It’s Monday, which can only mean one thing – a round up of the top 40 UK charts. Red Dead Redemption is #1 for the 5th week running, Super Mario Galaxy 2 holds onto #2 with 2010 FIFA World Cup still at #3.
Codemaster’s International Cricket 2010 is the highest new entry at #12, beating Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker which strolls into the chart at #18.
Spreadsheet sim Football Manager 2010 is the biggest riser for the week, going all the way from #31 to #16. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has also had a good week, going from #20 to #11. And after being reduced by retailers, Ubisoft’s Pure Football has made a re-appearance at #28.
I wasn’t sure if Darkstar One: Broken Alliance was out yet on Xbox 360, but it’s appearance in the Xbox 360 chart at #22 confirms it. Apparently it’s not bad at all.
