everything in Platinum?

    Lol maybe coz they were the 1st DS pokemon games. Thats why they're so well selling

    Hopefully we get something like this in the USA. When it comes to limited edition 3ds the USA does not get many.

    Sad to see a potentially neat looking 3DS ruined by putting it on that massive canvas.

    Kinda like the Fire Emblem 3DS vs the hideous EU FE 3DSXL. So ugly. So bad.

    Because blue is a peaceful color. The black design almost looks like a cherry tree print; its color has just been reversed. So, instead of a white tree design on a pink background, you have a black tree design on a blue background. And a deep royal blue design at that.

    (I need to convince myself to start playing Okami again)

    I dunno about this title... unless all Japanese sales are through Amazon's Japanese branch, I think the title is misleading. It takes some specific market and exaggerates it to concern all Japan.

    Personally I thought emigre had multiple personalities and was just informing us of the one he* was set to be using.

    *now I have said it I have to wonder about the applicability of gender terms as it pertains to those with multiple personalities.

    Did plastics manufacture, vinyl companies and laser engravers pop of out existence when I was not looking?
