Thereâ€™s no prize for guessing whatâ€™s #1 this week. 2m copies were sold in the UK over 5 days, generating an estimated Â£81.9m. The Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops sold the most copies with 55% of the share, while the PS3 version gained 42%. This means that the Wii, DS and PC versions only took 3% between them. This is a little surprising – first person shooters usually sell quite well on PC, especially if they give the chance for a PC owner to show off their stupidly expensive graphics card.
Last weekâ€™s #1 – Football Manager 2011 – is now at #5.
Kinect hasnâ€™t done too badly either with plenty of the launch games scattered around the chart. However, Kinect Adventures hasnâ€™t been included in the top 40 as it was bundled with the device. Rareâ€™s Kinect Sports did the best at #4, followed by Dance Central at #13, Motion Sports at #15, Fighters Uncaged at #23, Kinectimals at #26, Kinect Joy Ride at #30, Your Shape at #33 and Sonic Free Riders at #38.
Sonic Colours hasnâ€™t fared that much better – itâ€™s at #36.
Both Bonds are slipping – GoldenEye 007 drops from #13 to #20 while 007: Blood Stone has gone from #18 to #22. They may rise back up again though – itâ€™s not hard to imagine a clueless grandparent buying a Bond game for their grandson for Christmas.
I’m assuming (perhaps incorrectly?) that PC download sales aren’t included in those figures..
