    500,000 Copies Sold on 1st Day!

    Great job SSBB!



    Wow, we guess all of those Dojo Dumps weren't for nothing. As expected, people really are buying Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Other than that one copy that went to Ash, 499,999 discs have sold in Japan. That's roughly 80% of the total stock on store shelves. We're guessing that means SSBB will be sold out everywhere in Japan by the weekend, if not already.

    Meanwhile, Wii Family Ski sold a modest 10,000 copies.

    But think about how it will be over here in America. If only 80% was sold in Japan, than 100% would be sold over here.

    I just believe that if it sold well in Japan, than it will hopefully sell better here in America.

    Halo also had a single day worldwide release right? Let's see what happens when you add the first day in Japan with the first day in America, and you'll see what would have happened if they'd shipped at the same time.

    Not only that, but the Japanese are a very.... odd.... videogame demographic. It's hard to predict what they'll like en mass. That's why SMG didn't seel that well (relatively speaking) there. Everybody identifies themselves with a super-small niche market, and very few games really bridge all of those niches.

    Brawl is one of those few, but it still suffers from niche-ism. The Wii-play/sports titles also bridge those niche gaps. Japan is a strange place, really.

    I'm a rather intelligent individual who has the bad habit of doing rather unintelligent things...

    This is incredibly good news. Japan is a much smaller country and despite their major gaming crazes, they don't usually buy out things or anything. It'll probably be pretty slow there. And 500,000? 500,000 Wii's were sold the first day in Japan. This is going to be HUGE. In the USA I predict about 2 mil on the first day, and like 10mil for the next two years.
