Aussie game charts: April 23-29

TMNT takes top spot; Oblivion for PS3 debuts at fourth position.

T-U-R-T-L-E power reigned supreme in Australia last week, with the latest PlayStation 2 adventures of Donatello and the gang taking the top spot in the overall Australian game charts for the week of April 23 to April 29.

TMNT took the number-one spot from Diddy Kong Racing for the Nintendo DS, which slipped back a place to land in second position, according to data trackers GfK Australia. Nintendo games had a strong showing in the overall top 10, with five entrants including Sonic and the Secret Rings and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Wii, and Bratz: Forever Diamondz and Animal Crossing: Wild World for the Nintendo DS.

The PlayStation 3 port of last year's role-playing game hit The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion had a strong debut Down Under, coming in at fourth spot in the overall charts. Two other PS3 games made the top 10--MotorStorm and Resistance: Fall of Man.
