Aussie game charts: April 9-15

Command & Conquer 3 manoeuvres its way back to the top.

39 Comments

EA has conquered the Australian game charts again with Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars this week. It fell down to third position the week before, as the release of the TMNT movie caused a spike in the tie-in game's sales.

Flagship PlayStation 3 (PS3) games Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm have climbed back into the top five, the only PS3 games to make it into the overall charts (data provided by GfK Australia). Meanwhile, Ricky Ponting International Cricket 2007 in sixth position is still selling well for the PlayStation 2--amidst the action of the real-life ICC Cricket World Cup.

In other charts for the week of April 9 to April 15, the Guitar Hero II bundle continues to rule for the Xbox 360, while the other charts remain for the most part unchanged from the previous week. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues following the release of The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, F.E.A.R. for the PS3, and others.

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