UK Charts

This week’s chart is a sight for sore eyes with lots of interesting things happening. Tom Clancy’s HAWK 2 has gone from #10 to #2, Tetris Party Deluxe has risen all the way from #23 to #5 and the apparently quite good Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions has crawled in at #6. Spidey is followed by another two new entries – Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep at #7 and Ubisoft’s RUSE at #8.

I’m surprised by the last two – the PSP has had a rough few months, so it’s good to see a PSP-exclusive in the top 10. I was also under the impression that RUSE hadn’t received much publicity and that console RTSs aren’t that popular, so that’s me proved wrong on two accounts.

It has been a very bad week for Metroid: Other M though – it’s dropped all the way from #12 to #40. Unless retailers drop the price it may even be out of the chart by next week.

Spiderman

Publishers really shouldn’t slag off their own games, as it makes the people who bought them feel like mugs. It is pretty amusing when they do though. Case in point – Activision boss Bobby Kotick sharing his thoughts on the recent Spider-Man games to Game Informer:

“Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years. They are bad games. They were poorly rated because they were bad games. We went away from what is Spider-Man. It’s about web-slinging. If you don’t do web-slinging, what is the fantasy of Spider-Man?”

Does this mean that this year’s Spider-Man game is having some love and attention put into it? It could well be a sign.
