This weekâ€™s chart is a sight for sore eyes with lots of interesting things happening. Tom Clancyâ€™s HAWK 2 has gone from #10 to #2, Tetris Party Deluxe has risen all the way from #23 to #5 and the apparently quite good Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions has crawled in at #6. Spidey is followed by another two new entries – Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep at #7 and Ubisoft’s RUSE at #8.
Iâ€™m surprised by the last two – the PSP has had a rough few months, so itâ€™s good to see a PSP-exclusive in the top 10. I was also under the impression that RUSE hadnâ€™t received much publicity and that console RTSs arenâ€™t that popular, so thatâ€™s me proved wrong on two accounts.
It has been a very bad week for Metroid: Other M though – itâ€™s dropped all the way from #12 to #40. Unless retailers drop the price it may even be out of the chart by next week.
