Seems strange that they would launch so close to the 3DS coming out. I'm sure it won't matter, since the 3DS plays DS games, but I still find it interesting. Then again, it didn't seem to cause a problem when they released Twilight Princess right next to the Wii launch. But honestly, I think the 3DS release date will probably fall pretty close to Pokemon B/W. I don't see them releasing it in, say, January, or anything. But that should be obvious; they would've announced it by now if they were releasing anytime soon.

Well, it's a Pokémon game after all. It will fly off the shelves even with the 3DS so close to its release. I'm more worried about Okamiden which comes in the middle of March.

About B/W, I hope that they won't make the inevitable Pokémon Grey follow-up for the 3DS too soon because I'm planning to play B/W for a long time and don't want a new version with some extras a year later. They should build a new Pokémon game from ground up for the 3DS instead of just enhancing B/W. Imagine battles like on the console games that we've wanted for so long. It would blow people away.

Gold/Silver launched just before the GBA and did fine as well. There's no real problem in launching a game for an old system just before a new one launches, as long as
a) The new system is backwards compatible (which it is).
b) the old system hasn't been killed off yet (which it hasn't).

Way to go Fire Pig!

Plus, we're forgetting that this is POKEMON. Smilie
