A league of its own

UK Charts

It must be really hard for publishers to predict what games will sell well on Wii. I say this because Rugby League 3, which has had next to no publicity, has managed to get to #5 in the Wii chart. When you consider Red Steel 2 is at #7, that’s quite a feat.

In the all formats top 40 there’s yet another new #1 – Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction. Grand Theft Auto Episodes: Liberty City goes in at #3. Batman Arkham Asylum: Game of the Year Edition is the only other new entry at #35.

The upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray release of Avatar could see it shoot back on the chart next week. Apparently certain CeX stores have been selling it early. Naughty!
