Even with radiant reviews Assassinâ€™s Creed 2 hasnâ€™t been able to knock Modern Warfare 2 off the top of the chart instead having to do with #2, which is respectable enough. New Super Mario Bros. Wii jumps in at #3; Left 4 Dead 2 at #7. It looks like itâ€™s going to do better than its processor did, although having said that I do believe that the original was something of a slow but steady seller. It held its price for a long time at least.
F1 2009 just misses out on a top 10 entry by arriving at #11. For a game released only on Wii and PSP though thatâ€™s still pretty good going. Another game charting higher than I expected is Lego Indiana Jones 2, which hasnâ€™t had much publicity in the press. I donâ€™t think Lucasarts even bothered sent review copies out in advance to the gameâ€™s release.
Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier and Saw havenâ€™t made it into the top 40 but Jak & Daxter goes in at #6 in the PlayStation 2 chart while Saw goes in at #13 in the and #15 respectively in the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 charts. I reckon it would have sold a whole lot more copies if it were released a month ago. Not that it particularly deserves to do so.
