UK Charts

Reviews suggest that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is better than most movie tie-ins, so it can’t be bad news to see it arrive in the chart at #2. It’s top of the Xbox 360 and PS3 charts – so far 51% of sales have been on Xbox 360, 39% on PlayStation 3 and the remainder on other formats. Despite what I said last week, it is out on PSP too. Blame Game, not me!

Wii Fit holds onto #1 for the fifth week running, Street Fighter IV is back on the rise up from #25 to #11 (probably because it’s £19.99 at HMV at the moment) while Sonic Unleashed up from #40 to #21. Halo Wars and WWE Legends of Wrestlemania are both back in at #25 and #31 respectively.

There’s a few things going on in the single formats. In the PlayStation 2 chart Coraline goes in at #15, Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce at #5 in the PSP chart, and Rhythm Paradise at #7 and Gardening Mama at #24 in the DS chart. Cooking Mama 2 is at #23, which proves that people like cooking more than doing garden work.

I’m still going to hold out for Drinking Daddy, though.
