Aussie game charts: October 22-October 28

Master Chief continues his reign over Aussie gamers; The Orange Box debuts strongly.


Halo 3

Halo 3 continues to sell strongly down under, evidenced by the fact that it has spent another week at the top of the overall Australian game charts, according to data trackers GfK Australia.

The critically acclaimed The Orange Box on the Xbox 360 debuted at number three for the week of October 22-October 28. The PC version also made it into the charts at number nine. Australia's fascination with SingStar continues, with SingStar R&B taking out fourth spot with less than a week at retail under its belt. THQ's kid-friendly Drawn to Life for the Nintendo DS fell three places to sixth place. FIFA Soccer 08 for the PlayStation 2 finished off the week at number 10.

In other charts news, Sony's camera-card game Eye of Judgment managed to take out seventh place in the PlayStation 3-specific chart.
