UK game chart: February 4-10
Battlestations: Midway flies straight in at number one, while Little Britain beats the football games into second. "Yeah, I know."
Eidos is celebrating the success of World War II strategy game Battlestations: Midway, as it has landed atop the UK all-formats chart based on sales for the week of February 4-10. It was followed closely by a resurgent Little Britain The Video Game--a series of minigames based on the popular UK television comedy series--which went up from 14th to number two.
Perennial football favourites FIFA 07 and Pro Evolution Soccer 6 simply refused to go away and took third and fourth respectively, while arcade classics bundle Sega Mega Drive Collection fell a place to fifth.
Capcom's Xbox 360 action game Lost Planet: Extreme Condition was the biggest faller in the top 10, dropping to sixth from last week's number one spot, while Need for Speed Carbon, The Sims 2: Pets, New Super Mario Bros., and Cars filled out the rest of the top 10.
Other notable new entries included THQ's Avatar: The Legend of Aang at 13 and the critically acclaimed Okami, which made its debut at 17.
Among the games to look out for in UK stores this week (and likely to dent the chart next week) are Supreme Commander (PC), ArmA: Armed Assault (PC) from 505 Game Street, God Hand (PlayStation 2), and Nintendo's Excite Truck (Wii).
