I'm impressed with Mother, definitely! Also great to see Okami up there, I'm really anticipating that one.

I'm now wondering if Contact will ever make it here. Smilie

By the way, what's the difference between English training and USA training?

Contact is already confirmed to be coming over here if I'm not mistaken. Smilie

I know Mason, but with the sluggish sales in Japan, I'm.....AFRAIIIIIIID!Smilie

Wao! Great news for Mother 3, hopefully it'll keep going up... and up... and up!

It was always going to sell perfectly well, I think when it comes to austalia I will definetly invest in a copy.
Booyah, Mother

"Study this revelation, you nest of adders!"

Has ne one else noticed that the 360 exclusive 99 Nights has made number 11? Quite good sales for a console that isn't selling at its best in that region.

I'm still finding it really refreshing to see the Brain Trainning/Learning games in the top 10. ACWW is still holding in there well too.

What I find impressive is Mario Karts consistency! It has been in the top 15-18 its entire life span I think. Pretty good.

Also, it looks like both Brain Training 1 and 2 will crack two million next week. Smilie

Another note is Animal Crossing cracking the half way mark for another million.

amazing legs for nintendo games Smilie

WOW Mother done better then Dragon Quest, surprised and happy!!! yippeyi!!! 5 new games on the chart this week! 6 nintendo games on the top 10!! thats really good!!!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Both Brain Training and Brain Training 2 look like cracking 2 million in Japan next week, incredable stuff indeed!

Stock shortages for the normal DS it would seem...

Seems like Nintendo actually *STOPPED* shipments for old DS model, that's why it dropped suddenly while DSL went up reaching his sales record 7 weeks after its release. From now on Nintendo should be able to keep high DSL production

Oh me lord i dont like the position of the Orginal DS. I think Ninty should still produce these! They have prooven to still be popular!

NNN didn't exactly give the 360 the boost that people thought it might, they need to listen to me more often Smilie

Micro and the SP certainly got a nice boost.

Great sales for Nintendo. Impressive feats by Mario Kart and Animal Crossing is still finding its rightful place!

Insult and injury being two words that spring to mind :p

7million DS's sold vs 3million PSP's sold this year.

Nice.
Especialy as the trend towards an even higher gap is happened in the last month.

Last update; Mice,Plumbers,Animatronics and Airbenders. We also have the socials; Facebook & G+

The micro was ALWAYS going to get a boost because of the special Mother 3 box set that includes a special themed GB micro...Shame we never get anything special for the micro Smilie

There's still rumours that with FFIV we'll see a special faceplate, but I'm not holding my breath.
