UK Chart Highlights XCI
...Nintendo Holding Strong with Zelda, Wii Play & WarioWare


Your weekly UK Chart Round-Up brought to you by stat-man jesusraz. Remember, the images here do not reflect actual sales!

Bouncing around...

Stock supplies are up and down like a yo-yo lately due to such strong demand for both the Nintendo DS and Wii in terms of both hardware and software. However, the once stale charts are now much livelier and certainly it has meant that each week of the New Year has been an interesting one as games bounce around the charts. This week it is the turn of Wii Play to be pumped back into stores and since it comes with a 'free' Wii controller, you can imagine how quickly they are being snapped up...


Wii Play as strong as ever...

As 2007 trundles along, Nintendo is finally pumping more stock into the country and this week sees Wii Play lifted as a result. The game is classed as retailing at only

Chu Chu Rocket? The Old Chu Chu Rocket from Dreamcast? *wonder* How did that get in here?

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

It'll be Chu Chu Rocket on GBA, it has a version of it. Thank God that people aren't buying Far Cry anymore...enough to get it in the top ten, anyway.

CAPCOM are really enjoying alot of success with Lost Planet.

Glad to see Wario Ware still up near the top.

DS really is something else just unbelievable hardware and software sales.

Great that Warioware is still near the top! It's really a huge feat to get a game in the top 5 within the first 2 months of release I say....

By the way, anyone else here noticed Zelda on GC seems to be getting hard to find? In the GAMe I went to last weekend, I couldn't see a single copy.

There probably is a bigger focus on getting the Wii versions out in the selves.

Oh my gosh I loved that game. Really, really loved it!

I'm quite shocked and amazed that FIFA 07 is still there though. I mean, even if it is out on 9 platforms...Smilie

It is indeed quite shocking how some really old games can be boosted so randomly. I mean, Sega launched a whole slew of double-packs at the tail end of 2005 (I believe it was then, anyway) and only now is one of them doing well in the chart (Sonic + Chu Chu).

Same goes for Zoo Tycoon, which bombed when originally released...although its popularity is probably because it was reduced to

It's actually quite suprising to see Wario Ware: Smooth Moves there, in my opinion. It's way over priced and to be honest I would pay

Marzy, my tears of pride for your progress are rapidly drying.

Shortlived-but-quality title with major multiplayer replayability>2 games self-described as 'average' and 'stupidly poor'

Overcome your trade-in aversion and ditch them pronto.

Less posty, more gamey.

I agree with Marzy on this one. Surely
