    Well done to 2D Boy! Nice to see it do well on WiiWare even thought a massive amount of people pirated it on the PC, I hope they got a good cut out of the "estimated" number.

    As for Nintendo if those numbers are correct, then they have got $18,300,000 in the West alone from selling old roms with an emulator which I really doubt takes much effort to put onto the VC service.

    Really glad to see this growth in WiiWare sales. VC I don't care about , but there are some epic games in WiiWare and it's just a really good idea to sell those small/addicting games that don't have enough content for a full retail price.

    I'm glad that World of Goo sells so well. It's a really good game! I already own it on PC (legit, thanks to the pay whatever you like thing) but otherwhise I'd get it for Wii.

    thts really amazing and may encourage them to increase tht number though now it would be more difficult as the older greater titles have been exhausted
