So here it is, merry Christmas, everybody is kicking a piece of virtual spherical leather around. Yes, FIFA 09 is the Christmas number one. Itâ€™s EAâ€™s sixth in eight years, so well done them. I’m just glad it wasnâ€™t Need for Speed: Undercover.
Call of Duty: World of War, which was tipped for the top, settles for #2, followed by Mario Kart Wii, Need for Speed: Undercover, Dr. Kawasimaâ€™s Brain Training, Wii Play, Quantum of Solace, Professor Layton, Tomb Raider Underworld and Wii Fit.
Nintendoâ€™s big Christmas games Wii Music and Animal Crossing: Letâ€™s Buy It Again have to do with #31 and #32. Sonyâ€™s big hopes LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2 are at #15 and #30. Then there are the Xbox 360 big guns: Gears of War 2 at #21, and Lips at #38.
The sales should shake things up a bit. Hopefully Mirrorâ€™s Edge will be on the rise seeing itâ€™s been cut to Â£20 in a lot of places. We might see Prince of Persia and Fallout 3 rising back up into the top ten too.
