    Unsurprisingly NSMB Wii is on tops since Nintendo loves pushing it's advert campaign up the hoo-hah of anyone. Red Dead Redemption is the big success story here... Not saying it would sell badly but it's been rocketing through sales.

    Shame about Mass Effect 2 though, that game was great. I still bought my copy though and I'm proud of it. Yet again it does get a lot of sales through DLC (and pretty much all DLC it has gotten so far has gotten raving reviews).

    I wonder why Soul Silver did so much better than Heart Gold. [​IMG]

    Because Heart sounds lame whereas Soul doesn't.
    "Heart", it sounds like it's stuck in the 90s.

    How does just dance even work?

    It appears to register whole body movement with just a wiimote [​IMG]

    Red Dead Redemption sold a lot more than I thought. I also expected Super Mario Galaxy 2 a little higher, even though it just came out.

    Let's hope these Red Dead Redemption sales convince them to release it on PC!
    I want that game so badly....

    smg2 hasn't been out very long, yet it still made it to the top 10

    i'm not surprised at all actually

    i'm also really hoping they port RDR to PC 8D

    Where is this from? North America, Japan, or a total of everything (Europe as well)?

    Tried it. It's weirdly fun... I think this is a hit because of the "broken movement detection". To me it looks broken as I had to do the exact poses and just mindlessly wagglin the Wiimote doesn't do it. That's why it's clunky, but it's so clunky that most people think it does detect your movements accurately >_>

    I can't wait for Kinect Dance Central and see how well that will perform [​IMG]
