Konami enslaves the chart

UK Charts

In the all formats chart Castlevania: Lords of Shadow managed to outdo Enslaved: Odyssey to the West by one place – Konami’s fang-tastic romp goes in at #6 while Ninja Theory’s monkey man jumps in at #7. Likewise in the PlayStation 3 chart Castlevania sold more than Enslaved did but the Xbox 360 chart tells a different story with Enslaved ranking higher than Castlevania by one place. What does this tell us? Probably that more PlayStation owners are bigger fans of Castlevania.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 is the highest new entry though at #2, currently unable to shove FIFA 11 off the top of the chart. Wii Party – which comes bundled with a Wii Remote – boogies into the chart at #10 while WRC: FIA World Championship skids in at #11. NBA 2K11 is the only other new release making a chart appearance at a respectable #19.

There’s still no sign of movie tie-in Despicable Me in the top 40, and neither has Front Mission Evolved managed to make it. It does though make it into the Xbox 360 chart at #25.
