FIFA 11

Zelda: A Link to the Chart

Zumba Fitness is #1 for the 9th week in a row, but let’s ignore that shall we? Thanks. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is up from #5 to #2, Cars 2 holds onto #3, DiRT 3 slides from #2 to #4 and FIFA 11 goes up one place...

Zumba Fitness burns cellulite; continues to sell alright

Zumba Fitness became 505 Games’ first ever #1 last week. It’s still at #1 this week, so it’s not hard to imagine that they’re pretty pleased about that. If another Zumba game isn’t released in time for Christmas I’ll happily eat my own weight in lard. Promotion, of...

Not such a Marvel (vs Capcom 3)

It’s a good first week for Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, but not quite as good as we expected: it debuts at #2. That’s a bit better than Marvel vs Capcom 2, which entered the chart at #183 back in 2002. That’s not an exaggeration:...

Legs eleven

UK Charts This week’s chart is the first since Christmas. This means that a lot of new console owners have been contributing to game sales over the last seven days, and also those who have been out looking for bargains in the sales. There’s a change over on...

It’s Christmas! Let’s shoot people!

UK Charts Between them, Activision, EA and Ubisoft rule the top 5 this week – Call of Duty: Black Ops is rather predictably Christmas #1 and is followed by FIFA 11 at #2, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit at #3, Just Dance 2 at #4 and Assassin’s Creed:...

Donkey Kong climbs

UK Charts There’s no joy for Golden Sun: Dark Dawn in this week’s top 40 chart but Epic Mickey has finally made an appearance at a rather lowly #37. Call of Duty: Black Ops holds onto #1 and is followed by FIFA 11 at #2 and new entry...

Potterwatch

UK Charts Never mind being bad, Michael Jackson: The Experience has had a good week – it’s up from #32 to #6. Poor old Epic Mickey can only wish for such luck – it still hasn’t managed to enter the top 40. Donkey Kong Country Returns swings in...

You can’t get blood from a stone

UK Charts GoldenEye 007 hasn’t managed to make it into the top 10 chart this week, but don’t feel down because 007: Blood Stone hasn’t made the cut either. Instead they’re at #13 and #17 respectively. I think Activision themselves are partly to blame – what were they...

Don’t have a Brahmin, man

UK Charts Like Fallout 3 before it, which went straight to #1 back in 2008, Fallout: New Vegas has hit the jackpot for Bethesda and has also managed to outsell its predecessor on launch. Medal of Honor is now at #2, FIFA 11 at #3 and at #4...

Honour for Honor

UK Charts Were a few rather critical reviews ever going to harm Medal of Honor? Of course not – even though it has been a few years since the last MoH it’s still a franchise that’s popular. As such, it enters at #1 in the UK chart, beating...

Konami enslaves the chart

UK Charts In the all formats chart Castlevania: Lords of Shadow managed to outdo Enslaved: Odyssey to the West by one place – Konami’s fang-tastic romp goes in at #6 while Ninja Theory’s monkey man jumps in at #7. Likewise in the PlayStation 3 chart Castlevania sold more...

News just in: FIFA is still popular

UK Charts Only an idiot would doubt that FIFA 11 would take the top spot in the UK chart this week. How many copies have been sold though is really quite astonishing – 821,000 in just one weekend. In total FIFA 11 counts for 51% of all games...
