The law of gravity also applies to the top 40 chart – what comes up, must come down. Aliens vs Predator was #1 last week. It’s now at #2, knocked off the top by the heavily promoted Heavy Rain. It’s the first Sony-published title to take the top of the chart since Killzone 2 almost a year ago. Copies of Heavy Rain are also said to be in shortage, with more due to arrive in stores by next week.
Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing is the next highest new entry at #8. It’s the Wii version that has been shifting the most copies, followed by Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Army of Two: The 40th Day is the week’s biggest faller dropping all the way from #10 to #30. Level 5’s RPG White Knight Chronicles is the only other new addition to the chart at #35.
Konami’s hopes must be shattered – Silent Hill: Shattered Memories hasn’t made the top #40 although it goes in at #11 in the Wii chart and #5 in the PlayStation 2 chart. And no, that isn’t a typo – Konami have released it on PlayStatation 2 instead of PlayStation 3.
