What were the best-selling games in America, Japan, and Europe the past week? Thanks to Amazon online sales data here are the games that are the hottest. Think of it as a games weather report.

What follows is a listing of the Top 10 bestsellers per region, for all systems combined.

North America’s Top 10 Games:

1. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Xbox 360)
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops (PS3)
3. Just Dance 2 (Wii)
4. Kinect Sports (Xbox 360 Kinect)
5. Dance Central (Xbox 360 Kinect)
6. Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii)

Japan’s Top 10 Games:

I guesstimate Capcom have sold 3.7 million copies of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd on PSP by this week on sale, in Japan alone. Expect this to keep selling for a long long time, as it becomes apparent from this video the fans really get into the game! Where’s that Western release date Capcom?
