The Forza is strong with this one


Microsoft’s ‘Forza Motorsport 2’ retains pole position in the All Formats chart for a second week with ‘Tomb Raider: Anniversary’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End’ both stuck at Nos 2 and 3 respectively with only 183 sales separating them.

Sales of ‘Forza Motorsport 2’ are down 34% on its launch week, but competitor ‘Colin McRae: Dirt’ from Codemasters cannot beat it, debuting at No4 and selling just over half of Forza’s total on Xbox 360 this week. Nintendo remain the largest represented company in the All Formats Top 10 with 3 titles – ‘Wii Play’ holding on to No5, ‘Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training’ jumping from No8 to No6, and ‘Mario Strikers Charged Football’ slipping 3 places to No9. There is only one other new release to make the All Formats Top 40 – Take 2’s multi-format ‘Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer’ entering at No8 behind another comic book film tie-in ‘Spider-Man 3’, dropping this week from No4 to No7. Competitive pricing pushes EA’s ‘Medal of Honor: Vanguard’ back into the Top 40 at No18, while ‘The History Channel: Great Battles of Rome’ from Black Bean manages to break into the Top 40 in its second week, at No34.
