Super Smash Brothers Brawl conquering Europe

Today, Media-Control Gfk International has blessed gameindustry.biz with some interesting sales figures from both Spain and Germany. As it ends up, Super Smash Brothers Brawl for the Wii has extended its quest for world sales domination into both countries by taking the number one spot. The data below is for the week ending on June 22.

Spain

  1. Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii)
  2. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
  3. Wii Play (Wii)
  4. Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What to Eat? (DS)
  5. Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3)
  6. Top Spin 3 (PS3)
  7. Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core (PSP)

  10. The Sims 2 deluxe (PC)

Germany

  1. Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii)
  2. Mario Kart Wii (Wii)
  3. Battlefield Bad Company (PS3)
  4. The Sims 2: Ikea Home Stuff (PC)

If you take a close look at the data, it appears that Germans would much rather buy furniture in the Sims, than play Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Perhaps they plan on virtually sitting down while watching all of the cut-scenes in MGS4?
