FIFA 09 Still Top of the League


‘FIFA 09’ secures a second week at No1 in the All Formats Chart with sales down 47%, but remaining in a league of its own at the top despite the appearance at No2 of ‘Lego Batman: The Videogame’ from Warner Bros.

‘Lego Batman’ is Warner’s biggest ever videogame launch, released across all 7 major formats with 22% of sales on Xbox 360, 22% on budget PS2, 20% on Wii, 17% on PS3, 12% on DS, 6% on PSP and 1% on PC. There are now 7 different publishers represented in the All Formats Top 10 with 4 titles selling best on Xbox 360, the remaining six top sellers on Wii. ‘Wii Fit’ steps up one place to No3, bouncing back after last week’s dip in stock, while ‘Star Wars: The Force Unleashed’ slips two places to No4. Ubisoft also drop two places as ‘Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway’ falls to No5, also unable to compete with newcomer ‘Lego Batman’ and Wii Fit’s 47% sales increase, despite the debut this week of a PC version at the top of the PC Full Price chart. The strong Top 10 Wii contingent is bolstered by Namco-Bandai/Atari’s ‘Family Trainer’ which breaks into the Top 10 at No9, while Top 10 regulars ‘Mario Kart Wii’ and ‘Wii Play’ remain strong at No’s 6 and 7 respectively. The All Formats Top 10 is rounded off with ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09’ down 2 places to No8 and ‘Big Beach Sports’ down from No8 to No10.
