In just a week, the first outing for Mario on Wii has seen a huge success with over 500,000 copies sold in the U.S. alone.
The game is also doing well in reviews, having scored an overall 97.4% on GameRankings.com, coming very close to the much heralded Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time which has an aggregate score of 97.6%. It's all good news for Nintendo and with Christmas closing in, sales can only go up. Not that it's a bad thing. Galaxy is an amazingly fun game.
