Last week, Amazon.com didn't have New Super Mario Bros. Wii back in stock until around January 10, and they still have it in stock.
Also last week, Amazon said Wii Sports Resort "Usually ships in 2 to 4 weeks",this week looks like it's back to normal with Amazon having it stock and shipping like normal.
The surprise this week, for me, is that Amazon.com is currently out-of-stock of Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board, but just the game itself is in stock.

Reviews:I forgot to mention this in yesterday's post on the "shooter" data, but I have switched over and I'm now using GameRankings.com's average review scores for the games, instead of MetaCritic.com's.
The only game at this point that I think may see a noticeable change in review score percentage is New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
I think most sites that were going to review Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus have done so by now, even though Wii Fit Plus has a surprisingly low number of overall reviews compared to Wii Sports Resort and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
Wii Sports Resort's score is based on 49 reviews.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii's review score average is based on 51 reviews.
Wii Fit Plus' average score is based just only on 19 reviews.
Last week I said, "I find it pretty crazy that Amazon.com can't keep New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and now Wii Sports Resort, in stock.
Well, this week I'm really surprised that Wii Fit Plus is now currently sold out on Amazon.com.
Also, I rented New Super Mario Bros. Wii this past Sunday(the 10th) and my wife and I have been playing through the game together. I'm planning to post my impressions of the game as soon as we finish.
If you just recently purchased/received any of these games, what do you think of them?
Are any New Super Mario Bros. Wii players still playing the game if you've beaten it once? If so, how many times have you beaten it?
