@Pj1: The reason they can do this is the Nintendo eShop has these charts in it, so they can just check the charts there, it would be MUCH harder to make a Wii VC one.

Hmm, so what were the new UK releases this Thursday?!! It's a bit difficult to spot what the new titles were this week. :( C'mon NintyLife - help us get the low-down on the latest releases (more interesting than the charts TBH).
