It may be no surprise to many, but Grand Theft Auto IV came out as the top dog in sales with Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii coming in second and third respectively.

Of the top five positions, Nintendo grabbed three of the spots. Although the critics of the Wii continue to claim that the game console is just a fad, the sales numbers for the game machine and software seems to show another reality.
