“Autobots, roll out”

The good news is that the highest new entry in this week’s chart isn’t the new Transformers tie-in but rather F.E.A.R 3 which makes a chart debut at #3. Optimus and the others have to make do with #17. No doubt it’ll be in the top 10 next week once the movie is released.

Speaking of the top 10, Zumba Fitness is still #1. L.A Noire is up from #4 to #2, DiRT 3 rises from #7 to #3 and thanks to Wimbledon Top Spin 4 bounces back from #28 to #10. Both Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Duke Nukem Forever are on the fall though – Link is down to #6 and Duke is now at #8.

Shadows of the Damned hasn’t got off to a very good start at all – it enters at #31. That’s still better than Child of Eden, which has dropped to #35. THQ has also had a bad week – Red Faction: Armageddon has gone from #12 to #32 while Homefront has drops from #18 to #37.

There’s still no sign of the Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters in the top 40 despite the film now being shown in cinemas. The best the green guy can do is #20 in the Wii chart.
