Fourth time's a charm it would seem, looking at this week's charts. It's charming
at least, if you're SEGA that is. Sonic and Mario have raced the devil and won, putting Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Game
s at Number 1 for the fourth time since its release.
The DS can be thanked for the duo's return to the top, with the recently released handheld version accounting for a whopping 93% of the game's sales.
SEGA's leap to the top spot like a high jumper with springs on his(/her – girls can jump too) feet, means that Capcom's Devil May Cry 4
is relegated to Number 2. Beneath it, Disney's Turok
holds fast at Number 3.
Activision’s Call of Duty 4
manages to climb three places back into the Top 5, resting at Number 4. Wii Play once again rounds out the Top 5.
After last week's slew of new releases
, there are only two new entries into the Top 40 today. Midway's Game Party
for the Wii debuts at Number 15, while 505 Games' Cooking Mama 2
for the DS enters the Charts at Number 33.
Next week, watch out for Unreal Tournament 3
on the PS3, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity
for the Wii and PS2, Jumper
and FIFA Street 3
