Aussie consumers gave a lot of love to Nintendo games last week. Mario Kart--which had been number one for the past two weeks--was dethroned in favour of another House of Mario favourite, the Wii Fit Plus bundle, at the top of the Australian sales charts, according to data trackers GfK Australia.

The games that make up the rest of the game charts this week remains the same as the previous week, albeit slightly shuffled around. Darksiders on the PlayStation 3 moved down to number nine, paving the way for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 to climb up into the eighth and sixth spots, respectively. The only games that didn't change spots were Just Dance at number seven and Army of Two: The 40th Day closing off the week at number 10.
