Last week Sony said that console-exclusive titles hold back the industry; this week Killzone 3 is #1 in the chart. I’m not sure if that means they’re eating their words right now, but it’s not hard to imagine Sony being pretty chuffed that it beat Bulletstorm.

EA’s slick shooter goes in at #2, with 81% of copies sold on Xbox 360. The arrival of these two big games has naturally pushed a couple of titles out of the top 10 – Test Drive Unlimited 2 takes the biggest punt going from #4 to #11. Marvel Vs Capcom 3 manages to hang in there, although it has dropped from #2 to #7.

Quite a few games have made a swift decent this week – Mario Vs Donkey Kong: Mini Land Mayhem has taken a massive tumble all the way from #8 to #34 while Mario Sports Mix drops from #12 to #21.

In the single formats the brilliantly titled Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together takes #1 in the PSP chart and while Kirby’s Epic Yarn misses out on the top 40 it goes in at #9 in the Wii chart.

Never mind the Nintendo 3DS – these “Super Mario 3-Dees Jellies” are where it’s at. I spotted these for £1 for a bag in Tesco, next to the bags of Haribo and those vile/inedible Tesco Value sweets that even children have learned to avoid.

3D Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong shapes have been individually wrapped in packets for your chewing pleasure, in four sugar-packed flavours – apple, orange, blueberry and strawberry. The flavours aren’t that strong though, and they feel oddly slippery to touch. Still, good for a sugar fix.

This is a video of a man playing the Mario theme tune with bottles and a remote control car. That is all.
