The UK sales charts have seen further movement this week, in what has been an unusually busy month of releases. Criterion and EA’s Black, which has generally received more favorable reviews in UK than in the U.S., has entered the charts straight in at number one, closely followed by Codemasters’ latest entry in the TOCA Race Driver series. The rest of the top ten has proven largely static, although in the case of Sony's Shadow of the Colossus, this demonstrates continued, and unexpected, demand for a game that was previously assumed to have only a limited appeal in the UK. The only other new entry in the top forty is Codemasters’ massively multiplayer online role-playing game RF Online at number eighteen – a surprisingly high entry for the Korean developed title in a market usually resistant to the genre, and further proof that gaming tastes in the UK are perhaps not as narrow as previously assumed, given the right marketing impetus.
