The saying goes, "What goes up must come down." However, in the case of New Super Mario Bros., it goes back up again. The plucky DS game has once again topped the latest console-game sales rankings from Bestbuy.com. During the week of September 5-11, it edged out the previous week's champion, THQ's Saints Row (Xbox 360), which now finds itself parked in fifth place.

New Super Mario Bros. also edged out Madden NFL 07, the latest installment in the top sports franchise of all time. The PlayStation 2 edition of the game was relegated to the number-two slot, just in front of the Xbox 360 version. No other versions of Madden made it into the top 10, although another Electronic Arts sports title, NASCAR 07 (PlayStation 2), raced into sixth place.

Another new entrant on the list was LucasArts' Lego Star Wars: The Original Trilogy for the PlayStation 2 (ninth). The rest of the top 10, was all about the DS. Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day stayed strong in fourth, Mario Kart DS cruised along in seventh, Star Fox Command ruled eighth place, and Tetris DS was tail-end Charlie in 10th.
