I wonder if we'll get a sequel on Wii. Not happened with a proper Mario games since the SNES, which kind of suck when you think about it.

There's no reason why this can't carry on selling all through the Wii's lifetime if they start doing "players choice" and bundles and whatnot.

Well ElRodeo.

8 million copies and still selling is more than enough to be honest.
Not many games can sell this much. Add the fact that it will 100% for sure do at least another million with its legs and the posibility of getting to 10 million ... how can you be dissappointed with the sales numbers.

Look at Halo ... widely regarded one of the best selling franchises and this is only 1 million behind and it came out months later.

looks like the holiday boost is starting to seep in on this one.

Was selling 25k a week for a little while there, now nearing 40k, should be over 75k a week starting mid nov, and sell over 100k 2-3 weeks. Should gain 600-750k from now until holiday rush subsides.

Maybe if it really rebounds we may reach be looking at Galaxy over 8 mil, by mid Jan... But for now I am hopeful we see it at least 7.65-7.75m

Yep and selling about 30k a week so will be at about 7.2 million before we hit Novemeber. Then my guess is it will sell about 800k in the rest of that time considering its a huge holiday title so 8 million probably by the end of the year.

It's questionable if it'll ever make 10 million considering I thought this would have better legs.

It doesn't need a bundle considering its still selling around 80-100k a week months 6 months after launch.

It has outsold Mario Sunshine and has a shot .... at Mario 64, though I think it will come up a short by 1 or 2 million when all is said and done.

Either way, Nintendo has to be THRILLED with Mario Galaxy's performance so far ...

And its sells will be very strong during the holidays 08 aswell.

As for bundles, Wii Sports seems to be doing a pretty good job selling the Wii, so that is not going to happen.

Hey, fair enough.

I really hope this game ends up with some really high sales. It's a fantastic and addictive adventure.

Although I thought I would go insane doing the Green Star Galaxy. At least I had gotten 99 lives from doing the Blooper challenge so many times.

It was just an example.So lets say 30000 and 3 years or whatever.And in the end it doesn't count if it reaches SM64 sales.I was happy to see that it outsold SMS and that at least one game(still hoping for BK & Sonic Unleashed)is keeping the 3D platforming genre alive.

Oliist: So you really expect it to still be selling 60k a week a year and a half from now?

Let us say this game has at least a weekly average of 60.000 copies.
That would mean it would equal the sales of Super Mario 64 in 91weeks from now.That is definitively a reachable goal imo. The gap between them is at 5.45 million at 05/09/ be continued.

It's on sale for only a half-year it is still selling about 100k a week, I don't see a reason for it not to outsell Mario 64 (it will easily get passed 9 million, I believe it will pas it be the end of the year.)

No way this is selling more than Mario 64. That'd mean it'd have to almost double the sales it has now. I'd say 9 million tops.

Really great game though, happy to see it passed Sunshine in sales.

I see this game selling more than Super Mario 64, meaning that it will sell more than 12 million copies

Definitely my favorite game of all time, I have beaten it four times now. Bought the 3D All Stars collection just for this one game alone, wasn't disappointed. The game still holds up even today, truly a masterpiece.

Nintendo says 12.59m as of september 30.

Lower than Brawl again now, but yeah, still undertracked by at least a million.

Undertracked by over a million copies. I was pretty surprised to discover this sold more than Brawl according to Nintendo. Definetely deserved.

Seems pretty heavily under tracked indeed. Nintendo has it at 12.22m as of April. Should at least be nearing 12m in real life by now. If it is at 12m, that means it finally overtook Super Mario 64 as the best selling 3D Mario game!
