After losing out to Pokemon last week by a tiny margin, Activision’s film tie-in ‘Transformers: The Game’ takes control of top spot in the All Formats Top 40, despite a 10% drop in sales.
Pokemon Diamond’s lustre diminishes with a drop in sales of 20%, having to settle for No2, while sister-title ‘Pokemon Pearl’ manages to hold on to No3. Nintendo again dominates the All Formats Top 10, improving on last week’s 6 games with 7 thanks to the re-launch of ‘Mario Party 8’ at No9. There are now an incredible 8 games in the All Formats Top 10 that are exclusive to Nintendo’s DS and Wii formats thanks to Cooking Mama’s healthy appetite for the Top 10 (up one place to No10). ‘Resident Evil 4’ re-enters the Top 40 at No26 thanks to strong sales of the Wii version, while Sony’s ‘Singstar ‘90s’ is this week’s only Top 40 new entry at No32.
