Just do it

UK Charts

I’m a gambling man, so I’m not sure why I didn’t put money on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 being Christmas #1. It’s probably because I’d be too embarrassed to walk into Ladbrokes and actually do it. This is what the Christmas top 10 chart looks like, anyway:

1 CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2
2 FIFA 10
3 WII FIT PLUS
4 WII SPORTS RESORT
5 ASSASSIN’S CREED II
6 MARIO & SONIC AT OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES
7 NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. WII
8 FORZA MOTORSPORT 3
9 MARIO KART WII
10 JUST DANCE

I bet a month ago nobody could have predicted Just Dance making the cut. It’s also fair to say that Nintendo have ‘ruled’ this Christmas – six of those games are exclusive to Nintendo formats, so well done them. Any company that can get a game that’s nearly two years old (Mario Kart Wii) into the Christmas top 10 genuinely deserves a pat on the back.
