UK PS3 charts: Nothing can stop WaW

Submitted by on Tuesday, 9 December 2008No Comment

The feeling of ‘deja vu’ is in the air, since this is the fourth consecutive week Call of Duty: World at War remains in the top of the charts.

Activision has hit the jackpot with their “one CoD per year” tactic. The next Call of Duty Modern Warfare title is due to visit us in Fall 2009.

Here at PS3 Attitude Towers we are ok with that “fifalization” of the franchise, as far as they keep producing innovative quality games.

But let’s see Chart Track’s UK Charts for week ending 6 December 2008…

1. Call of Duty: World at War (Activision Blizzard)

2. Resistance 2 (Sony Computer Ent.)

3. LittleBIGPlanet (Sony Computer Ent.)

4. FIFA 09 (Electronic Arts)

5. Need For Speed: Undercover (Electronic Arts)

6. Tomb Raider: Underworld (Eidos)

7. Fallout 3 (Bethesda Softworks)

8. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift (Sony Computer Ent.)

9. Prince of Persia (Ubisoft)

10. Grand Theft Auto IV (Take 2)

The heat for FPS games seems to be going strong, since Resistance 2 remains at second place.  Without a doubt, Insomniac’s gem deserves to be there – if not first -.

A nice and optimistic surprise was to see that LittleBIGPlanet now holds the third place in the charts. Let’s all hope its sales numbers keep increasing.

In the fourth, fifth and sixth place we find the now “classic” trio of FIFA 09, Need for Speed: Undercover and Tomb Raider Underworld. We decided not to further comment on these games, since we’ve been talking about them the past three weeks.

In seventh place we find last week’s newcomer Fallout 3. Bethesda’s epic creation seems to be doing quite good. The question that arouses is: why now? Well, the way we see it, most consumers decide to leave big in length games for periods with increased free time. A game like Fallout 3 demands at least 25 hours to be completed. Not everyone has this amount of free time to devote to a game; that’s why they decide to play them during holiday seasons.

Motorstorm: Pacific Rift remained steady at 8th place. In this week’s newcomers, we find the long-awaited Prince of Persia. Keeping in mind that this latest instalment in the PoP franchise was made available to the public just last Friday, the 9th place seems ideal. We shall see what the new Prince will manage to achieve in next week’s charts.

In 10th place, we spot one of our all-time-favourite games. Grand Theft Auto IV came out of nowhere to take the 10th place. This further proves our “lengthy games” theory. As strange it may sound, there are people out there that haven’t – yet – tasted the epicness of GTA IV.
