    While not nearly as epic as Halo 3, sales-wise, the sequel to one of the most popular Nintendo-based multiplayer games has hit it big. Super Smash Brothers: Brawl, where gamers throw famous characters from classic games at each other, sold 800 thousand copies in the first week of sales. This puts the game at the top of all current game charts, outselling Sony's Devil May Cry 4 by several hundred thousand units. Other than those two games, here are the top five games in Japan right now:
    • Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii) - 819,647 units
    • Devil May Cry 4 (PS3) - 205,390 units
    • Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut (PS2) - 116,928 units
    • Suzumiya Haruhi no Tomadoi (PS2) - 114,335 units
    • Wii Fit (Wii) - 73,325 units

    I'm thinking Wii owners are clamoring for a decent new title, this is the best that was available. (Though I can't WAIT for MarioKart to drop!!)

    I am considering a wii just for this game alone. The only thing that is stopping me is the online system (the BS about friend code and multiplayer only works via friend request...how do you meet new players?).

    That's why the wii sucks ass. Besides, Smash is a super high-speed game. Playing online will be auto-trash since you'll be playing at 150ms Ping or more most of the time. Anyway this is prob the only game I'll ever buy for this shit of a console, and I'll be using oldschool cube controllers.

    Most Wii users could give a shit less about that stuff. Most Wii users love to play the Wii sports and the interactive games that use the controller to its most. To me thats all Wii is good for anyways. Ill be the first one to agree that Wii sucks but the game play is soooo fun with the controller and the right games
