Software sales coming at ya! Broken up by console:

Nintendo Wii

North America
1. Super Paper Mario
2. WarioWare: Smooth Moves
3. Wii Play
4. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
5. Spider-Man 3

Japan
1. Wii Sports
2. Wii de Yawaraka Atama Juku
3. Super Paper Mario
4. Hajimete no Wii
5. Zelda no Densetsu: Twilight Princess

UK
1. Wii Play
2. Eledees
3. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 
4. Red Steel
5. WarioWare: Smooth Moves

Overall, it seems SPM interest is down in Japan, sort of the same turn Legend of Zelda: TP took earlier this year. What's uplifting is where the game stands in America, though some may argue that the competition is scarce. SPM hasn't been released in the UK, but WWSM still stands strong in the top 5. Okay, moving onto the DS sales....


Nintendo DS

North America
1. Pokemon Diamond
2. Pokemon Pearl
3. Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day
4. New Super Mario Bros.
5. Mega Man ZX

Japan
1. TOEIC Test DS Training
2. Eigo ga Nigate na Otona no DS Training: Motto Eigo Duke
3. Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings
4. Touhoku Daigaku Mirai Kagaku Gijutsu Kyoudou Kenkyuu Center Kawashima Ryuuta Kyouju Kanshuu: Motto Nou wo Kitaeru Otona no DS Training
5. Eigo ga Nigate na Otona no DS Training: Eigo Duke

UK
1. Cooking Mama
2. Nintendogs: Lab & Friends
3. Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training
4. New Super Mario Bros.
5. Final Fantasy III

After looking at these, I must say I continue to be impressed by NSMB strong standing. I know I say that over and over again, but it makes me confident that Mario is still hugely popular in North America. As for Japan, the training craze continues, while the UK sort of mirrors North American trends. Fun fact: Mega Man ZX saw a jump due to a sale on Amazon.

<Kojinka> When I saw this thread back on top, I was afraid this was gonna be another pointless bump by a new member, but when I saw Super-Jesse's username, my fears were laid to rest.
