UK Chart Highlights: 10th December, 2007
...Mario & Sonic Gives Nintendo No.1 Position


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

The Olympic Games turns into Wii Sports 2...

Brain Training was by far Game of the Week in the last Chart Track sales update from the UK, selling more copies across a seven-day period than any other in the country. However, this week the big winner is Mario & Sonic on Wii, thanks to Sega's on-going marketing campaign. The game has topped the All Formats chart, beating the No.2 game by just 330 sales units, rising 39% over last week's total (which itself had been a new record for the fastest selling Wii game over seven days

Good news! Smilie Been a while since Nintendo got anything in the top spot, even if the game isn't exactly excellent (It's still probably way better than NFS though :lolSmilie

So I wonder how long it'll be sticking around up there for? Smilie

Certainly is impressive to see a Wii game at the top...Shame it's not a Nintendo-published one. Everyone presumed Mario Galaxy would have a chance, but looks like that chance has been missed, sadly.

This all makes you wonder just who can grab that Christmas No.1, especially since the Top 5 this week were so close. Which game do people reckon can take the crown?

NFS Pro Street. It has to be.

Any reason for the sudden boost in Mario and Sonics performance over last week? More stock, promotions?

It has to be the constant TV ads finally getting to people. I wonder if it's being bundled with Wii as well, though?

And knighty, NFS does indeed have a strong chance of No.1. But it's good to see EA getting some stiff competition for a change. I thought when Brain Training topped the chart the previous week that it might stand a chance...but it took quite a knock this week.

GAME are selling special Wii bundles with Sonic & Mario. Not sure of the price though.

It's being bundled a hell of a lot. i.e. people are being forced to buy it against their will.

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

Im glad Mario and Sonics first game together got to number one, if only for a week.

I'm not, because it's not very good.

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

I know, it will make them think ":O Lets make another one"

People think they may do a 2010 Winter Olympics, but I think it will just open the way for a proper Mario and Sonic adventure game.

I'm getting a *gasp* sound. Is that onomatopoeia?
