Portal 2 is Valve's First Ever All Formats No1


Valve’s First Person Puzzle Platform game, ‘Portal 2’, returns this week; materializing at the top of the charts.

It has outdone Valve’s ‘The Orange Box’ (it contained the original ‘Portal’ game) which only got to No3 and marks EA’s 5th different title at No1 so far this year.  It’s a blast from the past at No2 with Warner Bros. Interactive’s ‘Mortal Kombat’ hitting this generation’s consoles (the original game came out on consoles way back in 1993).  Thanks to price promotions Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ (+245%) resurges up the chart from No9 to No3 which means that last week’s No1 505 Games’ ‘Zumba Fitness’ (+10%) is now resting at No4.  Also forced down the chart is ‘Lego Star Wars III: The Clones Wars’ (+16%) from LucasArts now at No5, followed by Codemasters’ new entry ‘Operation Flashpoint: Red River’ at No6.  EA hold both No7 and No8 with ‘FIFA 11’ (+39%) and ‘Crysis 2’ (-2%).  Next we have Nintendo’s ‘Wii Fit Plus’ (+97%) back in the Top 10 at No9 and THQ’s ‘Homefront’ (-1%) at No10. The only other new entry in the Top 40 this week is Sony’s ‘SOCOM: Special Forces’ in at No 28.
