15 Comments

The newest karaoke game in Sony's popular SingStar franchise, SingStar '90s, has spent its second week at the top of the Australian game charts according to data trackers GfK.

Nintendo did well for the week ending August 13-19, with both the Diamond and Pearl versions of Pokémon for the DS appearing in the overall game charts alongside Dr Kawashima's Brain Training games. World of Warcraft has made a return to the overall top 10, taking out the ninth spot after being absent from the list for more than a month. EA's movie tie-in game Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix managed to squeeze its way into to the charts, taking out the 10th position.

Mario Party 8 retains its number one sales ranking for the Nintendo Wii for another week, while Rayman Raving Rabbids has climbed up to the number two spot after failing to make the list in last week's sales figures.
