After three weeks of trying Activision’s Transformers
movie license has finally hit the top spot in the UK sales chart, despite a 10 percent drop in sales. However, it is one of only two titles in the top ten which are not exclusively for either the Nintendo DS or Wii.
Although combined sales for Pokemon Diamond
would have propelled the title to the top spot, a 20 percent decline in Pokemon Diamond
’s sales saw it reduced to the number two spot.
Nevertheless, a total of seven games in the top ten are first party Nintendo games, with 505 Games’ import of Cooking Mama
on Wii and Nintendo DS also performing well at number ten.
There are few new faces in the top forty this week, with the highest ranking being the Wii's Mario Party 8
reappearance at number nine, after being voluntarily recalled by Nintendo on its initial release.
The multiformat Resident Evil 4
also reappears at number twenty-six, with the only genuine new entry this week being PlayStation 2 karaoke game SingStar ‘90s
at number thirty-two.
