New games get released every week, as you know. They tend to sell more copies in their first week than at any other time. So the natural way of things is to debut high in the chart and then slide back down. Unless you’re Wii Fit.

Nintendo’s balance board exer-game once again returns to the top of the pile, thus increasing the number of Australian households featuring gurning dads making absolute fools of themselves.

  • I have been using WiiFit to track my weight loss over the last year or so so I like to feel that I have gotten some proper use out it. Yet when I see these charts I always feel like part of the problem.
    I need to go buy Valkyria Chronicles or something like it to re-dress the balance (no pun intended).

  • Im actually disappointed that more people aren’t buying GTA Chinatown Wars… for a DS title (and I own quite a few) it has ridiculously good production values… greate graphics, a manic huge 3d environment (on par with the size of GTA4), rather good physics and great gameplay. I mean, whats wrong with people… its a great game and not many people are buying it globally.

    And yes despite said lack of interiors taste, she is hot, pale with red-hair = win
