I like Battle Stadium for GCN selling so well *dances around*
It shows, that GCN is not dead! Wonderful! Keep up, third-party-Nintendo-GCN-Games!

I don't know Bleech3, but I saw LocoRoco as PSP-saviour, too. Shame, with being a wonderful game. But PSP has too little games lice LR out there... It would sell marvelous on DS, I think...

/edit: checked all the typos I did. Shame!
And DS selling 235000? That's an awful heck! holy cow!

Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

You're German, aren't you?

Yes, Dojo99. Why? How can you tell?
Honestly, I only was half asleep then typing that, I swear! ;-P

wow i'm just amazed that it managed another 100,000 on top of the usual 150,000. so does that mean that it sold as normal in its regular colours and then sold 100,000 in pink.

well you gotta give nintendo some credit. they have dominated the japanese top ten for so long now and the fact that mario is stil selling in such large quantities is strange. it's nice to see cooking mama doing well as i'd like it in the uk, as i do enjoy to cook and it beats following jamie oliver's books.

so when is the next big game out in japan?

Man the DS sold 262,000!!!

It is crazy to think that another 5million games sold let face it Mario, AC, BT's selling lots stillll along with new DSlite colurs, FF3, FFCC, DQJ, Pro Evo, DOnkey Kong, more mario, more brain training and pokemon the DS will have sold more software than the GBA. Also good to see that the Cube still sells reasonable amount of software each week considering it hits 1k each week.

DS Lite is just owning the Japanese market in both software and hardware sales.......! It's just going from strength to strength with no signs of slowing down. (262,000....is that over 5 days??? Either way) We're witnessing a DS Phenomenom. Nintendo's long term strategy concerning their software is stating to make senseSmilie:cooldude:

My goodness, when will it ever end? Smilie

I am just waiting for AC to reach 3 million Smilie

101k for the DS to reach 10million
2k for the GameCube to reach 4m

is anyone else thinking that in the ds's future their should be a players choice range?

then they'd sell even more. i know it wont happen they never do which handhelds.

there is a BEST PRICE range but all i know is that Pheonix Wright is on it but i am sure that mario 64 and wario ware are as well by now


oh god no xbox sold this week oh god SmilieSmilieSmilieSmilieSmilieSmilie made my day fuck i bet you the dreamcast sold more this week

Both Konami and Capcom seem to have their own budget range on the DS and GBA, just like Square Enix has so far had its own PSone and PS2 budget line-up, only recently stretching it over to the GBA (and I assume the DS in the future).

Nintendo's GBA Player's Choice bombed, other than Mother 1+2 because it was spurred on by Mother 3's release.

Having zero Xbox systems on the chart is a complete joke. Media Create ditched the N64 and WonderSwan long before they reached zero...is it just trying to mock Microsoft or something?! Smilie
