Sega’s Football Manager 2008 – for PeeCees – has knocked FIFA 08 off the top spot and has become Sega’s first number one since Football Manager 2007. The Orange Box has managed to outsell Zelda: Phantom Hourglass – Valve’s collection goes in at #3, while Link’s latest enters at #4, one place above Halo 3. Project Gotham 4 slips from #2 to #6 while Crash of the Titans does the opposite and climbs from #19 to #10. Perhaps we were wrong to write off the bandicoot so soon.
Take 2’s Carnvial: Funfair Games on Wii has done surprisingly well going in at #25, and the Wii version of Rockstar Presents Table Tennis has also made the sports sim make a re-appearance at #37. High School Musical: Makin’ the Cut on DS is also doing well for itself entering at #18, although there are a fair few fallers – Juiced 2 has dropped 13 places from #7 to #20 while skate skates from #12 to #24. Buy it – it’s good!
Thrillville: Off the Rails hasn’t made it into the top 40 but has entered in the lower reaches of the various single format charts. Xbox 360 RPG Eternal Sonata makes a mark at #9 in the 360 chart while Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz goes in at #7 in the PlayStation 2 chart. Is the answer Ghostbusters II?
