UK PS3 charts: CoD WaW leads the race
Even though CoD WaW sales fell 51%, it managed to maintain the first place of the British charts, according to Chart Track. With so many games coming out this period, it’s natural to see many ups and downs in games sales. The battle is harsh and only the strongest survive.
So without further delays, here are Chart Track’s UK charts for week ending November 22nd.
Click through to see the Top 10…
1. Call of Duty: World at War (Activision Blizzard)
2. Need For Speed: Undercover (Electronic Arts)
3. Tomb Raider: Underworld (Eidos)
4. LittleBIGPlanet (Sony Computer Ent.)
5. FIFA 09 (Electronic Arts)
6. Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (KONAMI)
7. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift (Sony Computer Ent.)
8. Guitar Hero: World Tour (Activision Blizzard)
9. Mirror’s Edge (Electronic Arts)
10. Midnight Club: Los Angeles (Take 2)
We already mentioned that CoD WaW is in first place, but Undercover second? I mean, COME ON! We all know it SUCKS, why the high sales? Stop buying it people!
In the third place, we meet Ms. Lara. If you consider that 51% of Underworld sales come from the PS3 version, it makes sense. What does surprise us is the loyalty to the Tomb Raider franchise people seem to have. Although the game is quite mediocre, people tend to buy it. Even more surprising is the fact that the PS3 version is selling better. Xbox 360 had an exclusive demo and MS made a deal with Eidos for future DLC, but people still want to play Lara on their PS3.
FIFA 09 remains the king of footie this year, with PES 2009 following. Without a doubt, EA did a great job with the latest instalment of FIFA. They deserve to be kings this year.
The absence of Rock Band 2 in Europe seems to have had a positive impact on Activision’s Guitar Hero: World Tour, since it’s now 8th.
At 9th place, we have DICE’s gem Mirror’s Edge. It is quite disappointing to see such marvellous games not selling as expected. Maybe if you stopped buying NFS Undercover, Mirror’s Edge might got the credit it deserves.
Finally, MIdnight Club: Los Angeles completes the top 10. It is known that MC: LA is way better than this year’s NFS. For the third time, STOP BUYING NFS UNDERCOVER. If you want an arcade racer, buy Midnight Club. If you just have money to spare, give Mirror’s Edge a chance.
