Fight Night Runs Rings Around Tiger

06/Jul/2009

‘Fight Night Round 4’ is the champion of the All Formats Chart for a second week as another EA Sports title ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10’ fails to land the knockout blow, debuting at No2.


There are now 5 EA Sports games in the All Formats Top 20 covering boxing, golf, tennis, fitness and football. However, it is ‘Fight Night Round 4’ which is proving by far the most popular and despite a 35% drop in sales it still manages to outsell Tiger Woods (new this week on PS3, XB360, Wii MotionPlus, PSP and PS2) by 1.64 to 1. Activision’s ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ (+30%) shifts up from No6 to No3 in its second week of release, ahead of ‘Wii Fit’ (-2%) and ‘UFC 2009: Undisputed’ (-3%) both non-movers at No’s 4 and 5 respectively. There are a total of 3 new games in the All Formats Top 10 with Ubisoft’s ‘Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood’ riding into town at No6 and ‘EA’s ‘Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince’ conjuring up a modest debut at No10. ‘The Sims 3’ (-21%) falls 4 places to No7, while another previous All Formats No1, Activision’s ‘Prototype’ (-34%) also drops, slipping 6 places to No8. As Wimbledon draws to a close Sega’s ‘Virtua Tennis 2009’ (+8%) remains in the Top 10 at No9, while competitor ‘Grand Slam Tennis’ (+6%) from EA, holds on to No11.
