With so many big titles coming out in the last few weeks, it's not too surprising to see the number one position in the overall game charts constantly change hands. Last week, Microsoft's simulation racer Forza Motorsport 3 stormed into the pole position at number one, according to data trackers GfK Australia.

The previous week's top dog, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, didn't fare too well, dropping all the way down to number four, for the week of October 19-25. During its first week of sales, Borderlands on the Xbox 360 managed to make it into the fifth spot, while the PlayStation 3 version also made it into the top 10, but managed to snag only eighth place. The SmackDown vs. RAW series has always been a popular sporting title down under, but interestingly it was the PlayStation 2 version of SVR 2010 that ranked the highest at number six. The only next-gen version of THQ's popular wrestling series was on the PS3, which took out the final 10th spot.
