App store category charts?

Is it possible to view the charts for individual game categories in iTunes or on the device itself. For example view the top 200 Games in the Arcade category?

I know this is possible using 3rd party websites but was wondering if Apple themselves offer this feature.

The thing is that, iTunes shows only the charts in your country!If you access the Arcade category in iTunes, you will see the top 200 apps in that category but in Iceland or in whatever country your account is registered .I suggest a 3rd party website, they are far better!

I must have missed it somewhere but where do you select, for example, the Arcade category?

Under App Store in iTunes I can only see the top level categories (Books/Education/Games/Weather etc.)

You click the games category, and you scroll down, you should see more games categories on the right!
