Super Mario Galaxy sells big in its first week

Nintendo has just issued a rather boastful press release that Super Mario Galaxy has sold over 500,000 copies in its first week on sale in the US.

The story is too old to be commented.

Aslo Vghartsz was wrong again, so stop using them people

That makes 750,000 in it's first week in the US and Japan combined. Those are great numbers! If Wii owners don't buy any games, I wonder who bought 3/4 of a million copies of Mario Galaxy.

HMM yeah it sold alot..that wasn't expected..remember that lot of kids also like mario...still most Wii games don't sell...etc..!!

sales will tumble next week..then we'll see a spike in holidays ..then it's down again..

you have to wonder though... IS Mario the same super power he was years ago, 500 k in one week is really really good but it doesn't say that people know who Mario is more then Mickey Mouse like it was before

TruthbeTold4016d ago

This 500k puts this game on a pace ahead of any Mario game before it, so actually things are seemingly better for Mario games than ever before. (If we are going to use such a small sample size time-wise that is).

the wii is doing so well. Its doing so much better than the ps3 and 360

Wii ftw

that game deserves a 1:1 ratio, it's simply amazing.
