FIFA Crosses 1M In Three Weeks In UK, Uncharted 2 Comes Out Strong

EA Sports' multiplatform game FIFA 10 led overall sales by title in the UK for the third week in a row, crossing the 1 million mark, as the PS3-only Uncharted 2 debuts at number two.
EA Sports' multiplatform game FIFA 10 led the all-platforms sales charts in the UK for the third week in a row, topping the PlayStation 3-only action game Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which debuted in second place for the week ended October 17, Chart-Track said Monday. The tracking firm said that combined multiplatform sales of FIFA 10 dropped "severely" again, week-on-week, this time by 51 percent. But it was still enough to push sales of the game in the UK "comfortably" past 1 million units sold, three weeks faster than last year's FIFA 09, Chart-Track said. FIFA 10 fought off Naughty Dog's and Sony's newly-released Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which was only on PlayStation 3. Other debuts on the all-platforms sales list include EA and Double Fine's Brutal Legend, Sega's Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, and Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition from Bethesda Softworks. Games falling out of the all-platforms top 10 include Gran Turismo for PSP, Wii Fit, Mario Kart Wii, and Guitar Hero 5. All-Platforms Top 10 1. FIFA 10 (EA) 2. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (Sony) 3.
