Aussie game charts: September 15-21

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed topples Wii Fit down under.

by

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has managed to do what other new games have failed to do recently: topple Wii Fit. According to data trackers GfK Australia, it was the Xbox 360 version of the game that managed to take out the top spot. The PlayStation 3 version of SWTFU managed to take out second place for the week of September 15-21.

Despite not claiming the top spot, Wii Fit still managed to snag a respectable third spot. Newly released MMO Warhammer Online: The Age of Reckoning, which is one of the first MMOs to feature Aussie servers, debuted at number four. The Wii version of SWTFU, developed by Brisbane-based Krome Studios, also found its way into the charts, grabbing fifth place. The Wii Play and Wii Remote bundle dropped four places from the previous week into the sixth spot. Seventh position went to Mario Kart Wii, while SWTFU on the PlayStation 2 was at number eight. Spore continued to drop, ending up in the ninth place. Last, but not least, Wall-E for the PS2 took out the 10th place.

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

X360 and PS3 #1 and #2... Wii edition #5. Let that be a lesson that if you make it and make it look good it will sell. Forget the waggle and give us some games!
