The UK Charts are in for the week thanks to GfK Chart-Track, and all signs show no stopping of Modern Warfare 2, which despite an 11% decline in sales from last week is sitting at #1 for the fifth week running. Activision?s war game is a hot contender for the Christmas #1.
Hot on its tail this week however is Wii Sports Resort
, which has shot up from 5th place to 2nd and gained 17% in sales. Assassin?s Creed II
hangs tight in third, with fewer games being sold (-3%). Like its sporty brother, Wii Fit Plus
(+11%) is having something of a resurgence to #4 - the shake-up tackles FIFA 10
(-15%) to fifth position.
Once on top of the world, New Super Mario Bros. Wii
(-5%) is sliding down the charts to #6, but other titles he?s featuring in are holding their own, with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games
(+15%) and Mario Kart Wii
(+18%) at 7 and 10 respectively. Microsoft?s Forza Motorsport 3
sticks to ninth but gains 15% in sales.
The big surprise is Ubisoft?s Just Dance
, which hits #8 but came all the way from position 30! The jump represents an astronomical 274% increase in sales. Lord knows the reasoning for it all - perhaps worries of dancing like a pro at the office Christmas party is encouraging all the sales.
Next week we should have the results of the Christmas #1. Who?s taking bets?
