Major retailer Amazon has released a list of its top-selling items in the video game category for 2009, with Wii hardware and software dominating the Top 10 for the year thus far.

According to the current listing through December 2009, the top four best-selling game-related items - whether consoles, accessories or games - are all Wii related hardware.

Specifically, the Wii hardware bundle itself is in top spot for the year from the U.S. version of the online retailer's store, followed by extra Wii controllers, the standalone Wii MotionPlus add-on, and the Wii Nunchuk remote add-on.

The top-selling game on the list is Nintendo's own New Super Mario Bros. Wii, at No. 5 on the overall list, followed by Wii Fit Plus and the Wii Balance Board and the MotionPlus-bundled Wii Sports Resort.

The first non-Nintendo title in the Top 10 is Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Xbox 360, at No.9, with another Nintendo-created title, Mario Kart Wii, rounding out the top ten.

A full list of the Top 20 most-purchased game hardware/software and beyond is available via Amazon's Best-Selling Game products page.
