    Awesome news! Nintendo probably has made profit on this game already. They still lose a shitload of money thanks to piracy, but if they keep earning them like this, I doubt they'll be that sad [​IMG]

    And according to VGChartz.com, Platinum sold around 6 million copies.

    Good to hear. They'll probably still complain about all the piracy though.

    Thanks for the site. According to it pokemon platinum had 992,995 sales after its first week in Japan. So these have already sold better.

    I can't believe it. Seriously all I can see is nintendo laughing all the way to the bank on these two titles. I can just imagine them in the pokemon board room saying stuff like "Guess what!", "What?", " I've got this idea!", "ohhh?", "We are going to resell a game from 5 years ago and try and convince the average Joe that they need to buy or they will die.", "Isn't Square-Enix already taking that line?", "Shut up! We are going to do it with pokemon though.", "Wow! Who would have thought we'd do that? Imagine how much cash we'll make!"

    Blah! makes me glad I'm going to pirate these two game, play them to the first point I can save and never touch them again.

    nintendo loves giving us the wicked smile with game sales!

    as far as i know some fans actually bought both gold and silver
    it sure is a good tactic to use for boosting the sales [​IMG]

    Well this doesn't surprise me, with all the hype they generated for the two games.
