#1 on the charts 4 months after release. Ridiculous.
Seriously. I'm sure this sort of thing happened back in the day of the NES and SNES, but there's definitely been nothing even remotely like this in who knows how long. Really incredible.

Could Animal Crossing finally be losing steam?

Famitsu's numbers for the game had it at 100K last week, versus 80K for Media Create. Media Create's LTD is no longer reliable for AC.

1 = BT2
4 = BT
6 = English

I think cvxfreak should start using English translations (or use duckroll's) from now on. :)

Because almost everyone who is buying a new DS is picking up a Brain Training game with it. I know I sure did :D

I'm going to predict roughly flat for 360. I'm an optimist.

So... Contact didn't get some huge momentum and jump into the top 10 eh....

I guess the shortages are still in effect.

Man I wish Nintendo would release NSMB. If "non-games" kill it's sales, then Nintendo fans will finally be pissed too.

fallacious statement there. non-games could not kill sales. If anything, they would help them by having na expanded user-base and better consumer awareness of the DS hardware.

Non-game sales = NSMB selling >7 million and FF3 Remake selling >2 million (it's a remake so this may be an overstatement.

Maybe the 3 people who bought it last week each told three friends... If that keeps up, it'll reach a million!

As proven with Mario Kart DS. Easily the top selling Mario Kart in the franchise's history.

I thought Mario Kart 64 has sold better.

As has been said before, DS titles act as though it's their first week of release every week. It's insane.

I wouldn't. If the new outsells the old-school, that's just par for the course; I'm used to it by now. After Ocarina of Time outsold A Link to the Past, FFVII outsold the likes of FFVI and Chrono Trigger, and GTA outsells all but two or three franchises, nothing much can disturb me anymore.

Yeah, but it outsold Mario Kart Advance and Double Dash, and who knows, MKDS may have longer legs than we anticipated and reach 2 Million... there's no denying anything on the DS anymore.

N64 version was the best selling game on the system. It sold like 2m alone.

I'm sure that last week or the week before, we conclude that non-games aren't taking any anything away from 'games'. Once you remove Brain Training etc from the chart, 'game' sales are the same as last year.

I thought the original SNES Mario Kart was an absolute monster? Online sources have it at over 3.8 mil in Japan.

The week of the 20th should see a big change in the charts. Also starfy 4 came out today so that will probably show up on next week charts.

What big games come out the 20th? Does Mother 3 have a chance of making the top 10?
