    All the n00bs will cause the mass chaos on this site asking on where to get this just like they did today with GTA. Sorry, but with the release of GTA: CW this site has took an immediate downfall with thousands of users spamming the GTA:CW release topic. I just hope it doesn't get worse for when Pokemon Platinum is released. What do you think?

    I wouldn't count on it. Platinum won't have piracy checks. The original didn't and I doubt Nintendo would have put here. They should realize that the communities will break it down and fix it.

    However the only spamming that will be done are probably friend codes, matches and trades. Also hacks to the game will form very quickly and might achieve something.

    It won't cause any problems.

    The Japanese version has been out for months and 90% of the emulation issues have been resolved.

    The game plays and saves just fine, but there are still a few glitches with internet stuff on certain cards with certain SD cards.

    its not going to cuz platinum is just slighly diff from pearl/diamond, and will not cause havoc as gta did. also as previously mentioned, the japanese rom as been out for a while, so most if not all problems have already been dealt with.

    There'll probably be a lot of people, but I don't see the Internet imploding anytime soon because of it.
    Shouldn't be anything like the chaos surrounding GTA.

    I highly doubt that because from what I've seen (while lurking). GBAtemp is a pretty mature community minus one or two idiots and a couple of weeaboos but what forum doesn't have that?

    Nintendo has done that in the past, I believe with Phantom Hourglass. The Japanese version would run fine, the US and European ones wouldn't.

    Anyway, this is the third version, so I guess it won't be that bad. Even if they put some kind of piracy protection in it, nobody will care that much and crash GBAtemp [​IMG]

    Agree. And we already have like 4 topics on NDS-Games about GTA ,locked. GTA is causing chaos.

    But I think Pokemon would be less chaotic though after reading all the posts above.

    No one cares about platinum in japanese.
    GTA caused chaos because it was a good game AND didn't work. Platinum won't because it's a good game that will work properly. However it will cause a lot more guests browsing the site [​IMG]

    Yeah, we will definately have some problems with Platinium. Not so bad as it was now, but definately some lagging.

    I don't think as many people are gonna be checking out Pokemon Platinum, as it's not too different from D/P. I mean of course people will play it, but I doubt there'll be a mad rush like with GTA.

    no it won't.
    forgot it has a 1MB save?

    ok, for those who experienced 1MB saves before, and maybe for the few flashcarts with proper 1MB save support it will work fine.
    but most flashcarts don't properly support 1MB saves(m3real is one of those, the only reason it can handle the japanese platinum save is because they made a 1MB"exception" for that game)


    although hopefully with the recent GTA problems most flashcart firmwares will get native 1MBsave support(since this proves 1MB will be more than just a 1-time only emergency savetype)
