Looks like the Australians aren't keen on making the transition to the next generation en masse.

Stan_Gable Too bad the Aussie population is only like 1/8th the size of Texas (that's what? like 1 million?) which means these sales make no difference whatsoever (that's a on your very own face elite_gamer) lOl Hmm dude, Australia has more numbers than a mil :P it's about 20 mil and growing fast. And if you think that austraila has small numbers in gaming then you are mistaken. I don't the numbers but I gather it is on the rise and I'll let u know we are big spenders :D on gagets. I think we have the highest rate of mobiles (Cell) phones in the world. And like the UK we love our games and sony :P

ROFL @ outlawauron. Our capital city is Canberra not Sydney (which has a population of over 4 million).

Where is the GC. Why are they putting Xbox sales but not GC ones? They are both technically officially dropped right?

Stan, Elite Gamer is right. SONY rules the games market. When the price of the PS3 goes down even more ppl will buy one and they will rule again. The PS2 was awesome, and the PS3 is gonna be just the same! (Although the Wii is a clever console + the 360 is good, that is gonna happen!)

Kudos to God of War, good product. Kudos to 360, an average games at the top, this is how we see a console is expanding among "casuals". Not so kudos to PS3 - Sony should be more humble, PSP then PS3..., something's wrong... - This is "mass-market", they can't mess with the consumers this far. Very expensive devices, just because ? Nobody buys a Ferrari if it'd consume "rare-to-non-existant gas", right ?, and more when you have a Porsche that rocks our world...

I'm surprised at the number of PC games that are up there in the top 10, but the PS2 is still going strong with God of War 2 topping the charts.

Not as much DS games as I expected, but the PC had a stronger showing this week, actually winning overall. Another crap week for M$ in australia.

Nice, although I was hoping FF3 DS would stay on the overall top 10.
