Games Weather Report Week 5
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. Just Dance 2 (Wii)
2. Zumba Fitness (Wii)
3. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Xbox 360)
4. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii)
5. Just Dance Kids (Wii)
6. Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board (Wii)
7. Call of Duty: Black Ops (PS3)
8. Michael Jackson The Experience (Wii)
9. Kinect Sports (Xbox 360 Kinect)
10. Kinect Adventures! with Kinect Sensor (Xbox 360 Kinect)

Pretty much the same list as the past month, just with more exercise games. Ubisoft strikes again with another casual game everyone and their family can enjoy. It’s no wonder Just Dance 2 keeps topping the charts. Here’s the commercial depicting a 100% realistic dance scenario for your livingroom.

Japan’s Top 10 Games:

1. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (PSP)
2. Ace Attorney 2 – Limited Edition (DS)
3. Shape Boxing 2: Wii de Enjoy Diet! (Wii)
4. Macross Triangle Frontier – Limited Edition (PSP)
5. My Little Sister Can’t Possibly Be This Cute (PSP)

7. Valkyria Chronicles 3 (PSP)
8. Dragon Age: Origins (PS3)
9. Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii)
10. The Last Story (Wii)

I guesstimate Capcom has sold, in Japan alone, over 4.1 million copies of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd on PSP at this time. Expect this to keep selling for a long long time, as it becomes apparent from this video the fans really get into the game! Still no word on a Western release date from Capcom.

Europe’s Top 10 Games:

1. Just Dance 2 (Wii)
2. Just Dance (Wii)
3. Art Academy: Learn Painting and Drawing Techniques with Step-by-Step Training (DS)

7. Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board (Wii)
8. Football Manager 2011 (PC)
9. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Xbox 360)
10. Let’s Draw! (DS)

To recap the top games per system: Just Dance 2 returns to star on the Wii chart. Call of Duty: Black Ops returns on the PS3 & Xbox 360 charts. DC Universe Online remains #1 on the PC chart. New Super Mario Bros. returns to first place on the DS chart. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep stays on top of the PSP chart. And lastly, Kingdom Hearts II keeps returning on the PS2 chart.
