I just can believe that Mario Party 8 outsold Hot Shots Golf. Not that it's a big deal just didn't expect it.

Considering the difference in the install base, that's a good showing for Sony's title. I'm not surprised by the house of Mario's continued success, but I am somewhat surprised to see it's not selling in a higher ratio to Wii sales. Good showing for Oblivion as well, anyone know if they are doing a ps3 version over there?
