Aussie game charts: April 9-15

Command & Conquer 3 manoeuvres its way back to the top.

EA has conquered the Australian game charts again with Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars this week. It fell down to third position the week before, as the release of the TMNT movie caused a spike in the tie-in game's sales.

Flagship PlayStation 3 (PS3) games Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm have climbed back into the top five, the only PS3 games to make it into the overall charts (data provided by GfK Australia). Meanwhile, Ricky Ponting International Cricket 2007 in sixth position is still selling well for the PlayStation 2--amidst the action of the real-life ICC Cricket World Cup.

In other charts for the week of April 9 to April 15, the Guitar Hero II bundle continues to rule for the Xbox 360, while the other charts remain for the most part unchanged from the previous week. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues following the release of The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, F.E.A.R. for the PS3, and others.

All sales stats, including console-by-console breakdowns, can be found below:

Cowabunga! Glad to see TMNT still has strong sale. Man, the game is soo hard, it's impossible to get A+ in every stages. I want to slap developers right on their faces, remind them that they were making game for kids :P

I'm not saying Australia is irrelevant, that would be stupid. What I am saying is that a weekly sales chart is irrelevant, one from australia on top of that.

choasgod : how did u make that statistics (PS3 buys 3x and 360 2x ???) do you realize that 360 has > 150 titles ??!! While PS3-only gamers have (for real) 2 gamers to choose from, 360 and eccletic gamers have a looooot more.

Looks like PS3 is doing quite well ... 2 spots in the top 10 ... Ps2 is holding its own with 3 spots ... 360 is present with 1 stop ... PC and DS are always their ... but Wii is missing .. which is kinda dissapointig bcause selling alot of hardware is one thing - but 6 milion Wii's mean jack all is the avg. PS3 owners buys 3x the games ... or the avg. 360 owner buys 2x the games ...

I thought that VF5 would be on the top 10 of PS3 games? Oh well, maybe it isn't out in Australia yet?

"Having the 3# and 4# spot is not dominating." The #1 and #2 games were just recently released. I would agree that the PS is doing very well Down Under.

Well Montrealien, there are enough of us Aussies to warrant GS to warrant us having our own GS server. The problem recently is there have barely been any new games released, including the Wii. Pokemon is out in June so that will be number 1 then.

This is what is would look like if we had the weekly sale chart for the state of New York reported to us every week, why does gamespot feel the need to post this useless info?

Australia seems to be in road for winning the real life Cricket World Cup. No wonder the game is in the top 10.

Bombed? You mean fastest selling console in Australian gaming history? Don't want to sound like a fanboy, but as an Australian I can safely say that the games charts here are mostly horrible.

HaHa. I am so happy the Wii seems to have bombed there. Just great news from Oz each week. I love it! Keep it coming, maybe soon there will be a no wii month for the US! PS360 baby!

"PS is dominating in Aussie. no surprise there." Having the 3# and 4# spot is not dominating.

What shocks me the most is that there are 5 'The Sim's' games in the PC chart.
