Aussie Charts: So. Much. Sport.


It appears to be the week of sports games, with a mix of actual sports, pseudo-sports, and Nazi-zombie-shooting sports. All up, it looks like a lot of gamers are moving about and breaking a sweat.

Question: WHY, DEAR GOD WHY!?

Perhaps there is still some mental scarring from year 9 PE that prevents me from appreciating the likes of Ashes Cricket 2009 and Grand Slam Tennis (note: there was a tennis ball, my face, blood, and braces involved - go figure). Oh well.

All Format Full-Priced Games Top 10 for the w/e August 30:

1. Wii Sports Resort (Wii) 2. Wii Fit (Wii) 3. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (Wii) 4. Grand Slam Tennis (Wii) 5. Wii Play (Wii) 6. Mario Kart (Wii) 7. Ashes Cricket 2009 (PS3) 8. Brain Training (DS) 9. The Sims 3 (PC/MAC) 10. Wolfenstein (PS3)


    Ummm... No 360 games?!

    That might be a first for the year... and the PS3 was basically out of stock for that week also...

    Next week with Batman will be a big showdown...

      Nahh, I remember a few months back that the only titles were Wii and DS games.
      No PS or XBox games

    Or maybe not...

    It'd be crazy to think the 360 would be able to compete with the number of copies going free with the PS3 slim, added to stand alone sales.

    Im more disgraced that we buy those shitty EA SPORTS

      Just because you don't like sports games, does not mean those games are shitty. Seriously, when is the last time you looked at an EA sports game? Yes, they are mass-produced, low-brow games, but the standard they are made to is -exceptionally- high (there's a reason why they are unbeaten in the sports game category).

    I think Grand Slam and Tiger are up there because a couple of retailers were giving away an extra (so two) Motion Plus units with them for like $69. That's a massive saving, they're probably only going to be played on Wii Sports Resort though :/

    I'm assuming a lot of us gamers are mentally scarred from PE. :P

    I was never interested in sports, and I defiently won't be interested in these EA sports games either. I'd had expected big releases to atleast get to #1 for at least 5 minutes. Damn you Nintendo!

      Tiger woods looks like he's uttering the same thing as he looks towards the heavens.

    sims or sims 3? fist typo Tracey?

    look forward to more Aussie posts from you

      Thanks for spotting the typo; it's fixed now! :D
