Glad to see Crackdown is getting the sales it deserves, although I do hope people aren't just buying it for the Halo 3 Beta.

It's also good to see that Excite truck is selling better and im impressed to see both NSMB and brain training are still high up in the charts. Can't wait to see how well Sonic does next week.

Excite Truck is probably the best game out there for the Wii now. I'm still enjoying this game.

Ditto.
i had a feeling it was going to be lame, but it really is a solid title. especially the MP3 support, makes for awesome soundtracks.

Great news for Final Fantasy XII. Possibly the best RPG made for last gen.

Wooohooo Excite Truck is first!!
By the way Crackdown is shit, i saw loads of videos of it on GT... and it looks crap!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

I've played the demo and it's amazing.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

It's a game where all you do is run around a city and blow shit up, with the ability to jump crazily high... How the hell could that not be an awesome game?

Anyone who disagrees deserves to have a lorry thrown at them.

Or a massive level 4 truck. And then to have it blow up

Isn't the Crackdown project the one with the Director of the GTA series involved? I've heard it's meant to be very impressive...but I'm VERY pleased to see FFXII beat it. Hopefully this bodes well for the launch of FFIII on DS, also self-published by S-E Smilie

And it's great to see ExciteTruck doing so well...shame Kororinpa was overlooked. It's probably a 6 or 7/10 game, but still so much fun (in a Monkey Ball-frustrating way).

The fact that you can see buildings on the OTHER SIDE OF THE MAP. From anywhere is enough reason to get the game. The story is shit, and it doesn't last that long (the story), but it's a huge technical leap, and will make it hard going back to games with crappy draw distances.

Yeah Crackdown is the first major game by the GTA director's new studio. You play as an agent with super-hero like powers (built up RPG style) so you can eventually jump huge distances and lift massive objects among more basic attributes. The demo was amazing fun, loads more fun just messing about than any GTA game, but reviews say the main single player 'quest' is pretty short and repetitive in itself.
The main appeal to me is online and split screen co-op, which is pretty technically amazing as the massive draw distance supposedly doesn't suffer at all no matter how far away the two players are apart in the city.
The graphics are nice and unique as well.

There must be a lot of people buying it mainly for the Halo 3 beta access though so on it's own it might not have been so high in the chart.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Unfortunately from what I've played of co-op, the lag is almost unbearable at times. And there is no split screen co-op I'm afraid.

Kind of makes it all the more amazing that FFXII beat it to No.1, especially given that the PS2 had been slowing down in recent weeks (Okami d

Really? I was positive there was...

Glad to see Excite Truck getting some deserved sales, some of the most fun I've had with Wii so far. Also happy that Crackdown is doing well, that game looks SO good, can't wait til I'm able to play it.

10% of PES sales on the DS, well that just shows how strong the DS Top 20 is, if it can't crack it.

Correct if i am wrong the PSP version is selling more than the PS2 version.


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 clich. They were the statement and the definition."

It's very close between the three main formats: PSP - 31%, PS2 - 29%, Xbox 360 - 28%...and the remaining 2% must be for the PC version.
