Fourth Time On Top For FIFA In UK Charts

EA’s soccer superstar FIFA 07 has returned to the top of the UK sales charts for an unprecedented fourth time, in a chart dominated by budget priced titles, as well as the debut of THQ's PC exclusive real time strategy title Supreme Commander
Electronic Arts’ top selling soccer title FIFA 07 has returned to the top spot in the UK sales charts for the fourth time, for a total of ten non-consecutive weeks in the number one spot. The game’s latest rise has been due to continued in-store discounts for the title, with similar price cuts also accounting for the rise in sales for EA's Need for Speed: Carbon and Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 6. The highest new entry of the week, and essentially the highest-ranked full price title, is THQ’s real-time strategy game Supreme Commander at number four. Cartoon license Avatar: The Legend of Aang (aka Avatar: The Last Airbender) is the fastest mover of the week, up seven places to number six. Elsewhere in the top forty, the second highest new entry of the week is ultra budget re-release Bad Boys II at number seventeen, with compendium 50 Games Red, also a sub-£10 ($19) release, at number nineteen. EA’s laptop-focused The Sims spin-off, The Sims Life Stories, debuts at number twenty-three, just one place above the latest reappearance of the budget priced release of the original PC version of The Sims. Further down the charts, children’s movie license Charlotte’s Web debuts at number thirty-five for Sega. Finally, Excite Truck for the Wii (which was not a launch title in Europe) has entered at number thirty six, a position not likely to have been helped by continued low stock of Wii hardware.
