Super Smash Brothers Brawls becomes fastest selling game

Post by yourew »

After just one week on store shelves, Super Smash Bros.(R) Brawl for Wii has become the fastest-selling video game in Nintendo of America's history. Since its launch on March 9, the feature-packed fighting action game has sold more than 1.4 million units in the United States, including more than 874,000 on March 9 alone. It has sold at a rate of more than 120 units per minute between launch and March 16.

Eh, Brawl is okay ... not that great really. I mean I enjoy playing it (as long as other people are playing) but it doesn't seem that much different than Melee.

$47 isn't really a great deal, it's $49.99 at EBGames .... yourew, if you're the author of (or connected to) dealstudio.com I'd ask that you not post threads about those kinda links, it may be construed as spamming. Thanks!

They're just happy because the wii finally has a second game that is worth playing that is not a lazy gamecube port.


Just bought a ps3 a few days ago so I thought it'd be fun to go all fanboy. :P

Ratchet and Clank and Unchartered. And I'm waiting for the new team Ico game (Shadow of the colussus is the best ps2 game if y'ask me) and little big planet. Then there's god of war 3 and LA Noire. Oh, and heavy rain supposedly went ps3 exclusive.

I'm mostly waiting for GTA IV though, which is multiplatform anyway. :P

So, more importantly... What DOS game characters would you like to see in a hypothetical Smash Bros game and what would their moves/etc be like?
