Firstly, let me apologise for the lateness of the charts this week. This can be blamed on the bank holiday and birthday celebrations. My apologies.
A week of few surprises. The FIFA World Cup game goes straight in at number one, with Super Street Fighter IV at two. Just Dance at number three? Well, I have resigned myself to the fact that the UK gaming public like to dance.
The release of Avatar on DVD has no doubt helped the video game to rise through the charts. I would have expected Iron Man 2 to enter the chart a bit higher, but I guess the movie hype is building, so let’s see what happens next week. One interesting observation is that, for the first time since launch, Pokemon Heartgold is higher than Pokemon Soulsilver. I am not sure what that means, but it is interesting.
More charts next week.
