Amazon is an increasingly serious contender for the games retail crown, but its demographic rarely overlaps with other retailers’. Nowhere is this more evident than in the online outlet’s sales charts, where titles like Just Dance 2 reign supreme and Call of Duty: Black Ops sulks somewhere down at the bottom.

GamerInvestments compiled the charts directly from each territory’s portal.
