Oh damn. Shrine of Data must've been on the fritz since I think it replaced PM with another N64 game which had sold 426k.

PM2 will outsell the N64 original then.

I could have sworn that, at some point, someone posted higher figures for PM...although I may be wrong. I have a tendency to do that.

They WERE exactly the same, BTW.
Which makes it the only system to not have a drop off from last week.

See? Japan LOVES the Xbox!

Somebody should call Microsoft's PR department and inform them posthaste.

PM2 aint gonna outsell the original..
It will do another 90k without too much problem, although there are no reliable figures for Paper Mario. Iirc, Famitsu has it on about 360k, Dengeki on 420k and Media Create tracked it on about 700k. This goes back to the days when the coverage of the magazines was really poor, and Nintendo games in particular were actually selling much more than Famitsu and Dengeki would track them. I'd suspect that Paper Mario on the N64 sold around 550k or so, when all was said and done. PM2 may just match that...

You're right. Last week, Famitsu had Famicom Mini: Super Mario Brothers 2 at 55,000 when M-Create had it at 100K or so!

So if PM was counted at 700k in MC, and it's currently half that for PM2...
