Wii's winners and losers in Japan

We can't exactly trust the validity of the numbers used to create this list of best-selling games across the three home platforms, since it's just some guy on Geocities doing it (and he claims that he might alter numbers to deter copying) but they're close enough to our expectations for most games....

Mario & Sonic & An Unhealthy Obsession

"I predict that it will sell 4 copies total." "I feel that this game will bomb but only because of the olympic theme." "Ha ha ha!" Those are just a small number of your initial responses to Sega's prediction that Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games would sell four million copies worldwide....
