    ...and Nintendo thinks having B/W content would demolish that? Hell no, I'll buy Black too! XD

    Well, considering all the preorders it got, I'm not surprised. People are hyped.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    According to the article, the entire series has now sold more than 140 million copies worldwide.

    Pretty good.

    Can only wonder how many of those were people outside of Japan ordering them.

    And even so, most of those people still get the international copies too! That's helping Nintendo out!

    I'm still debating on dropping the $70 for a game I can't understand any of, other than how to play it :/ +2 for Nintendo when it comes to the States I guess.

    So this must mean I am crazy for still being hesitant on buying these.

    Either that, or I'm misreading something. It does say something about "having sold more than 140 million" of something in the first sentence.

    I'm certainly happy for GenV, but I say that, without the combined efforts of DPPt in dragging in a new generation of players, and HGSS both restarting and reinforcing the old one's interest on Pokemon, BW would have been less than lucky...

    Then again, this is what happened with me, so it might be just my own very personal experience; HGSS brought me back in... and I'm sure I won't miss out on BW now! *waits for English release*

    Ha looks like we can expect a Gen VI, if thats the kind of reception Gen V got! I personally dont understand enough Japanese to warrant buying the Japanese version, but Im certainly getting BW (havnt secided which) when its released in Aus. And Ill probably get the 3rd version too...
