Nintendo of Australia has supplied us with some information regarding their overall software performance for 2007; from DS and Wii console sell through to what the top three performing titles were for both machines.

According to The Big N Australia, life-to-date sales of the DS are at 988,168 while the Wii is still climbing from 293,990 at the end of 2007. The top three software performers in 07 for both platforms were as follows:

Nintendo DS:
  • Pokemon Diamond and Pearl - 167,319
  • Dr Kawashima's Brain Training - 78,279
  • More Brain Training From Dr Kawashima - 67,095
Nintendo Wii:
  • Wii Play with Wii Remote - 114,600
  • Super Mario Galaxy - 54,079
  • Mario Party 8 - 52,530
Given Wii Play with the Wii Remote has both been available since the Wii's launch and is incredible value it makes sense it would be number one, but it's also interesting to see that in just over a month Super Mario Galaxy shot straight to number two with just under 50% sales of the top game. It's sad to see Mario Party 8 so high when other top games such as Metroid Prime 3 have been available for a little while. No surprises in the DS camp for top games though, but it would have been nice to see our old pal Link make a strong debut.

Moving into 2008, Nintendo still have their latest peripheral-driven title to hit, Wii Fit, while the whole Wii community (and beyond) wait with baited breath for the hotly anticipated online party romp, Super Smash Bros Brawl. No word on an Aussie release date yet, but the US release was just recently push back to March 9. We'll keep bugging Nintendo of Australia for a date though.

Numbers shmumbers... give us actual news Nintendo, not just statistics!

I'm surprised Super Mario Galaxy has jumped so high so fast. I recently got it for my birthday and I'm loving it so far! Interesting to note is that I've never been a Mario fan - the only Mario game I own is Super Mario Bros. on NES and Super Mario Land (gift given late in the life of the GameBoy). I guess it shows how much of a hook the game can be.
