Wii (4) – 360 (4) – DS (2)

Well, there you have it. There’s not much to say except for that it’s a little surprising to see a return to the top 10 by New Super Mario Bros.. For those that don’t remember, that game came out back in May, 2006. Nearly 3 years later it’s still selling quite well.

You sold your PS3, Matt? I had no idea.

I’ll be owning SFIV on both the 360 and PS3, so I’m ready to throw down with anybody out there.

Chris, good point about Mario Kart DS…that game is a beast.

The reality is you need both systems to play all the good games out on the market. Both have their strong and weak points about them.

Wow, the first three slots are held by Wii games, and the Wii system is still doubling the Xbox 360. Mario Kart Wii is always sold out every time we go to Toys R Us, so I’m not surprised.
