The week of January 3-9 was the first fully tracked seven-day sales period of the new year when it came to game sales in Australia, and it also saw 2010’s first triple-A titles get released. Interestingly, both failed to make it into the top five. Instead, Darksiders for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 took out the eighth and ninth places, respectively, while Bayonetta for the 360 landed at number 10.

The top spot Down Under went to Mario Kart Wii. Nintendo also holds the next four spots, with the likes of Wii Fit Plus and New Super Mario Bros. Wii filling the ranks. The only non-Nintendo and non-new release game to make it into the charts was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which took out the sixth and seventh spots, respectively.

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