...Nintendo Takes Command, Wii Play Storms Up Again!


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

Taking Command...

With the Wii taking most of the limelight in recent weeks, the DS has taken somewhat of a backseat. However, with it set to have two major new releases hit retail last Friday, in the form of Mitchell's latest puzzle classic actionloop (review" rel="external" class='fmlink'>http://www.cubed3.com/news/6695/]review here) and Nintendo's own Starfox Command (review" rel="external" class='fmlink'>http://www.cubed3.com/news/6674/]review here, can either of them push the portable back to the forefront of everyone's attention or will the Wii lead the way in the UK once more?


Going crazy for Wii Play...

Following its mighty drop soon after launch, Wii Play has gradually dragged itself back up the All Prices Top 40 and this week hits a new high, jumping seven to No.4. Brain Training is hanging on, down just two to No.17 and Zoo Tycoon continues to perform higher than ever expected

Im hoping for a price drop in Starfox before i purchase it. Im suprised to see Wario Ware perform so well, and Wii Play!

Flynnie loving your naked picture Smilie have a star.

Is it just me or is Lost Planet selling far more than Gears of War, it's the first 360 game to have legs.

Starfox did alright, but if it can't outsell the GameCube version, it ain't doing great. Another example that people are bored of the series.

Nintendo are the key publisher in the UK now Smilie and in the Irish chart them and EA both have five titles in the top 20.

Kudos to Nintendo.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

It's just a shame that when walking around stores in Manchester this week, I've found no copies of Children of Mana or Yoshi's Island.

Mana only seems to have done well in Germany, where the series has a very strong fanbase. Nintendo UK seems to have just neglected it completely here...possibly to help Magical Starsign next month. But I don't even think that will be supported too well either Smilie Smilie

Lost Planet isn't even as good as Gears of War Smilie

It really is a shame that CAPCOM decide to push an ordinary game in Lost Planet alot here more than cracking titles in RE4 and DMC3.

The potential them two titles had especially RE4 and they are selling nowhere near as good as Lost Planet, CAPCOM are idiots.
