Transformers can change into anything, but this week there is no change for them at the top of the All Formats Chart as ‘Transformers: The Game’ from Activision holds on for a second week.
Both Pokemon games drop 40% in sales, but ‘Pokemon Diamond’ still shines brightest as No2, while ‘Pokemon Pearl’ slips 4 places from No3 to No7. There are still 8 games which are exclusive to Nintendo formats (DS and Wii) in the All Formats Top 10, although ‘Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree’ is expelled from the Top 10, down from No7 to No16, while ‘New Super Mario Bros.’ climbs 2 places, re-entering the Top 10 at No10. ‘Mario Party 8’ is the highest All Formats Top 10 climber, up 4 places to No5 as the Italian plumber notches up 3 Top 40 games (2 of which are in the Top 10). Nintendo’s dominance is further enhanced by this week’s only All Formats Top 40 new entry, ‘Trauma Center: Second Opinion’ on Wii, while Ubisoft’s ‘Surf’s Up’ has a successful 2nd week thanks to the launch of the film, entering the Top 40 for the first time at No11.
