It honestly surprises me that there aren't more of you out there frothing to get your hands on Super Smash Bros. Brawl. No game has a 100% attract rate, of course, but somehow I expected more unfettered anticipation. So I learned something today. Who says polling isn't useful? As for me, I'm planning to just pick it up off the shelf on release day. I have some accumulated gift cards that are burning a hole in my pocket, so why not use them for something wonderful?
That brings us to another Smash-related question for this week, and I'm especially interested in this topic now that I see that Smash isn't a total lock for sales and excitement. Some people believe that when the smoke clears at the end of the year Nintendo's upcoming Wii Fit will have outsold Brawl. Which one do you think will outsell the other? My theory is that Brawl will sell massively upon release and taper off gradually as more and more hardcore gamers eventually pick up a Wii, but Wii Fit will start strong for a casual game and sell steadily as word spreads among the retirement homes and senior centers. What's your prediction?
