N denotes a new entry

No surprises this week as the blue bomber we all know and love steals #1. People were commenting that Mega Man 9 had made it to the top spot in the later hours of Monday, amazing scenes!

The same cannot be said for Plättchen: Twist 'n' Paint, despite a price drop from the 1500 European price to 1000 Wii points for North America, it seems no one is biting! The poor reviews so far can’t have helped its fortunes!

Even sadder than that, Potpourrii has failed to enter the chart and it has been out for over a week now. It just goes to show that not every puzzler will flourish on WiiWare. Better luck next week, it would be a shame to not see it on the charts if only for a short while.

Strong Bad episode 2 has failed to make the impact that the first in the series did as so far it has only reached #3, who would have thought that My Aquarium would be such a winner?

We can finally breathe a collective sigh of relief and wave goodbye to the dismal SPOGS Racing this week as it drops off the charts. If only Pong Toss would suffer a similar fate!

As always have your say on this week’s findings below.
