Aussie Charts: We Have A New Number One!

nds_pokemon_platinum_pkg3dYes! Wii Fit might be the fastest selling game in Australian history, but it is no longer top of the weekly sales chart.

Hey, it's Pokemon! The rehash Platinum edition shoots straight to the top of the chart after launching on May 14. Wii Fit, Wii Play and Mario Kart step aside, ready to resume their normal positions next week when everyone's bored of Pokemon.

Note the complete absence of Xbox 360 games in the top 10.

All Format Full-Priced Games Top 10 for the w/e May 17:

1. Pokemon Platinum (DS) 2. Wii Fit (Wii) 3. Wii Play (Wii) 4. Mario Kart (Wii) 5. Brain Training (DS) 6. More Brain Training (DS) 7. Singstar Queen (PS2) 8. Maths Training (DS) 9. Guitar Hero: World Tour (Wii) 10. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (PS3)


    I bought Pokemon Platinum. My first Pokemon game since Pokemon Blue on the GameBoy. Despite owning GTA:CW, New Super Mario Bros and FF:CC, this has held my attention the most.

    You mean it's not top of the charts this week. It'll be back there again in a week or two. :(

    How embarrassing.. only one next-gen title on that list, sitting there at No. 10?

    PS - I thought the X360 was some mega popular console? Not selling any software from the looks of it...

      *Troll Warning*

        Yes, I am a troll.

        Sorry for stating the obvious in my post - maybe I should suck up to all you X360 owners who LOVE buying so many games every week...

      hahaha...wait til november when there are like 5 xbox games sitting in there and Halo 3 ODST at number 1 then we can finally break this embarrasing nintendo streak.


    does that mean its good?

      To be number 1 in the february--august period you have to be advertised, gimmicky and popular with the 8-15 year being serious. I wish publishers would ready some real videogames for this period of the year...its funny because nintendo rarely get a top 3 game in the november--january period.

      It probably is good for a Pokemon game...but obviously games do not have to be good to be number 1.
