Well, this is all not only because it's a great title, but also because of the fantastic reviews it's received. I can't exactly say that I'm surprised, but I can't say that I was fully expecting this either. We'll just say that this is great and leave it there.

I got it and it is incredible, at the start it is easy but then it gets very tough. Don't expect an easy short game.

Well of course it did, it has Mario on a whole new adventure. Why wouldn't it be a success?

It's selling very well, but to see glitch fest generic trash like assasin's creed selling well completely defeats the idea of gaming being better, same old generic bug fest games with long load times and outdated gameplay being consumed by x360 and ps3 fanboys. "forgive them lord they know not what they do". A gamer buys galaxy, a sony brainwashed teen buys assasin's creed. Sorry sony fans that's just fact.

Wow, best selling Mario game ever, after a week. Or would that be a "wiik?".

I knew this would sell well, but this is better than I expected. I guess this is what happens when the Nintendo system is on top and the game is getting perfect or almost perfect reviews.

Now compare this with sales from Halo 3, The Orange Box, and, what was the other one, Metroid Prime?
