    I dont doubt Galaxy sellin 3 million by the end of the year, wait till the holidays are over then look at the numbers....its the Wiis only hit game as of right now, so ofcourse people are gonna buy, just takes time.

    I don't know how accurate this wiki list is but it has Zelda TP down as selling 3.61 million copies since release. Am I right in thinking that was a year ago? So Mario Galaxy will be a borderline failure if it doesn't shift the number of copies that Zelda did (in a year) in 2 months? Daftness!!

    He must be comparing Galaxy's numbers to Halo 3's numbers in America. You have to keep in mind that while the Wii has more worldwide consoles out, the XBox still dominates North America, and has about two million more consoles sold... for now.

    I do agree somewhat that the average Wii owners doesn't spend nearly as much money on games as the average XBox owner. That combined with more XBoxes in circulation, means more numbers for Halo.

    Nintendo reported that Mario Galaxy set the record for most copies sold in one week. But not selling 3 million in 2 months , requiring an almost 1:1 (Wii to game) ratio, is a "borderline failure"? That's why I don't listen to analysts.

    It's because Americans will only buy games where you kill people with guns. That's why the 360 sells well over there, it's all that console has LOL

    The reason Super Mario Galaxy isn't selling is because most kids have school to worry about and don't have time to buy it but I agree they'll start selling like crazy around Christmas

    **** the sale numbers. This game is the highest rated game ever.

    Plus most americans are stupid and only want really violent games.

    I can't wait to play Super Mario Galaxy (Christmas is around the corner)

    Slighty off topic, but what is the game you consider number one?

    I hope you don't say Brawl cos..well..it isn't out yet. And its silly to call a game you havent played the best, even though its looking that it will be apon release.
