Nintendo owns European sales charts

The last time we talked Spain and Germany sales charts, we found that Super Smash Brothers Brawl had toppled Metal Gear Solid 4 for the top spot. The week ending on July 13 shows Nintendo’s conquering of Europe has reached a nearly impossible level. The charts, according to gamesindustry.biz, reveal that not only has Snake disappeared from the German list, but so has every other game that doesn’t run on a Wii or Nintendo DS. The Spanish are trying to diversify their portfolio still, but we’re witnessing a shift down from the only two titles on their top ten that isn’t a Nintendo software.

  1. Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii)
  2. Wii Play (Wii)
