After a four week break, LEGO Indiana Jones
has made it back to Number 1, climbing up one spot from Number 2. This marks the seventh consecutive week since launch that Indy has hung around the Top 10.
The release of Wall-E
in the cinemas has benefited THQ's tie-in, with the game having climbed an impressive 14 places to Number 2 and found itself just 46 sales away from the Number 1 spot.
To make room at the top Nintendo’s Wii Fit
has dropped a couple of spots to Number 3, held up there by a solid framework of other Nintendo titles. Below it is Wii Play
, which has climbed three places to Number 4. Below that is Super Smash Bros. Brawl
, down two places to Number 5. Below that
is Mario Kart Wii
, which climbs six places to Number 6 (got to love the synchronicity).
We don't have a Nintendo title at Number 7, but it almost might as well be. SEGA's Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games
is sat there, up three places. SPOnG's relieved every week that we see the game in the Top 10 after our worlds were turned upside down a few weeks ago by it dropping out
. The milk turning to blood we could handle, but the water running uphill unnerved us somewhat.
SEGA's other Olympic tie-in doesn't fare so well, with Beijing 2008
dropping six places to Number 14. There might be a lesson to be learned there...
Activision’s Guitar Hero: On Tour
– which is exclusive to the DS – is denied a Top 10 place in its début week, but only by 57 sales. It sits at Number 11.
Ubisoft's Sports Party
for the Wii is this week's biggest climber, tootling up 16 places to Number 13.
Next week watch out for the DS release of Racedriver: GRID
and Buzz! Quiz Master
on the PSP making modest dents.
