Ubisoft put Square-Enix’s two-week run at the top of the All Formats Chart to an end as ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2’ on Xbox 360 debuts at No1, pushing ‘Final Fantasy XII’ down to No2.
The first ‘Warfighter’ game never managed to top the All Formats Chart despite selling 10,000 more units when it was released exactly one year ago. ‘Final Fantasy XII’ remains top of the PS2 Full Price Chart by a long margin despite sales dropping by over 50%. The budget priced PS2 release of ‘Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories’ propels Rockstar/Take 2’s game back into the All Formats Chart at No3 (No1 PS2 budget chart). Microsoft’s ‘Crackdown’ on Xbox 360 can’t compete with the new ‘Warfighter’, cracking under the pressure (down 3 places from No2 to No5). Sega’s ‘Sonic and the Secret Rings’ performs better, up one place to No4. At No32, Nintendo’s ‘Mario Vs Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis’ is the only other new entry in the All Formats Top 40 with new titles ‘The Fast and the Furious’ from EA/Namco Bandai only making No10 in the PS2 Full Price Chart and Atari’s ‘Bullet Witch’ only managing to conjure up No7 in the Xbox 360 Full Price Chart.
