Aussie game charts: December 3-December 9

Super Mario Galaxy continues to rule the Australian game charts.

It has been three weeks since Mario hit the shelves, and the Wii title Super Mario Galaxy is showing no signs of slowing down. The game has again taken the number one spot in the overall Australian game chart according to data trackers GfK Australia.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games climbed five positions, claiming second spot for the week of December 3-December 9, while on the flip-side, the PlayStation 2 version of WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 fell four spots to number six overall. Activision finished off the week strong with two separate titles taking out the top spot--Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock bundle for the PS2 in ninth and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 10th place on the Xbox 360.

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

I love that the charts are dominated by the consoles (Wii & PS2) and handheld (DS) that are all outclassed in technical specs by their rivals. Proof positive that it's not all about graphics...

The full-priced chart is full of wii, DS and ps2 games. nice to see the dear ps2 has more life in it than even the 360 and the ps3. even with the current gen consoles sitting in my room, the one i play most is still the last gen ps2 :-P, thanks to DBZ -BT3 and GOW2

SMG deserves to be on top and all those who said Mario & Sonic will fail, can eat their words.
