    This is probably the most expensive DS game yet. All the big franchise games go for 35 while the rest go 30 and with the walker adding 5 bucks 40 dollars for HGSS I'm glad it's not as expensive as new PS3 and 360 games.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    Don't even joke about that. I'd go crazy and unleash the fury of my Infernape of the retail industry. Just imagine what the games are going to be like next gen when they're on the DS2.

    ...about the same price?

    N64 titles, GameCube titles and now Wii titles all retailed in their day for $50. A new DS title, HG/SS notwithstanding, only costs $5 more than a new GBA title did during that system's time.

    If Nintendo intends to move to an entirely new medium for their handhelds - unlikely, given the advantages that cartridges give you over optical media on a handheld system - they wouldn't do so until they felt they could sell each game at a per-unit cost that was comparable to their established standard.

    Punchline, you're overthinking it and getting worried over nothing.

    I was surprised when the dude at Gamestop told me that it would be $40. I thought, 'are these games really that big that they decided to charge more for them?' But I didn't even think about the PokeWalker until now. *facepalm*
    Oh well, it's not that much more expensive, and I'm sure it's worth it.

    I think it depends on where you do it. I preordered platinum at gamestop and they gave me the giritina figurine when i picked up the game.. they had cases of the game and a large case (might have been two side by side) of the figurines when i picked it up the morning it was released. I'm guessing the exact same thing with gamestop.

    ^They do the same thing at Best Buy. Didn't even know they were giving them out when I got my Giratina o.0

    Is the Pichu event via gamestop going to be wifi like Arceus was?

    The Pikachu-Coloured Pichu being given away at Gamestop. I'm wondering if it will be like the Arceus event at toys r us that came via mystery gift over wifi or if it'll be like the old school events.

    I don't know what other option you might think there'd be or what you mean by "old school" in this context, but given the DS, the local wireless (not Wi-Fi; two different things) is the only way they can do in-store events, as the DS has no link cable ports or any means of physically connecting to another device.

    So... that answers your question... I guess?

    you got lucky then I'm sure your store had some arceus figurines left over from black friday and are giving them to people who come in to preorder.. you'll probaably still get the lugia fig when you pick up the game.

    Australian Release date of HGSS: 25th March.

    Once again, Australia gets something before Europe.

    I'm looking at YOU, Arceus.

    DEVELOPING NEWS STORY: Rumour has it that PCP will be coming to the UK some time soon.

    Again, this is only to be taken with a pinch of salt. Anyway, WHERE'S ARCEUS?

    Most likely after PCP. Europe might get Arceus second, just like it was in Japan. Funny though, I heard rumors that Arceus would be distributed in early 2010 :S

    Anyway, this is great! I want a PCP from every country in the European Union. I bet it'll get released at GAME shops in the UK like Shaymin was.

    Yeah, I hope it is for the DS! That's what threw me off. The new generations have a pattern of appearing on new systems.
