by what, a few thousands? ED sold like 100,000 last month. I thinks it not acceptable by Nintendo.

This can't be good news for Nintendo, when one of their big gun games sells bad like this. I bet the head of NOA is sweatin' his job security right now. The big N has droped from the #2 slot to #3 behind the Xbox in Nintendo's biggest market, North America and one of it's flagship titles will be lucky if it can sell 200,000 copies.

For June and July:

Eternal Darkness: 134,000

Bruce Lee: 74,000

Hmm, when did that Bruce Lee title come out? ED came out June 24...

Always a shame when people not only miss out on a good game, but they pick up a weak title instead...

What kind of message does this send to developers? Take a great license, make a craptabulous mess out of it and some suckers will fall for it instead of a well-thought out game?

I don't get it, Madden sells million units every year. Why does people have to buy more than one football game.

The secret of the sucess in the sports game industry is that each year they get to release a minimally modified game with all the new official details of the year's season.

If you are a huge football fan, you will want the game with the official player rosters and teams, rather than some outdated version thats a year or two old.
