    Too Human could possibly be in the list of 360 exclusives, but opinions of this game are mixed so, its a toss up.

    I would have to agree with you on that one, its not a game, but the casual crowd of the Wii are going to suck this up like sugar through a straw.

    Despite the casual crowd and how much they will love Wii Fit, that won't sell nearly as much as Brawl will here in North America. Brawl will so a lot of copies, its crazy.

    brawl won't be a very successful game.

    ...it's going to be the succesful game.

    WiiFit will be the best selling game of 2008.

    1.4 million in just 2 months in Japan alone.

    People in Japan ain't as fat as people in the U.S. The U.S. is always looking for the next quick fix in dieting/excercise. If sales in the U.S. surpass Brawl don't be surprised.

    But you also must realize that it'll be much more costly and difficult to churn out copies of Wii Fit in comparison to Brawl. I imagine that Nintendo will have the same kind of trouble meeting demand with Wii Fit that they do with the Wii itself.

    I don't see them having as much trouble with Brawl saying as it's just a disc inside a case.. not a high tech board put inside a large box..

    But, I do agree that Wii Fit will still sell rather well in the States due to approximately like 2/3 of our population being considered overweight or obese.. I imagine the media will be all over it..

    Of course, I still think Brawl will outsell Wii Fit..

    Yeah, with two platforms to work with it shouldn't have any trouble at all.

    I know I'll be buying:

    Brawl
    Mario Kart
    Fable 2
    GOW 2
    MGS 4
    Little Big Planet
    GTA 4 and
    Madden 09 off this list.

    Another game that I think will sell very well that's not listed: Spore

    Good points. One problem with Wii Fit sales might be its release date. It will prolly be released a couple months after Brawl giving Brawl a huge(millions of copies) head start.
    Since this topic is about sales in 08. Brawl might win this year. But I think eventually Wii Fit is gonna sell like Thriller.

    I think Nintendo is smart in releasing Wii Fit in May. It will sell out and be hard to find. Giving it some time to be released may mean it may be easier to find come Christmas...but I doubt you will be able to find it during Christmas either!

    My pick - Wii Fit FTW!

    *sigh* to think in a couple of years every wii fit user will be skinny but deprived of outside fitness. xDD
