UK Chart

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 has tackled FIFA 09 to take the top spot in the chart. How long for, though, is the question; undoubtedly FIFA will be top dog again sometime in the run up to Christmas.

FIFA 09 drops to #2, with Saints Row 2 in at #3. Bioshock – which was released on PlayStation 3 last week – is the next new entry at #14.

Golden Axe: Beast Rider, which has received some appalling reviews, only manages an appearance in the Xbox 360 chart at a poor #17. What’s the betting that this will be one of the first games reduced in the Christmas sales?

There’s quite a lot of older games, most of which are knocking on for a year old, around the arse end of the chart: Assassin’s Creed, Ratatoulille, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Halo 3 and The Simpsons Game to be precise. I’m guessing Halo 3 is being bundled with Xbox 360 consoles, as it has gone from #22 to #16 this week.
