War – Good for Making Activision money

UK Charts

Yes, that game is #1. And yes, that game sold an army boat full of copies – a staggering 1.78 million units in the UK over 5 days, generating £67.4m. The Xbox 360 version alone shifted 1 million copies. Rumours of the DS version selling more than 12 copies are unconfirmed.

Wii Fit Plus drops from #1 to #4 and Lego Batman and Pure are both back in the top 10 due to being included in new Xbox 360 bundles. Good to see Pure riding high – it’s an awesome game. In its second week in the chart Dragon Age: Origins has fallen all the way from #5 to #13. Tekken 6 has also gone from #10 to #20.

New releases Cooking Mama 3, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast and Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage all fail to make the chart but Hasbro Family Game Night Vol 2 and Rabbids Go Home make the cut at #32 and #38 respectively. Rah!
