The week that had two Marios and two Sonics at the Olympic Games.
The DS version of the mascot-based Olympics game made a bold entry this week. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games almost reached the colossal weekly sales of Wii Fit.
Wii Sports is also inching its way towards the three million mark, which indicates that a large proportion of the estimated 3.7 million Wii owners in Japan have a copy.
Super Mario Galaxy, however, seems to be crawling its way towards the one million mark. At this rate, it will take about three more months to reach that number.
