Hudson must be real happy with Deca Sports.

And wow at We're Fossil Diggers performing at all. I know it's Nintendo published, but it just looks so mediocre.

So next week Mario Kart will outsell Galaxy? Is this the first time MK has outsold a main Mario game?

also the first game that has Luigi on the box that outsells a main Mario game

GBA:
Mario Kart > Super Mario Advance 1-4 (not combined)

GCN:
Mario Kart > Sunshine

N64:
Mario Kart > Mario 64

NDS:
NSMB > *
Mario Kart > Mario 64 DS

The answer is "no." ;)

What ever happened to SMG? I know it's been off the charts for a while.

It's still off the charts. 894K through March 30th and selling << 20K per month.

Those are "NEW BEST PRICE" releases from Capcom. Last week was Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney and Justice for All, and this week will be Trials and Tribulations and Apollo Justice. All priced at 2000 yen I think.

Edit: Beaten.

Umm... actually none of that is true except Mario Kart DS > Mario 64 DS.
 
Fucking ridiculous, I still don't see how NSMB can sell over 4 million and SMG is barley getting to 1 million.

Also :lol at the budget-budget release. Good to see them selling though :D

Poor Star Ocean 2. Guess it was an inevitable fate with Monster Hunter around.

Isn't this about how the first one did?

EDIT: Oh, it's a bit worse. Too bad, but at least it isn't a huge dropoff.
 
PSP continues to dominate on the hardware end. On the software end....not so much. Except Monster Hunter of course. Where would PSP be without Monster Hunter?

Actually, you're wrong. The original Mario Kart also sold something close to 4 million copies.

No, actually you're more right than I was. I thought I had remembered SO1 doing much better out of the gate for raw numbers, but after going to look back, that wasn't the case. Perhaps subconsciously all I remembered was SO1 opening with a six-figure number and SO2 only having a five-figure number.


Edit: Not to mention SO1 looked like a far more substantial remake and had the advantage of being near the holidays. So this isn't too bad at all, I suppose.

Besides the obvious sales prevalence of one platform over another, I honestly think that it has to do with how multiplayer the game is. As phenomenal as SMG's 1P game is, its "Dual-star co-op" is nowhere as ridiculously fun as NSMB's VS. Mode. :D

NSMB:

-Has been out a year and a half longer
-Is on a system with a bigger install base
-Costs less to buy
-Is 2D, which generally makes for tighter platforming (no issues with judging depth, etc.)
-Has a title that blatantly harkens back to the original Super Mario Bros., which to Japan (and everywhere, really) is of legendary stature
-Is a portable title, which means that relatives/spouses/etc. might own one copy each instead of having one disc to a family

And most importantly, of course, NSMB's Fire Flower grants a powerup that lasts until you get hit, rather than that time-limited stuff in SMG. :(

Wii Sports going up should mean a slight surge of Wii hardware.

I am not sure if they apply as directly anymore. I recently saw a shopper buy Wii systems with Deca Sports instead.

Everyone has said Deca Sports is actually very good, so I'm not sure what you mean.

You sure? I just noticed this is weird, but IGN had their review up and it was something real low like 4-6 I think. It's gone now, though, maybe they put it up too early. I was hoping it'd be good though - maybe it still is, I've never liked IGN's reviews anyway, but just throwing that out there.

yea that was the only review id seen of it and they basicly said it was terrible. But maybe they were the only ones that thought it was that bad

Have you played it? It's a lot of fun. It deserves it's sales. Wii Sports got pretty poor reviews too.

It's not a fantastic game but 10 sports (none of which are in Wii Sports) in one package is a great deal.
