Well, with a couple of big titles being released this week, I would have expected at least one of them to take the top spot. But Fifa World Cup is holding on tight. Alan Wake and Lost Planet 2 were the contenders, but they just didn’t quite make it. At least we can relax in the knowledge that these two titles have out sold Just Dance.
Call of Duty: World at War has made it back into the chart, possibly on the back of the new CoD game being announced? It is also nice to see Final Fantasy XIII rising the charts still. This is most likely due to the promotion that was run in a UK video game store chain recently which also saw Aliens Vs Predator for a good price. Nier is on special this week, so it will be interesting to see if that arrives back in the charts.
Next week offers the hugely anticipated Red Dead Redemption, with Blur, Alpha Protocol and UFC Undisputed 2010 the week after. Will any of these dethrone the Fifa World Cup game before the actual tournament begins?
More charts next week.
