1 Million Pokemon

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo share-holders rejoice as the latest hot Pokemon property, Diamond and Pearl fly off the shelf's selling 1 million copies in just 5 days.

"Within just five days of availability, more than 1 million copies of Pokémon® Diamond and Pokémon Pearl for the portable Nintendo DS™ have sold in the United States since Sunday's launch; a faster rate than any previous Pokémon games since the franchise's U.S. introduction, almost a decade ago. To date, more than 155 million copies of Pokémon games have sold worldwide."

Personally, I don't get Pokemon, I've never really understood the big attraction too it. The evidence shows that I must be in the minority, Pokemon's sales figures are very impressive.

"Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl are poised to become two of the top-selling games of 2007 in the United States. More than one half million people pre-ordered the games before launch. Additionally, thousands of people attended the kickoff launch event in New York, and demand for the games continues to be off the charts. These latest versions of Pokémon games were introduced in Japan on Sept. 28, 2006, and have already been purchased by more than 5 million video gamers there."

We'll hopefully be seeing a full review of one edition of the game this week.
