I would love to draw some "SEE!? SEE!? I WAS RIGHT ABOUT FIFTH GEN!" conclusions from those data, but unfortunately we all know that these are sales to date figures and therefore it's unrealistic to expect B/W sales to trump D/P sales. Plus we already know from Lindz's reporting at launch that B/W's 1st day and 1st week sales already blew D/P's out of the water. =\ So give the games four more years, I guess, before we can really draw any conclusions about whether Gen 5 was a disappointment in the eyes of the international community or not.

I will say, though, that I am quite pleased to see that HGSS has sold so well relative to B/W. Even if it enjoyed a year head start, HGSS was still a remake that fell in between main generation releases and even followed in the wake of Pokemon Platinum. So for it to have sold this well relative to B/W shows either one of two things: how solid HGSS were as games or else how not solid B/W were.

Your news source makes me cry though in this article from 2009. HGSS the "seventh generation" of Pokémon? >_> Seriously? Get that imposter Pokémon expert OUTTA HERE!

Exceptional sales for B/W considering its still a month and a half away from its 1st anniversary.

Per this past weeks Media Create chart:

Quote:
15./15. [NDS] Pokemon Black / White | RPG | (Pokemon Co.) {2010.09.18} | Ľ4.800 | - 9.769 / 5.259.203 (-12%)
That leaves over 6,251,000 copies of the games sold outside of Japan after roughly 4 months. Through April B/W was at 2.8 million+ in the US as mentioned by NOA PR here back in May.

I'd say its safe to say in terms of B/W sales that JP > US > EU. But that's comparing 4 months to 10 1/2. They'll surely get another big boost in the west come the holiday season. Reaching the heights of D/P will still take time however~

Fairly sure the report is based on main titles.
