Unsurprisingly, the latest Pokemon games are selling like crazy in Japan -- I'm talking seven-digits crazy. According to Media Create, Pokemon SoulSilver sold 722,904 copies, while HeartGold sold 720,086. That's a total of 1,442,990 in just two days! Apparently the economic downturn is no match for Ho-oh and Lugia.
These numbers should be interesting to people who make ignorant comments like, "They still make Pokemon games?" and, "People still care about Pokemon?" Guess what bunky? Yes, Pokemon games are still being made by the excellent people at GameFreak and millions of people care enough to buy them.
Anyone surprised by the sales figures? Do you still doubt that we live in a Pokemon world?
