Gamasutra's weekly column, "Saling The World", covers the top five sellers for every available platform in the United States, Japan, and Europe, providing an important update of sales patterns worldwide.

This week's charts, with data taken from February 18th, 2010, find Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth topping Nintendo DS sales in the United States, as Aliens vs. Predator leads across multiple platforms in the UK.

Data for "Saling The World" comes courtesy of the public sales information on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.co.jp, with sales split out for each platform and territory, and pre-orders disregarded. This results in a true sense of what games are selling worldwide on the real-time updated service, as follows:

Nintendo Wii
North America: 1. Just Dance (Ubisoft), 2. Walk It Out! (Konami), 3. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Nintendo), 4. Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board (Nintendo), 5. Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo).

Japan: 1. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Nintendo), 2. Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board (Nintendo), 3. Zangeki no Reginleiv (Nintendo), 4. Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo), 5. Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo).

UK: 1. Just Dance (Ubisoft), 2. Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board (Nintendo), 3. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (Sega), 4. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Nintendo), 5. Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo).

Ubisoft's Just Dance again leads weekly Wii software sales in the United States and the UK, and has topped platform sales in both regions over the past month.
