EA’s ‘Medal of Honor: Airborne’ is still flying high at the top of the All Formats Chart, fighting off competition from THQ’s ‘John Woo Presents Stranglehold’ for Xbox 360 which debuts at No2 (but ahead of MoH, at No1 in the Xbox 360 Chart).
All of the three new entries that break into the All Formats Top 10 this week are exclusives released on differing formats, bringing the total of All Formats Top 10 format-exclusives up to 7. Nintendo has the next highest new entry with ‘Super Paper Mario’ on Wii at No4, while Sony’s ‘Heavenly Sword’ on PS3 begins life at No7. All three Top 10 new releases top their respective Charts. ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08’ drops one place to No3, but EA’s ‘The Sims 2: Bon Voyage’ manages to hold on to No8 for a second week. Codemasters’ ‘Colin McRae: Dirt’ re-enters the All Formats Top 40 at No11 thanks to the release of the PS3 version, while ‘Rugby 08’ enjoys a surge in sales due to the World Cup, up from No40 to No22. ‘Forza Motorsport 2’ is back in the All Formats Top 40 at No37 as a result of the launch of a new promotional Microsoft Entertainment bundle.
