UK Charts: FIFA World Cup 2010 retains title

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa holds off Just Dance for a second week at number one, while Modern Warfare 2 and Bad Company 2 both climb.

EA's 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa has maintained its dominance in the UK games chart this week, holding onto the number one spot for the second time in a row. Chart-Track reports that last week's second-place holder Super Street Fighter IV has slid to sixth place, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 leapt back up to three. EA's rival multiplayer shooter Battlefield: Bad Company 2 also climbed this week, swapping its ninth-place spot for a loftier fifth place.

Back of the net for FIFA. Again.

Less fortunate were God of War Collection for the PlayStation 3, which fell from number 10 to 20 in its second week on sale, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, which dropped slightly from fourth to eighth. Evergreen Wii titles Wii Fit Plus, Wii Sports Resort, and Just Dance fill out the rest of the top 10, with the latter jumping back up to number two from last week's three.

This week sees a plethora of big-name titles that could upset the chart next week, including Alan Wake, Lost Planet 2, and Skate 3.

I suppose it's easier to buy FIFA WC South Africa than actually going there...and safer too.

I always thought "World Cup" should have been an EP for FIFA 10, but then EA would obviously think differently, as it is inherently still FIFA 10 and FIFA 11 is already in development. Interesting to see "MW2" still right up there...might have been helped by the release of the Stimulus Pack.

Fifa World Cup could have just been DLC by adding a World Cup mode and who is buying Just Dance.
