Super Smash Bros. Brawl knocks sales records into the sky

Smashing (get it? Get it?) Nintendo of America's first-week sales records (held at one point by Pokemon Gold and Silver), Super Smash Bros. Brawl has sold a ridiculous 1.4 million copies from its March 9th launch (and, well, before that) and yesterday. That comes out to 120 copies a minute. Nintendo's Cammie Dunaway described the reaction to Brawl in sweeping, but appropriate, terms: "Super Smash Bros. Brawl has made the leap from video game to cultural phenomenon."

We get the feeling our Game Nights are just going to continue to get more crowded, which is okay! We're happy to lose to a large and varied group.
