One more week and Mario Galaxy will have surpassed the sales of Mario Sunshine...

Not a bad second week for FFIV either, plus DQIV breaks the million mark! I really wish Star Ocean would have been brought to DS instead of PSP Smilie

Wii Fit is indeed selling out as soon as new stock comes into Japanese retail...It's going to be a multi-million selling 'game' like Wii Sports, most definitely.

Good to see FFIV holding on and Tales of Innocence isn't doing terribly considering its first batch of stock was only 150,000 copies! So it's gone beyond that now.

Wow Tales of innocence backs to the charts

Super Robot Taisen...damn it where's the orgasm smilie!! Now all I need is a Japanese PS2 and someone who can translate the Japanese for me and I'll be in heaven.
