Aussie game charts: March 5-11

Final Fantasy XII holds onto top spot; GRAW2 debuts in fifth place.


Final Fantasy XII

Final Fantasy XII continued its strong run in Australia this week, taking out the number one position in the latest game sales charts.

The newest entry in the long-running role-playing series has now been in the top spot for two weeks in a row, holding off The Sims 2: Seasons, which scored second position, according to data trackers GfK Australia.

Two new titles also cracked the overall top 10 this week. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for the Xbox 360 had the stronger debut, snaring fifth position. Sonic and the Secret Rings for the Nintendo Wii landed in ninth spot.

Longtime top 10 entrant World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade looks to be slowly slipping out of the big leagues, falling to 10th this week after being fifth the previous week.
