Gravity never lets me down

Three new entries in chart land this week – Unreal Tournament III at #9, FIFA Street 3 at #11 and Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity at #37. Sega have been a bit cheeky with Sonic Riders – the PlayStation 2 version is only £19.99 (although it can be found for £14.99 on the internet) but the Wii version is full price. That probably explains the low chart position. Well, that and the fact that it’s meant to be a little bit rubbish.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games continues to hold the top spot, followed by Call of Duty 4, Brain Training, Devil May Cry 4 and Wii Play. Midway’s apparently dire Game Party has shot up from #15 to #6, while Cooking Mama 2 is also on the rise, from #33 to #12. Burnout Paradise is already out of the top ten, dropping from #8 to #14.

Over in the single format charts, the lovely looking Patapon enters the PSP chart at #5, while poor movie tie-in Jumper goes in at a lowly #20 in the PlayStation 2 chart. It’s even being outsold by Alvin and the Chipmunks!
