    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. :yesnod:

    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.

    Time for Nintendo to crack the whip and push out more Wii's before US release. Be honest, is anyone really surprised by these numbers? It's freakin' Brawl we are talking about here.

    500,000 in Japan is a very good number sold if Halo only managed to sell twice that much on a global release. North American first day sales will easily top a million. The only concern is, will it sell out so quickly that getting your hands on a copy will be impossible. Hopefully Nintendo will base their projections on the Japanese sales and ensure that it's fairly easy to find a copy of it on the shelves.

    This game will win game of the year. there will not be many wii owners without brawl. By this Christmas season most people will already own it.

    I can also see it topping the Nintendo WFC list for quite some time.
