RE: Japan : Mario Party DS hit 1.5 Million
I think everyone is over-estimating the power of casual games on the DS. Just because NOV NPD for MPDS was less than 370K doesn't mean it was 369K, as you seem to be assuming.
The success of a game in Japan does not dictate the success of a game in NA and Europe. I would be careful talking about "legs", as well; its a buzzword people use too much, I think. In the absence of hype and sales, people fall back on the mythical "legs" argument, and a lot of times it's just not right.
Like you said, in a week we'll know who was wrong and who was right. I've got a pretty big bet that it's going to be less than 350k for December. That's my position.
