UK PS3 charts: Hadouken!
The last few months, we’ve been talking about Street Fighter IV to such an extent, its tag cloud got as big as LittleBigPlanet’s. Now that it finally hit the stores, all the hype seems to have paid off. The king of beat-em-ups has returned to reclaim his crown. Did it manage to reach the top?
Let’s have a look at Chart Track’s UK charts for week ending 21 February 2009…
1. Street Fighter IV (Capcom)
2. Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection (SEGA)
3. Call of Duty: World at War (Activision Blizzard)
4. LittleBIGPlanet (Sony Computer Ent.)
5. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (Warner Bros. Interactive)
6. FIFA 09 (Electronic Arts)
7. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Activision Blizzard)
8. Grand Theft Auto IV (Take 2)
9. Resistance 2 (Sony Computer Ent.)
10. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand (THQ)
So yes, Street Fighter IV is first and it should remain there until man walks on Venus (is that even possible?)! Seriously though, SF IV is a masterpiece that deserves to sell at least 15 million copies (still kidding, obviously).
In the second place we find a newcomer. For those of you not familiar with the game, the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection includes 40 classic SEGA titles, all presented in HD resolution. It seems that consumers felt a little nostalgic and didn’t forget to buy this marvellous collection.
The rest of the Top 10 remains – more or less – the same, except one more new addition. 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand debuted in the 10th place, making us worry about the future of the industry. Come on! Who buys a game that takes place in two war-tornÂ middle east countries, with 50 cent – and his homies – on a mission to collect payment from a crime cartel boss?
