Is it me, or is it completely weird that NBA is over the Pokemon games? Where the release dates that far apart or is Pokemon going downhill?

I find it more disheartening that Resident Evil 6 is wedged right between them. It may not help that there are two different (yet very similar) Pokemon games.

*shrug* October was very disappointing.

At least Resident Evil 6 reached the 2nd position

I think its a combination of this being the "third version" for this generation of game and the fact that NPD breaks version into their own SKUs. Last I saw BW2 was selling in line with what Platinum did, which is the most similar comparison to draw.

bbb7002004 - I guess that would make sense since one version would sell more than the other. I want to see the numbers a new generation pokemon game would score on the next handheld.

RE6 came out early in the month didn't it? I'm glad to see it sold well though.

Very early. 2nd (or 4th in non-Japanese countries) to be exact.

just because you didn't like Dishonored.
