10 years on since EA launched the first Tiger Woods game, ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09’ scores a hole-in-one, becoming the first Tiger Woods game to debut at the top of the All Formats Chart.
The popular golf game also tees off with the biggest launch week for a Tiger Woods game, launching across 5 different formats (33% of sales on XB360, 32% PS3 and 28% on Wii with the remainder on PS2 and PSP). It is EA’s 5th All Formats No1 week so far this year and their first since ‘Army of Two’ back in week 10. ‘Mario Kart Wii’ and ‘Wii Fit’ both drop one place to No’s 2 and 3 respectively, but Nintendo still have 3 games in the All Formats Top 5 as ‘Wii Play’ holds on to No5. Take 2 enjoy a sterling 2nd week of sales for the DS version of ‘Carnival: Funfair Games’, helping the party game reach its highest ever chart position – up from No6 to No4. Microsoft claim the next highest new entry with ‘Too Human’ on Xbox 360 at No8 (No1 on Xbox 360), while EA miss out on two All Formats Top 10 debuts as ‘The Sims 2: Apartment Life’ begins life at No11. Ubisoft’s ‘Scrabble Interactive: 2007 Edition’ re-enters the Top 40 at No35 thanks to a retailer ‘buy one get one free’ offer on the DS version.
