Konami does a little celebratory dance today, following the news of PES 2008?s
second week at the top of the All Formats Video Game Chart, shifting over twice the amount of copies as EA?s rival FIFA ?08
, which sits at No.2 this week.
EA's The Simpsons Game
debuts at No.3 ? with healthiest sales on PS2. THQ?s movie cash/tie-in, Ratatouille
(see how we don't spell it out phonetically for you, as if you were some kind of in-bred, cow-worrier?) crawls up a place to No.4. Bungie?s awesome Halo 3
, clambers back up to No.5 on the back of some strong retailer bundles. Don't think it's that awesome? Read our review, right over here
New releases this week include Sierra's twitch-shooter TimeShift
at No.24 and EA's PC bleakly, well, bleak Hellgate: London
Next week is when things really start to heat up in the run-up to Christmas 2007 with the releases of Call of Duty 4
, WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008
, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
and Gears of War
