im not suprised. i thought it would actually be a little more than that, but thats still a huge number. It's going to have great legs



  3DS FC: 4355-9313-6815

cool.



I wonder if Nintendo is lowballing this number like they did with SMG. Nintendo said 500k were sold week 1 when the actual number was 680k



End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

High numbers, not suprised.



I expected big numbers from Brawl



1.4 million may not seem like a lot to some, but it's a big launch for Nintendo...most games simply sell steadily throughout their lifetime. Which this game will as well I'm sure...meaning it well sell a LOT by the end of its life. It's not like Halo 3 that sells 4 million and dies within a year.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )
