atma998 (on 22 July 2012)
Wow 7.84M! Definitely the best selling game of the franchise.

atma998 (on 27 November 2011)

Where is the sequel Nintendo? This game has sold more copies than all four gamecube entries combined.

@makingmusic476 - wii party have more success, in the 10th week it had sold 3,0 mio. mario has so many spin off games, when there are to lot games with mario it could be danger. nintendo shouldn't make a new mario party. wii party is the right way. super mario is a jump'n'run series. mario kart is specially .
makingmusic476 (on 13 December 2010)
@OneTwoThree: I don't think they slowed development down for the sake of the franchise. I think they stopped it completely in favor of Wii Party. Thankfully the sales of Wii Party should help convince them to bring back Mario!
OneTwoThree (on 10 December 2010)
It's a good thing Nintendo stopped making a new MP every year. This way they can put much more work into each title, and the anticipation will be much greater.
Spidey-RJ (on 29 October 2010)
Don´t get me wrong, but this game was quite a disappointment to me.
chocoloco (on 17 May 2010)
Great fun, but to much reliance on chance in the game.
Kai Master (on 08 May 2010)
7.6M according to Nintendo.
Twista (on 06 May 2010)
Online party next!!!!
atma998 (on 06 February 2010)
7 million!
I like Bacon (on 04 February 2010)
slightly adjusted downwards.
I like Bacon (on 01 February 2010)
7 million next week.
killeryoshis (on 20 December 2009)
I want mario party 9 with Motion +
marcianito (on 17 December 2009)
I think the next mario game for the wii it's gonna be Mario Party 9, just look at the sales!
chazy13 (on 13 December 2009)
this really didnt deserve the sales , its no where near as good as mario galaxy
IxisNaugus (on 27 November 2009)
I still haven't picked this up yet. I'll get it later or if i see for reeeeeeeally cheap, got a lot of other games i'd rather buy first though.

I wonder when they'll announce another Mario Party game, it has been a while...
TheConduit (on 21 October 2009)
Where is the sequel?
Is 6.7 million for a crap game not good enough?
Not every game can sell like Mario Kart Wii or New Super Mario Bros DS
TheConduit (on 10 September 2009)
The devil number 666

Mario party 8 is (for now) pure EVIL
Nintendogamer (on 11 August 2009)

Mario Party 8 is already out.
RunescapeFan (on 03 August 2009)
It Was Okay Nothing Compared To #3 Though
TheConduit (on 20 July 2009)
Why is it taking them so long to bring out mario party 8

I mean this is a gamecube game with tacked on motion controls that can only be considered below average and still sold 6.6million.

Its time to party

PS: does anyone think it would be a good idea to make a theme park based of mario party
killeryoshis (on 12 July 2009)
@ the guy below me
I'm not :-( I want a new mario party. With motion controls. also if you don't like it ignore it
gandenkris (on 11 July 2009)
I'm glad theyre not milking the Mario Party franchise anymore. 8 (10 if you count handhelds) games is enough.
Wii_Master (on 10 July 2009)
should reach 8-10m ltd
I like Bacon (on 07 June 2009)
If Nintendo is having another conference in October like they did last year, I expect it to be announced there. Release date would be Q2-Q4 2010 most likely.
Chibilobolib (on 31 May 2009)
By christmas i suppose.
killeryoshis (on 24 May 2009)
When is mario party 9 coming out?
volrath50 (on 23 May 2009)
I miss having a new mario party each year. :(
Araknie87 (on 08 May 2009)
Have reached 6 millions and a half.

It's better than MP7 and 4, but it's far from the best the MP6.

Damn GC, cause of the pieces sold of the console, no one knows the best games of the history, MP6 it's one of them, you all must try it for sure, trust me.
DavidValbu (on 15 March 2009)
Maybe because they are very surprised and are prepairing a very good one.
TheConduit (on 07 March 2009)
I dont understand why Nintendo kept putting out mario party games out year after year untill they port 8 to the Wii and it sells over 6 million then 2 years later and still nothing to be heard of a sequel.
shizzlee (on 26 January 2009)
This game is boring now. Give me a sequel with online play :D
paulkelly1980 (on 16 January 2009)
So disappointed got it on uk release day had it two day and traded it in for raving rabbids.
atma998 (on 06 January 2009)
6 millions!!!!
ugg1020 (on 04 January 2009)
Wow this is still selling very well. Looks like Nintendo won't be releasing a new one anytime soon with these sales.
krimoz911 (on 31 December 2008)
I had fun playing this

DavidValbu (on 30 December 2008)
It is going to reach 6 million! It has sold more than Gears of War. Is Mario Party 8 so good? I read some reviews saying the opposite...
TheConduit (on 30 December 2008)
Dude if a game obviously originally intended for the gamecube can add Wii control and sell 6 million then how many copies will one built specifically for the Wii from the ground sell.
Im putting my prediction at 10 million
pokemonfan_2611 (on 29 December 2008)
its near to 6 million
megamario621 (on 25 December 2008)
Sorry, I own this
vglover08 (on 03 December 2008)
Is it me or did this game just sell 100,000 copies this past week? Coz if it did sell that much, then I'm very impressed!
trestres (on 28 May 2008)
Great game to play on multiplayer, boring single player after a while.

The best selling MP to date, it could get to 6 million if there's no MP9 this year
MontanaHatchet (on 23 May 2008)
Well Okey, what about Wii Play?
--OkeyDokey-- (on 07 May 2008)
Easily the worst game to ever sell 5 million copies.

What a turd.
SJGohan3972 (on 30 April 2008)
wasn't this at 5.12, now its back to 5m even what's up with that?
bigjon (on 16 April 2008)
sales for this game are terrible..

even Ninjabreadman sold more....
kopstudent89 (on 08 April 2008)
hits 5!!
Edouble24 (on 03 April 2008)
If MP9 releases right before the holidays how is it the first year without a new one? Anyway we didn't get a Mario Party game in 2006.
bigjon (on 28 March 2008)
this could hit 6 million... I hope Nintendo releases a new MP to kill it off soon....
Joeron (on 22 March 2008)
Expect MP9 to be released just before the holidays. I can't believe this will be the first year without a new MP game.
SiegWahrheit (on 21 March 2008)
I agree. But it depends on when MP9 will be released..., this year?
bigjon (on 18 March 2008)
I think in the long run TP will have more sales. (VERY long run)

MP 9 will stop 8's sales in its tracks, but a new Zelda may actually boost TP. (especially in the few month before its release, if nintendo hypes it)
RidersDX (on 15 March 2008)
I gave the game an 8. Before you ask, yes. It is my very first Mario Party game. And I consider myself a casual gamer too. But there are some other party games I prefer over this.
supermariouniverse (on 25 February 2008)
These sales are crazy...and it passed Twilight Princess! Crazy....
Punisher (on 10 February 2008)
Pretty good multiplayer game. Not so good with singleplayer.
Hopefully more refined controls/games for MP 9 and Wi-fi.
Solid 8/10
Gnosis (on 09 February 2008)
Has now passed Twilight Princess.
I like Bacon (on 03 February 2008)
It will pass Twilight Princess for Wii next week.
kopstudent89 (on 01 February 2008)
It will sell more than all the Mario Parties combined!! muahahaha!!!
ok I'm exaggerating a bit... still awesome sales
fgkiller (on 24 January 2008)
Best selling mario party of all!!
tokilamockingbrd (on 14 January 2008)
I said that on Dec 9.... I did not forsee what the holidays would bring...
Joemanji (on 09 January 2008)
I think 6.5 million lifetime will be a safer bet.
tokilamockingbrd (on 08 December 2007)
OMG, this game could sell 5 million before all is said and done.... We are gonna completely change our perseptions of what sells by the time the Wii generation is done.
Hyperion (on 03 December 2007)
Is this game really going to outsell Zelda:TP? I just can't fathom such a notion =(
RSEagle (on 27 November 2007)
I have 1-5 and I've played them all and I find I have less and less fun with each new installment.
Squire (on 03 November 2007)
i will wait for a month and buy me a game with reduced price (they always do such things with popular OR crappy games) this one is popular.
konnichiwa (on 22 October 2007)
X__X It is the best party game in sales but still I don't like it so much.

