Kong is King of the Charts

28/Dec/2005

Ubisoft’s multi-format movie tie-in monster ‘King Kong: Official Game of the Movie’ has smashed ‘Need for Speed: Most Wanted’ off its Christmas No1 perch with EA’s racer knocked down one place to No2.


‘King Kong’ witnessed a huge 52% rise in sales over last week and in a great Christmas sales week for the French publisher, ‘Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones’ (PS2/XB/GC/PC) jumps into the Top 10, up six places from No16 to No10 - up 62% in sales. EA’s multi-format ‘FIFA 06’ also performs well over the Christmas Week, up one place from No4 to No3, while Activision’s ‘Call Of Duty 2: Big Red One’ (PS2/XB/GC) retreats one place, falling from No3 to No4 (the only Top 10 game to loose sales, down 16% on last week). Activision however are not out of bullets, with ‘Gun’ (PS2/XB/PC/XB360/GC) re-entering the Top 10, up 4 places from No13 to No9.
