Mario Reigns Supreme

According to the console sales chart, the New Super Mario Brothers for the Nintendo DS took first place from Sony's Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Second through fifth places on the chart were as follows; Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day, Big Brain academy, and Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow respectively. Castlevania was not even in the top ten last week, but somehow has shot up to fourth place. If anyone has hints as to why, please let us know.

Another DS title that climbed up the charts was the extremely fun Mario Kart DS, sitting at number seven. The other five spots were 2006 FIFA World Cup for both PS2 and Xbox, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Hitman: Blood Money, and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

It seems that DS titles are still selling strongly and have maintained their presence in the United States as well as Japan. It is great to see how people have been responding to the DS. In my opinion, it is one of the best systems ever and it's only going to get better. A strong lineup of games steadily coming out marks another great year for Nintendo's DS.
