Singing when you’re winging

There are four new entries in the top 40 this week but none of them have been able to tackle FIFA Street from the top spot.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City – Capcom’s first western-developed Resident Evil – leaps in at #2. That’s followed by Mass Effect 3, FIFA 12, SSX and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. At #7 it’s new release Kid Icarus: Uprising with Battlefield 3, F1 2011 and Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics rounding off the top 10.

Shogun 2: Total War Fall of the Samurai is the next highest entry at #17 while Ninja Gaiden 3 enters at #19. Reviews of Ninja Gaiden 3 have been mixed – everything from 3/10 to 8/10. From what we’ve played so far it doesn’t really deserve to chart at all. It looks and feels distinctly low budget.

The well received Armored Core V doesn’t make the PlayStation 3 chart but it does make an appearance in the Xbox 360 chart at #30.

That’s better than what Microsoft’s Kinect Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure managed, which limps in at #38 also in the Xbox 360 chart.

  • Good to see Kid Icarus penetrating the top ten. I wonder if it’ll become one of Nintendo’s evergreen titles? They’ve certainly been advertising it enough from what I’ve seen.

  • The evergreen titles tend to be a bit more casual – Wii Fit, Tetris, Wii Music, Nintendogs, etc – but it might do well on word of mouth.

  • Time will tell, I guess. It’s not like we have a shortage of great 3DS games around at the moment.

    Let’s hope it does well enough to spawn a Wii-U outing.
