EA Maintains Commanding Presence In UK Charts

The busy Easter holidays in the UK have seen EA’s re-launch of the Command & Conquer franchise enjoy its second week at number one, alongside strong competition from TMNT, Guitar Hero II and increased Wii hardware availability.
The Easter holidays, traditionally one of the UK’s busiest sales times of the year outside of the Christmas period, have seen EA’s re-launch of the Command & Conquer franchise enjoy its second week at number one, despite being currently available only on PC and enduring a fall in sales of 43 percent. Command & Conquer 3’s closest rival, separated by a mere 592 units, has been Ubisoft’s TMNT movie tie-in, which despite poor reviews has risen a further four places, as the film continues to perform at the box office. Also rising sharply is PlayStation 2 and Wii release Medal of Honor: Vanguard at number four, with the PlayStation 2 version still accounting for 84 percent of the title’s overall sales. The highest selling Xbox 360 game of the week is Guitar Hero II, which sees the former PlayStation 2 exclusive re-enter the charts at number five. The highest ranked PlayStation 3 exclusive is Resistance: Fall of Man, falling nine places to number eleven, with MotorStorm dropping twelve places to number fifteen. The highest ranked Wii (pseudo)-exclusive of the week is The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which re-enters the chart at number thirty-two. An improved stock situation has also seen Rayman Raving Rabbids re-enter the charts at number sixteen, with Wii Play at number thirty-six. Despite the additional inventory the console remains sold out across the country.
