UK PS3 charts: The revenge of the FPSs

Submitted by on Wednesday, 11 February 20094 Comments

canted_hybrid2Here we are once again to report on the weekly sales of PS3 games in the United Kingdom. Since we entered 2009, new releases have been scarce, with only Skate 2 and Lord of the Rings: Conquest managing to achieve high sales. As it was expected, people had to make do with what was on the market. As a result, First Person Shooters made a dynamic comeback, with Call of Duty: World at War returning back on top. But CoD: WaW wasn’t the only FPS that made the Top 10.

Find out who outsold who in Chart Track’s UK charts for week ending 7 February 2009…

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

2. FIFA 09 (Electronic Arts)

3. LittleBIGPlanet (Sony Computer Ent.)

4. Resistance 2 (Sony Computer Ent.)

5. Skate 2 (Electronic Arts)

6. The Lord of the Rings: Conquest (Electronic Arts)

7. Grand Theft Auto IV (Take 2)

8. Need For Speed: Undercover (Electronic Arts)

9. Guitar Hero: World Tour (Activision Blizzard)

10. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Activision Blizzard)

This week we don’t find any new surprises in the charts, since – as we mentioned earlier – we had no new releases. It seems that gamers made a U-turn to the past, by choosing to buy titles such as Resistance 2, Grand Theft Auto IV and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Wait, what? Modern Warfare on the Top 10?

As the title implies, FPS titles had their revenge this week, with Resistance 2 climbing to the fourth place and CoD 4 in the 10th. If you include CoD: WaW in the mix, you have 3 First Person Shooters in the Top 10. And Killzone 2 isn’t even out yet..
