Aussie game charts: January 26-February 1

Wii Fit's addiction to being number one continues.

Everyone's favourite fitness game, Wii Fit, continues to hold on to the number-one spot down under, according to data trackers GfK Australia.

Maintaining its position from the previous week, Mario Kart Wii is in second place for the week of January 26 to February 1. Dr Kawashima's Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain has jumped one from the previous week, taking out the third spot. The Guitar Hero World Tour superbundle for the Wii can be found in fourth, whereas its Xbox 360 cousin is a little lower in the list at number six. It's hard to say if all the excitement from the Australian Open got people hungry for some tennis action, but it is extremely curious that 2K's Top Spin 3 has come out of left field to take the fifth spot. After a long hiatus, Mario's secret fight club--Super Smash Bros. Brawl--returns to the charts, taking out seventh place. The eighth position goes to SingStar ABBA, which was revealed to have sold more than 90,000 units in Australia alone in the six weeks leading up to Christmas. Skate 2 dropped significantly from last week, scraping in at number nine. The last game to make it into the charts is More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain at number 10.

Oops with my "Yay! First comment." People are definetly not wasting their money at all, It'll be good if you people can convince them not to buy the wii games.

Yay! First comment. As usual Nintendo dominates the charts. It doesn't look to be challenge so far... however Q1 does have some good games that could challenge Nintendo. Also maybe some different games are going to be released soon that are from Nintendo. Empire:Total war, Pokemon Platinum, Pikimin 3 and many more games. I do believe that Wii fit, Wii Play (which oddly isn't in the top 10) and Mario Kart will be in that top 10 but MAYBE not in the top 3. It'll be interesting...mmmm....

The Australian Open must have been the reason for Top Spin sales, i don't think i have even seen it in the top 10 for the Wii let alone 5th overall on the charts.
