GTA IV, Wii Fit Remain Atop Weekly UK Charts
The top three titles in the UK individual format charts have remained the same for the third week in a row, despite sharp drops in sales for both Grand Theft Auto IV and Wii Fit. The highest new entry of the week is EA’s Boom Blox.
The top three titles in the UK individual format charts have remained the same for the third week in a row, with the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV, the PlayStation 3 version of the same (being outsold by 55 percent to the PS3's 44 percent) and Wii Fit. Combined sales of Grand Theft Auto IV fell by 41 percent in the game’s third week on release, while Nintendo’s hardware bundle saw sales drop by 52 percent. Stock of Nintendo titles still remains fluid, with Wii Fit’s availability varying considerably across the country, and Mario Kart Wii at number four only just returning to full availability after many stores sold out last week. Despite these problems, the combined format charts feature twenty Nintendo format exclusives, with twenty-eight games in the top forty selling best on Nintendo consoles. The highest new entry of the week is Electronic Arts’ Wii exclusive title Boom Blox at number nineteen, with the only other genuine new entry of the week being Eidos Interactive’s card game license Top Trumps: Doctor Who on Nintendo DS at number thirty-three. A number of older titles have re-entered this chart this week, after being widely discounted at retail or bundled with new hardware. Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity on Wii reappears as high as number thirteen, while the PC version of Football Manager 2008 is at number thirty-five, Wii exclusive The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return at number thirty-seven, the Nintendo DS version of Ben 10 at number thirty-eight and the PSP version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories at number thirty-nine. Overall in the individual formats top forty, there are fifteen Wii titles, thirteen on Nintendo DS, four on Xbox 360, three on PlayStation 3, two each on PlayStation 2 and PSP and one on PC.
