For a reason we cannot understand, Just Dance 3 was released on Tuesday last week rather than Friday. Even with a few extra dayâ€™s worth of sales behind it Ubisoftâ€™s dancing game hasnâ€™t been able to outsell FIFA 12, entering at #3 in the top 40 UK chart.
Forza Motorsport 4 on the other hand has managed to tackle FIFA 12 this week and enters at the top of the chart knocking FIFA 12 to #2. It was a close call though â€“ according to Chart-Track Forza 4 only beat FIFA 12 by 700 copies.
RAGE drops from #2 to #4 while Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 makes its mark at #5. Last yearâ€™s rendition managed to enter at #2. Itâ€™s the PlayStation 3 version of Pro Evolution 2012 that has shifted the most copies so far, according to the individual formats chart.
The new entries donâ€™t stop here. Far from it. At #10 thereâ€™s Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon at #12, the budget-priced Dead Rising 2: Off the Record at #14, Skylanders: Spyroâ€™s Adventure at #16 and Spider-Man: Edge of Time at a very poor #39. Oddly, itâ€™s the Xbox 360 version of Skylanders thatâ€™s proving to be the most popular and not the Wii version as some may expect.
The PlayStation 2 chart continues to be a source of amusement, and hopefully not just for ourselves. This week the top 10 contains FIFA 12, FIFA 11, FIFA 09 and three rather â€˜hardcoreâ€™ RPGs. Yes – people went out and purchased FIFA 09 on PlayStation 2 last week. Crazy.
