'Pokémon Platinum' Transforms Into 1.2 Million Copies

Illustration for article titled Pokémon Platinum Transforms Into 1.2 Million Copies

Pokémon Platinum has gone well past platinum now, with another 300K being snapped up by Nintendo DS owners in Japan according to this week's Media Create sales chart. The top spots are dominated by DS software, with new debut Dragon Ball DS settling for second place. The PlayStation 3 version of Eternal Sonata enters the charts with just 34,000 copies sold. Not bad for a year-old Xbox 360 port, but not quite as good as the game's original debut. Hey, hardware bundles help! 01. Pokémon Platinum (DS) - 315,000 / 1,278,000 02.

Does Not Equal

Wii Play, Wii Sports, Mario Kart DS.

Is there some sort of shelf life for those? Do they expire after so long and require replacement? I can't think of another explanation as to why those things are still on that damn list.
