Kinect goes through the motions

UK Charts

There’s no prize for guessing what’s #1 this week. 2m copies were sold in the UK over 5 days, generating an estimated £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 week’s #1 – Football Manager 2011 – is now at #5.

Kinect hasn’t done too badly either with plenty of the launch games scattered around the chart. However, Kinect Adventures hasn’t been included in the top 40 as it was bundled with the device. Rare’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 hasn’t fared that much better – it’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 – it’s not hard to imagine a clueless grandparent buying a Bond game for their grandson for Christmas.
