The Easter weekend has come and gone and left Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas 2
from Ubisoft at the top of the All Formats Charts.Vegas 2
's grabbing of the top spot has given Ubisoft its first All Formats Number 1 of the year and the Tom Clancy franchise the fifth Number 1 of its lifetime. It joins Splinter Cell
, Pandora Tomorrow
and GRAW 2
. 77% of the game's sales go to the Xbox 360, while the PS3 makes up the rest. The 360 version sells 3.6 as many times as the first Rainbow Six Vegas
game did on that format.
Got time for some more little factoids about Rainbow Six Vegas 2
? Good, because it's also the fourth fastest selling 360 game in the UK... ever, coming in behind Halo 3
, Call of Duty 4
and Assassin's Creed
The tactical shooter's climb to the top means that SEGA's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
is relegated to Number 2, despite a 60% jump in sales.
Activision nabs the next two spots, with CoD4
climbing two spots from Number 5 to Number 3, while Guitar Hero III
is up from Number 7 to Number 4.
Electronic Arts' Army of Two
is the only Top 10 game to lose sales, dropping from Number 2 all the way down to Number 8. SEGA manages to serve up a second Top 10 entry, sneaking in at Number 10 with SEGA Superstars Tennis
The release of the Wii version of CSI: Hard Evidence
sees a re-entry for Ubisoft's TV tie-in, pushing it back into the Top 40 at Number 24. Just behind it is a first Chart appearance (in its second week of release) for Vivendis' The Spiderwick Chronicles
at Number 26.
Easter promotions give both 505 Games' Cooking Mama
and Sony's Resistance: Fall of Man
reappearences in the Top 40, with the titles grabbing Numbers 29 and 30 respectively.
In next week's Charts keep an eye out for Konami's PES 2008
on the Wii, SEGA's Football Manager 2008
on the 360, God of War: Chains of Olympus
on the PSP, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
for the PS3, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops +
for the PSP and House of the Dead 2 & 3: Return
on the Wii. Yes, it looks like no one told many of the major games publishers that Easter already happened.
