UK PS3 charts: We have a newcomer
Remember last week’s charts? Well, guess what; things haven’t changed that much since last week! Call of Duty: World at War is still leading the pack. Treyarch did one hell of a good job in this fifth instalment in the CoD series. They managed to keep the game quality high and make WaW a worthy successor to Infinity Ward’s CoD 4.
But let’s see Chart Track’s UK Charts for week ending 29 November 2008…
1. Call of Duty: World at War (Activision Blizzard)
2. Resistance 2 (Sony Computer Ent.)
3. Need For Speed: Undercover (Electronic Arts)
4. FIFA 09 (Electronic Arts)
5. Tomb Raider: Underworld (Eidos)
6. LittleBIGPlanet (Sony Computer Ent.)
7. Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (KONAMI)
8. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift (Sony Computer Ent.)
9. Fallout 3 (Bethesda Softworks)
10. Midnight Club: Los Angeles (Take 2)
It seems that the world is hungry for FPS games, since Resistance 2 came in all guns blazing to take the second place from NFS Undercover. But where is Undercover (aka abomination) this week? Where else; third!
I thought that I would never have to say that phrase again, but you people – and your buying habits – give me no choice. STOP FREAKING BUYING NFS UNDERCOVER!!! It’s not a good game. It is just a Most Wanted running on HD. No improvements to be seen; just an updated car roster. And still you keep spending your money on such a “faulty” product..
But let’s put all these aside and continue analyzing this week’s Top 10. FIFA 09 is doing even better and now holds the fourth place. Lara and her Underworld adventures are now fifth; the guys at Eidos and Crystal Dynamics must be opening champagne, since their game is selling exceptionally well.
The most innovative game of the 7th gaming generation, LittleBIGPlanet, fell two places. Am I the only one finding this quite ironic? How can a masterpiece like LittleBIGPlanet be sixth, the moment that NFS is third? I mean come on!
Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 continues its downfall. Although it’s in the seventh place so something tells me that it’s not going to be there for too long. Well, it certainly won’t be missed.
Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, Fallout 3 and Midnight Club: Los Angeles complete the list. As you may have noticed, Mirror’s Edge is missing out this week. It sickens me to see such a great game not flying off the shelves, but at least Fallout 3 covers the emptiness.
