Lego is the star

18/Sep/2006

The All Formats galaxy has a new master as ‘Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy’ from Lucasarts forces its way from No3 to No1. The PS2 version achieves the second largest sales week of any Lucasarts game (behind ‘Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith’) and becomes the 10th Star Wars game to feature at No1 in the history of the All Formats Chart.


Capcom’s ‘Dead Rising’ sinks down to No2 while fellow Xbox 360 exclusives ‘Saints Row’ (14,518) and ‘Test Drive Unlimited’ also drop one place, falling to No3 and No5 respectively. DS owners can’t stop training their brains with this week’s sums adding up to a jump of 4 places from No10 to No6 for Nintendo’s ‘Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training’ thanks to renewed advertising. The original ‘Lego Star Wars’ creeps back into the Top 10 for the first time for over a year, benefiting from the new DVD release of the first Star Wars trilogy films. Sony knocks itself off the top of the PSP Chart with ‘Tekken: Dark Resurrection’ entering the PSP arena at No1 and debuting at No12 in the All Formats Chart ahead of PSP stable mate ‘Gangs of London’ which slips from No11 to No13. The number of Gangster themed games grows to 7 in the All Formats Top 40 thanks to the release of Sega’s ‘Yakuza’, new at No20. Retailer promotions lead to re-entries for ‘X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse’ at No22 and ‘Tom Clancy’s Advanced Warfighter’ at No25. Namco Bandai Games have a second new release after ‘Tekken: Dark Resurrection’ thanks to ‘Ace Combat: The Belkan War’ debuting at No31, while THQ increase their chart presence with the latest in the classic graphic adventure franchise ‘Broken Sword: The Angel of Death’, new at No33.
