Hell to pay

UK Chart

Stamina. Strength. Speed. Determination. What better way to recreate the feats required to enter the Olympics than by sitting at home with a piece of plastic in your hand? Beijing 2008 is up from #13 to #3, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games up from #8 to #4, and Summer Athletics from Eidos goes in at #25. But who’s #1 in the chart? That’ll be Mario Kart Wii.

Madden 09 arrives #17, while Soul Calibur IV has dropped from #2 to #8. Hellboy: The Science of Evil fails to get into the top 40, but goes in at #26 in the Xbox 360 chart.

Ubisoft’s Puzzler Collection looks like its proving popular despite no promotion. It’s currently at #34 in the all formats and #9 in the DS chart. People must be really desperate to do crosswords and word searches while waiting for the bus.
