If Nintendo execs assumed Pokemon Diamond & Pearl's
chart-topping popularity would be an indication of Pokemon Battle Revolution's
inevitable success, they were wrong. Despite Japanese shipments of Diamond & Pearl
recently hitting the five-million mark, Battle Revolution
, Wii's first online title, has struggled to make an impact on the sales chart, with only 67,607 copies sold in its first full week of release; by comparison, 69,923 units of Wii Sports
were sold during that same period.
