This was either the week that all of the long-awaited holiday games were released in Australia, or simply the week that customers woke up and started buying them. Evidence to support the former position is the sheer number of new entries to this week's Australian game sales chart -- seven in all -- while you could make a case for the latter by pointing to the way Buzz: the Music Quiz Bundle suddenly rocketed from #9 to #1. As for the rest of the chart, standbys such as the three Nintendogs versions have been completely decimated from the chart, in favor of a mostly new landscape that retains only Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (slipping one place) and Ricky Ponting International Cricket 2005 (slipping a more drastic six). Star Wars Battlefront II did well on both PS2 and Xbox, coming in #2 and #3, while the PC/Mac platform made a comeback with Call of Duty 2, Civilization IV< and Age of Empires III.
