Remember when the chart was full of Â£1 PC games that Asda was flogging? Something similar has happened. See, Morrisons had quite a good deal on last week – selected new Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games were Â£25, Wii games Â£15 and DS games Â£12. This seems to have had a knock on effect on the chart, with most of the games in the offer shooting up or reappearing. Most notably: Kung Fu Panda back in at #23; Smash Bros Brawl, Off Road, Cooking Guide, Guitar Hero: On Tour, Sports Party, Soul Calibur IV and GTA IV all going up a few places.
The top three has remained the same – Mercenaries 2 on top followed by Tiger Woods 09 and Spore. TNA Impact goes in at #9 despite average review scores, Spore Creatures arrives at #14 in its second week of release, while The Sims 2: Apartment Pets – which apparently sold out on release – is back at #19. Rock Band – which came out on PlayStation 2 and 3 and Wii last week – only manages a poor #30. Also feel sorry for Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise, which has slipped from #23 to #40. Too Human is also on the way out dropping from #16 to #38.
Thereâ€™s a little bit of action in the Xbox 360 chart – Warhammer: Battle March enters at #11, NHL 09 at #15 and Supreme Commander at #25. Ferrari Challenge screeches in at #29 in the Wii chart and something called Spellbound at a lowly #41 in the DS chart.
