    Wow, I'm surprised Luigi's Mansion beat out Halo. Hmmm...

    Luigi=Related to Mario=Big Nintendo game for the uninformed

    Hope that explains it.

    Looks like Sony is still on top. Maybe the console being one year old and the same price says "still great quality" to consumers and not "overpriced."

    Of course it did, Nintendo is selling the game in Japan as well, MS still has a couple months to go before it starts to tap in to that market. I'm kind of surprised Halo is that high on the list considering that majority of the units being sold are in a 3rd of the market that SONY is enjoying and half the market that Nintendo is enjoying.

    If anyone else is interested, Project Gotham came in at #13, DOA3 was #14, and NFL Fever was #18.
    Also, I'm impressed that the PSX still has a game in the top ten a year after its successor came out. Of course, it IS Harry Potter...I imagine they could make Hogwarts' toilet seats and they would be best sellers at Home Depot...

    Don't forget Dave - there is no PS2 Potter game; this has probably got something to do with the success of the PSOne version.
