RE: Japan : Mario Party DS hit 1.5 Million
The UK 2007 list have Brain Age at #2, with 1 Million sales (not sure whether it is 2007 sales only, or LTD #), even though Brain Age in US is not (AFAIK) yet 1 Million. Assuming that Europe will do at least as well as US is not unrealistic.
About total 5-6 million, you might think it is unrealistic, but I feel it realistic. Anyway, we only have to wait 1 more week before knowing which one is right / wrong.
Let's say I was wrong, and Dec 07 NPD only have Mario Party at 370K (it should be 740, but let's say only 370), then US already account for 740K for first 2 months. Let's say Europe figure is the same, also 740K (in the future, in the first 2 months since release). GLS for US should be 740K x 2 = 1.5 Million. GLS for Europe also 1.5 Million.
Total for Japan (2.5 - 3) + US + Europe (3 Million) give us a total of 5.5 - 6, even higher than my original estimate of 5 - 6 Million GLS WW.
As Just_Ben mentioned, NEVER underestimate the power of legs on casual titles. It has been proven in Japan, and it has also been proven in US (via Super Smach Brother Melee, the ultimate casual fighting game on GC).
