LogoThe latest Pocket Monsters game was released in Japan on September 13th, and according to Famitsu's website, it sold 967,675 copies the first two days it was on sale. Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl had a combined sales of 1.58 million units during their debut week of September 28 through October 1, 2006. It will be interesting to see if Platinum will be able to top Dimaond and Pearl's first week record which Diamond sold 813,237 units, while Pearl moved an impressive 762,029 copies.

Dengeki has also confirmed that the game easily passed the million mark on the third day it was on sale, bringing the Nintendo DS list of million sellers in Japan to twenty-six titles.

According to IGN, "Pokemon itself announced the sales feat, citing figures from independent sales tracking firm Media Create. Full Media Create numbers for all software and hardware over the week will be released later this week." Famitsu's numbers were provided by it's parent company Enterbrain.