2.5 million is a lot.
ugg1020 (on 15 October 2007)
MP8 shows that some series are PERFECT for the Wii.
ClaudeLv250 (on 02 October 2007)
Good God, if Mario Party 8 sales are like this...what does this say for Super Mario Galaxy?
ElRhodeo (on 20 September 2007)
Crazy, I just realized that Mario Party 8 is going to be the best selling game in the series in a few weeks. 380.000 less than MP 1 at the moment.
Onimusha12 (on 20 September 2007)
People are so bothered by this games success its almost funny. Just let it be people, its casual, that's the sort of thing that sells on the Wii.
quarashi (on 19 September 2007)
Warioware is ass compared to any mario party. Returned it after 2 weeks but only played it for about a week.
This game isn't really for playing by yourself which I'm pretty sure anyone who gives it a bad review or score does...but if thats a no can do and you're by yourself remember to use alcohol or drugs with every use.
ckmlb (on 06 September 2007)
A crappy game only suitable for people into casual games like it.

Buy Warioware instead, it has better Wii mote use too.
valen200 (on 26 August 2007)
For me the game is great, however I have not played any of the older versions. I have heard the complaint a lot that it does not really change a lot from year-to-year. I will probably hold off on MP9 until I see reviews or rent it.
jv103 (on 22 August 2007)
I'm going to have to give this a 5/10. Reason being, it's the same thing. It feels rushed to me and there's not a ton of innovation with the mini-games. I found myself using the wii mote too much like a regular controller. I was hoping for games that used the wii-mote in tons of ways. Like Wario ware (which I loved). It's definitely a good party game. Although brawl most likely will be the game I bust out for multiplayer action.
Arkk (on 15 August 2007)
Make that extra fun with friends and liquor hahahaha!!
Arkk (on 15 August 2007)
Fun with friends. 8.5
Crap on the lonesome. 5

Lanceuppercut: Make that another multi million seller lol.
ckmlb (on 14 August 2007)
The fact that this game is rated in the high 7s and some of the best games of all time are rated crap tells me everything I need to know...
Hus (on 11 August 2007)
A solid 5, a very mediocre game.
shams (on 07 August 2007)
For casual gamers, I think this is a must-buy. Best party game on the Wii - although it certainly has flaws. The more MP titles you have played in the past, the less you may like this.

A solid 7.
MontanaHatchet (on 03 August 2007)
Terrible waste of money. I'm sorry, but this game sucks....a lot.

Even if you can convince yourself that you're not bored after 2 hours, the game is terribly designed. The levels...everything. I rate this a 1 because it was an utter waste of cash.
leo-j (on 27 July 2007)
Whats up with " El dia se va acabar en tres horas" the spanish? Why is it a 7, I dont know why it isnt a 9, I dont know this game is a 8.5
Lanceuppercut (on 26 July 2007)
Another million-seller for Wii. This brings the total to 8.
greenbull4477 (on 07 July 2007)
Esta semana lo vi en las tiendas de mi país y la verdad es que me llama mucho esta entrega me la pillaré para verano. jeje
*Yoshi* (on 20 June 2007)
Mucho se ha criticado este juego.

A mi el retorno de la saga de Mario Party me parece espectacular, es un juego que me ha divertido mucho, más con el Wiimote.

Se los recomiendo.
