Mahjong – more popular than Star Wars

UK Chart

The headline? That’s as far as DS owners are concerned. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed only manages to get to #39 in the DS chart, whereas Mahjongg goes in at #17. Star Wars is top of the all formats chart though, and #1 in all three PlayStation charts, as well as Xbox 360. The Wii version manages to get to #3 in the Wii chart, pipped by Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit.

The top ten in the all format chart is quite different from last week’s: Mercenaries 2 has dropped from #1 to #6, Tiger Woods 09 from #2 to #5 and Spore from #3 to #10. PC thing Warhammer Online enters at #4. That’s two PC-exclusives in the top ten – something that hasn’t happened for a while. Crisis: Warhead – another PC-exclusive – is the only other new entry at #21.

Too Human was hanging in the chart by a thread last week, but has risen from #38 to #22 due to being discounted in a few high street stores. A fair few games have fallen like metal balloons though – Guitar Hero: On Tour down from #8 to #23, Spore Creatures from #14 to #28 and Smash Bros. Brawl from #13 to #35.
