With the latest Harry Potter film now on general release, no surprise then that EA’s ‘Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix’ weaves its spell with a third consecutive week at No1, although sales are down 11% over last week.
Nintendo’s DS ‘More Brain Training from Dr. Kawashima’ (-17%) remains at No2 with Activision holding at No3 for a third week in a row with ‘Shrek The Third’, although sales have dropped 28% from last week’s high point. Nintendo climb 2 places to No4 with ‘Wii Play’, ever the barometer of healthy Wii hardware sales thanks to the inclusion of an essential purchase for Wii gamers - an extra Wii Remote. Nintendo debut at No5 with Wii ‘Mario Party 8’ although with a product recall in progress, it remains to be seen what happens next week to sales and chart position. The only other ‘new’ entry actually debuted the week before, but Midway now break in to the Top 40 with their second DS title (after ‘Happy Feet’ last year) – ‘Touchmaster’ the mini-game puzzler is at No29.
