Aussie game charts: November 26-December 2

It's-a me, Mario!

22 Comments

Everybody's favourite Italian plumber Mario has blasted his way to number one in the overall Australian game chart, according to data trackers GfK Australia.

Need for Speed ProStreet for the PlayStation 2 climbed three spots from last week, moving into second place on the overall charts, though the Xbox 360 version of the same game only made it to number six. WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 on the PlayStation 2, which had spent the previous two weeks on top of the chart, fell to third spot. More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain? on the Nintendo DS continues to consistently make it into the overall charts and this week took out the eighth position. The Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree bundle, which comes with an extra Wii Remote, finished off the week at number 10 for the week of November 26 to December 2.

Despite all of its pizzazz, Mass Effect failed to break into the top 10 overall game chart this week, only making it to number six on the Xbox 360-specific chart.
