Gran Turismo stays in All Formats driving seat


Sony’s ‘Gran Turismo 5: Prologue’ races to a second week at No1 in the All Formats Chart despite a 40% drop in sales. This week Sony’s title accounts for 39% of all PS3 sales, but only 28% of all PS3 software revenue.

The Olympic flame is still burning strongly for Sega’s ‘Mario and Sonic’, up one place to No2, while Ubisoft’s ‘Rainbow Six: Vegas 2’ is on a losing streak with sales falling for a second week, down 43%. The Wii version of ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2008’ scores a strong second week with sales of the first version of a PES game in the UK on a Nintendo home console up 34%, helping Konami hold on to No4 in the All Formats Top 40. Sega have the largest number of Top 10 All Formats titles this week with 3 - ‘Mario & Sonic’ joined by newcomer ‘Condemned 2’ on Xbox 360 (67%) and PS3 (33%) at No5 and ‘Viking: Battle for Asgard’, up from No9 to No7. Sega’s presence continues into the Top 20 with ‘Sega Superstars Tennis’ at No12 and ‘The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return’ at No17 while there is no room for EA in the All Formats Top 10 with ‘FIFA 08’ now their top selling game at No14. Nintendo manage to gain a foothold in the All Formats Top 10 as both ‘Wii Play’ and ‘Brain Training’ bounce back into the Top 10 at No’s 8 and 9 respectively. The only other new entry this week is ‘Dark Sector’ from D3P, debuting at No11 (No6 in the PS3 Chart and No4 on Xbox 360).
