Wii RPG Pandora's Tower barely registers in UK sales charts

Despite a 22 percent drop in sales week-over-over, EA's FIFA Street retook the top of the UK sales charts last week, while Wii RPG Pandora's Tower launched with poor sales.
Despite a 22 percent drop in sales week-over-over, EA's FIFA Street retook the top of the UK sales charts last week, marking four weeks at number one since its release a month ago. For the week ended April 14, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the previous week's number one Kinect Star Wars dropped down to number four, with a 55 percent drop in sales compared to its launch weekend. This drop allowed Mass Effect 3 and FIFA 12 to move up one position each, meaning EA now holds the top three spots, and four of the top five, with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 at number five. There were no new entries in the top 10 chart this week. Nintendo and Ganbarion's Pandora's Tower for Wii performed particularly poorly in its opening week, only managing to reach number 38 in the charts. Elsewhere, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Battlefield 3 continued to hang around the top 10, while SSX brought up the rear at position ten. Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
