With the World Cup now in full swing, Electronic Arts’ multi-platform soccer title 2006 FIFA World Cup has made an inevitable reappearance at the top of the UK video game sales charts, swapping places with Eidos’ Hitman: Blood Money this week. The UK top forty now contains seven soccer titles, with the newest entry being pseudo-budget title Sensible Soccer 2006 at number seven. However, a combination of World Cup fever and continued good weather has resulted in one of the softest sales weeks of the year so far in the UK, with the combined sales of the top ten failing to amount to more than 100,000 units. Nevertheless, Xbox 360 exclusive MotoGP ’06 has performed well at number four, and Nintendo are likely to be pleased with the debut of the budget priced Brain Training (aka Brain Age) at number six – assuming it shares some of the same longevity as Animal Crossing: Wild World.
