The force is strong in Lucasarts with ‘Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy’ battling off competition from Eidos, EA and Codemasters to remain No1 for a second week (despite a drop in sales of 49%).
Eidos come the closest to capturing the No1 crown, debuting at No2 in the All Formats Chart with ‘Just Cause’ and claiming No1 in the Xbox and Xbox 360 charts. EA’s ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07’ tees off at No3, while Codemasters gets their first cap with ‘LMA Manager 2007’ new at No4. Xbox 360 exclusives ‘Dead Rising’ and ‘Saints Row’ get buried under the new entries, both slipping 5 places to No7 and No8 respectively. ‘Cars’ from THQ only reverses back one place to No5, while Nintendo’s ‘Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training’ continues to work those little grey cells, a non-mover at No6. EA joins THQ and Nintendo with 2 games in the All Formats Top 10 thanks to the release of ‘The Godfather’ on Xbox 360 and PSP pushing the mafia movie license up from No24 to No9. Six of the Top 10 All Formats games are now available on Xbox 360 despite Atari’s Xbox 360 game ‘Test Drive: Unlimited’ putting on the breaks, down from No5 to No14 and the release of ‘Tiger Woods PGA 07’ on Xbox 360 not due until late October. The release of a new Xbox 360, Project Gotham Racing 3 and wireless controller bundle means a Top 40 re-entry for ‘PGR3’ at No26.
