Super Mario Galaxy's First Week Sales: 500k

Apparently Nintendo has some early sales figures for their hot new game, Super Mario Galaxy, and the news is good for the big N. According to (among other sites, and a press release), Super Mario Galaxy has sold 500,000 units. This makes it the fastest selling Mario game in the history of the franchise.

George Harrison:
Super Mario Galaxy had the strongest one-week debut of any Wii game to date and has also become the best-selling Mario title ever in its first week, with US sales of more than 500,000, based on internal sales figures...

It totally deserves it, but fastest selling Mario game ever? That really puts the Halo sales figures in perspective.
