Go Speed Racer!

Hooray – Boom Blox has entered the chart on its second week of release at a not too shabby #21. Top Trumps: Doctor Who goes in at #22 and Speed Racer all the way down at #37. That’s a little bit of a shame as it’s the first decent movie license of the year. All of these games, though, have been outsold by High School Musical 2: Work it Out which goes in at #14.

Grand Theft Auto IV remains at #1, followed by a slew of Nintendo titles – Wii Fit, Mario Kart Wii, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and Wii Play. Iron Man has fallen two places, down from #5 to #7.

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity and Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 are doing well off the back of being bundled with Wii consoles, currently at #16 and #12 respectively. High street retailers are quite clever when it comes to getting rid of unsold titles. Especially when the hardware is as desirable as the Wii is.
