Did the NPD stats break out top 10 sales by each console?

If so, it would be cool to see them...

I'm sure they did, but I didn't have access to that information. I'll see what I can find.

iTunes only updates its list once every 24 hours, so it's not showing up just yet. But I actually changed this for the future so that it should show up on iTunes within one hour after I publish a new podcast.

You need to listen to it LadyM, I mention you several times! ;D

You mentioned me, too. And although I would LOVE to help with setting up the MKDS tournament(s), it might be notable to point out that I don't have a DS. ;) I will still gladly help, though.

Listening now, sounds good so far :D.
By the way it is actually pronounced "Fee-fa". You can now win various pronounciation argument.
From various independant reviews here in the UK it doesnt look like FIFA street has much to recommend it, it looks like a bit of an exercise of style over substance...:P

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Tetris is a horrible game that should have been wiped out a long time ago. "Wow, let's combine blocks and try to keep them from reaching the top, SO BRILLIANT AND COOL, OHMYGAAAAAAAWZ!"

It comes as no surprise that you would like a mindlessly repetitive game like that since you're always lavishing World of Warcraft with attention.

I don't want to sound like a GamingSteve fanboy, but please be more courteous. Not just to Steve, but to the members in general.

Well, this IS his website, so I see nothing wrong with that. ;)

And Kagan, you can't harp on people for their tastes in games. Everyone is different. Just because you may not like Tetris, does not mean it is a bad game. Try to be more tolerant of other people's opinions, it makes the forum a better place for everybody. :)

Aye, I can, because people that share his opinions are the reason why mindless games like World of Warcraft are able to do so well, despite the fact that they have little to no substance to them. This causes the gaming market to shift to cater to mindless gamers, which affects me since I want games with substance and actual gameplay.
