Sega's retro Sonic collection halts NFS's run at the top

05/Feb/2005

Sega’s ‘Sonic Mega Collection Plus’ (PS2/XB) zooms into the All Formats Top 40 at No1, overtaking EA’s ‘Need For Speed: Underground 2’ which makes way, falling to No2.


Sega now have 3 games in the All Formats Top 10 with their next-gen Sonic title ‘Sonic Heroes’ holding strong at No8 and ‘Football Manager 2005’ at No9. EA now have 2 football games in the All Formats Top 10 thanks to the new entry of ‘UEFA Champions League 2004-2005’ (PS2/XB/PC/GC) at No10 and ‘FIFA 2005’ sticking to the No6 spot, meaning the football genre now accounts for a total of 4 Top 10 games. There are 4 other new entries in the All Formats Top 40 Chart: Capcom’s gory ‘Shadow of Rome’ (PS2-only) at No11, Microsoft’s ‘Mech Assault 2: Lone Wolf’ (XB-only) at No12, the multi-format ‘The Spongebob Squarepants Movie’ at No18 and the impressive online superhero RPG from NCSoft ‘City of Heroes’ (PC) debuting at No32.
