Nintendo really sold big this week with 7 of their games in the top 10 although soccer is still the big winner.

I wanna play those Detective Club games.

The murderer is... YOU! *commercial break*

Odd how they insist on marking GBA and GBASP seperatly. That in mind, more like 4X :D. Also, that in mind, GBA outsells PS2 for year-wide sales. OOOOOonnne more thing! I see the PSX has pretty much vanished. Guess no one wanted a deluxe PS2...

Don't you love how we won't get Lost Levels or Kid Icarus?

Great Rumbler
That in mind, more like 4X

4x? Actually with the GBA sells and SP sells combined it'd 70,000 or almost exactly 3x more than the total sales of the XBox.

Guess I did too much rounding...

Anyway, I already have Kid Icarus and Lost Levels (all-stars form), and well, you all know my stance on getting these games...

A Black Falcon
Kid Icarus especially. At least we saw forms of LL on the SNES and GBC...
