No. Australian chart overlord Wii Fit is once again the top of the pops this week. Shocking. It's bratty little brother, Wii Play, managed to jump up a slot to close the week in second place. The ever-popular Mario Kart Wii also moved up, positioning itself in third to make it a trifecta for the Wii. Pulling no punches is the PS3 edition of Fight Night Round 4, fittingly making its chart debut in fourth place. Well deserved, we think. At five lurks the sales beast known as Pokemon Platinum.
Making a re-entry is Mario Kart DS - a game first released towards the end of 2005. Meanwhile, the much-less-old The Sims 3 took a massive hit this week, tumbling six slots to end the week in seventh place. If The Sims can't challenge the sales of the top-selling Wii games on a long-term basis, what on earth can? Certainly not Fight Night Round 4 on the Xbox 360, which appears for the second time this week in eighth position. Sneaking back into the charts is the Wii edition of Virtua Tennis 2009 at nine, followed by Rhythm Heaven on the DS at ten.
