820k in first week

at 15:57 - 7th, February 2008

is this a big deal? Japan snatched up 820 000 copies of smash bros. aside from the obvious 'we knew it would happen', i ask 'is it noteworthy?'

it's not revolutionary, so is it just good marketing on nintendo's part?
and i read somewhere that they were having suplly issues with the game, so possible that it might of even sold more.

for some reason kotaku put 30 games up instead of the normal 10.
few things to note:

a)wiifit finally get knocked out of 1st place after 4 weeks

b)3 PS3 games in top 10, does this mean anything?

c) animal crossing wild world is 30th on chart, i just find this funny that it's still there.

Wiifit should have never been 1st. It is not a game!! No matter what stupid mini game crap they put in it will not be considered a game to me.

PS3 is getting it's shit together. Took them this long but it will still be a rocky road for them.

But then again I bring this up. NA now has a larger gaming base. It has for awhile now. Japan in gaming context no longer has the prestige or reason to really give a damn what happens there.

Not to mention if it ain't built there then there is a very good chance they will not like it.

As for AC:WW I was sooo dissapointed with that game. I hope the Wii version is better.
