    While great sales for AC games are to be expected, the digital sales are pretty damn surprising.

    I'm not surprised at all considering that game was MADE to be digital imo.

    The folks at Nintendo are celebrating hard, they've become real party animals.

    When Animal Crossing New Leaf becomes available in the UK, you can bet it's the download version I'll be getting for the convenience of having it on my system at all times.
    The game is perfect for that, it can be your total focus or a little diversion whilst you focus on other titles.

    What kind of animal gets a thrill from crossing pun fans? Might I suggest you turn over a new leaf.

    On a serious note, how impressive is this really? For Japan I mean, is this like average, a lot, record-shattering, or what?

    Well, it's almost a million in the first week. Sounds impressive to me.

    It's because it's full of win.
    I can't wait for this game to be released in the UK..hopefully early 2013.
