UK Chart

It’s not uncommon for a game to drop ten or so places in a week, but World of Warcraft: Wrath of Lich King has gone all the way from #2 to #34. Gears of War 2 has fallen from #4 to #14 too, while Professor Layton goes from #7 to #18.

Call of Duty: World at War stays on top for the second week running. There are a few new entries as well: Need for Speed Undercover at #4, Tomb Raider: Underworld at #9 and Left 4 Dead at #15. 51 percent of sales of Tomb Raider: Underworld were on PS3, 34 percent on Xbox 360 and the remainder on Wii, PC and DS. It looks like the PlayStation 2 version was canned at the last moment.

Shaun White Snowboarding and ABBA Singstar both enter on their second week of release at #27 and #39 respectively, but we say goodbye to Tom Clancy’s EndWar which has now left the top 40 all together.

The Wii chart has become as painful to look at as the DS chart. What on earth is All Star Cheerleader doing at #10? And Guinness World Records: The Videogame at #11? I blame stupid little girls and idiot parents.

    Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts hasn’t made the top 40 :o(

    That’s because it’s vehicle based shit

    The only people who’d buy Wrath of the Lich King are WoW subscribers, and they’d mostly all buy it on the day of release like starved heroine addicts. So that kind of thing’s bound to happen.
