Corks must be popping at Nintendo: four of the titles in the top ten are Nintendo exclusives. Pokemon Ranger is on top of the pile at #1, knocking TMNT down to #2; Wii Play is up from #23 to #3; Harvest Moon DS is in at #4 on its second week of release; and Brain Training has gone from #9 to #6. Still a couple of super-reduced Ubisoft PC games in the top 10 too: Rayman 2 at #5 and Prince of Persia Sands of Time at #8. Skanks alive!
There’s a little bit of action is going on further down in the chart. The rather good 42 All Time Classics is back in at #21, presumably as itâ€™s Â£8-odd at Tesco, Guitar Hero II has dropped from #12 to #29, and F.E.A.R. is back in at #17 thanks to being released on PlayStation 3 last week. Motorstorm is on the slow rise – up from #22 to #18 – while Resistance has done the opposite and dropped from #27 to #32.
A special mention must also go to Burnout Dominator, which is now completely out of the top 40 altogether. EA must be kicking themselves over not doing a Wii version.
