This Week in Gaming Sales History (August 8 - 14)

VGChartz - "This week we are taking a look at the beginning of the current generation, the week of 11 August 2007. This was a time when the Xbox 360 still had the console lead over the Wii; however that would only last one more week when the Wii passes it and it would become the fastest selling console of all time. The PlayStation 3 and Wii were only nine months old at the time and the PS3 was not even released six months ago in Europe. When it comes to major releases Halo 3 was a month away, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Super Mario Galaxy were 3 months away."

The most successful Mario Party game ever, the first with motion controls... and sadly the last... we will miss you Mario Party. In fact, Mario Party 8 is the most successful game of all time that has "Party" in the title! What a great ending for a series.

Now let the age of Wii Party begin!

Yeah I have a feeling that Wii Party will basically be carrying the Mario Party brand on now...
