Aussie Game Charts: October 26-November 1

Forza 3's second lap of the Aussie game charts proves to be a success.

by

Xbox 360-exclusive racer Forza Motorsport 3 spent its second week at the top of the overall Australian game charts, according to data trackers GfK Australia.

RockStar Games' downloadable content combo disc, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, debuted at number two for the week of October 26 to November 1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves held onto its fourth spot for another week, as did Borderlands for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, in fifth and eighth positions respectively. Interestingly, all next-gen versions of WWE Smackdown vs. RAW 2010 have fallen out of the top 10, with only the PlayStation 2 edition remaining in seventh place. Closing off the week at number 10 was Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for the Nintendo DS.

Also- I wish they actually put the sales figures for each game up. The lists don't really show that much information, surely they have access to the actual figures...

borderlands rocked. forza is a good game, and uncharted is already at 4? and for the second week? well for the 'must have mega super awesome important title game of the year kills everything else' (for ps3 owners) it diddnt stay on the top of the overall charts here for long. i enjoyed it, but took advantage of EB's 7 day return policy and gave it back after i finished it. since then ive wasted countless hours on borderlands on live
