The Amazon best-sellers lists for North America, the UK, and Japan continue to fascinate with their ever-changing Top 5 lists. This week sees Just Dance 2 finally dethroned in North America by, you guessed it, another dance game. Michael Jackson: The Experience takes top honors, adding one more notch to the late King of Pop's belt.

Killzone 3 opened strong this week, taking third place in North America and the UK. Meanwhile, Bulletstorm settled in fourth place in America, proving that we have good taste no matter what curve balls the economy throws our way. While we've been gunning for taint-shots and shouting about "dick-tits," the UK returned to its favorite pastime, with FIFA 11 taking second place on the charts.

Lastly, Professor Layton became the first 3DS game in Japan to break into the charts. Other than that, it's business as usual, though we can expect a much different chart next week after the 3DS has had some time to warm up.

North America: 1. Michael Jackson: The Experience (Ubisoft, Wii) 2. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft, Wii) 3. Killzone 3 (Sony, PS3) 4. Bulletstorm (EA, X360) 5. Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition (Nintendo, Wii)

UK: 1. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft, Wii) 2. FIFA 11 (EA, PS3) 3. Killzone 3 (Sony, PS3) 4. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision, 360) 5. Kinect Joy Ride (Microsoft, 360)

Japan: 1. SD Gundam G Generation (Namco, PSP) 2. Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle (Level Five, 3DS) 3. Phantasy Star 2 Infinity (Sega, PSP) 4. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (Capcom, PSP) 5. Catherine (Atlus, PS3)

Joe Donato Video games became an amazing, artful, interactive story-driven medium for me right around when I played Panzer Dragoon Saga on Sega Saturn. Ever since then, I've wanted to be a part of this industry. Somewhere along the line I, possibly foolishly, decided I'd rather write about them than actually make them. So here I am.
