    I wonder how much influence did had the mario party 9 game in the big increase on the wii numbers, i havent picked this tittle yet, maybe next month when i will be receiving an extra cash, fingers crossed, for what i heard is a good mario party tittle better than the previous two, but my favorites are 3,4 and 6, here is hoping that it has something in common with those said tittles.
