PES 2010 Scores All Formats No1

26/Oct/2009

New All Formats No1 ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2010’ kicks ‘FIFA 10’ off the top spot and a new All Formats No2 (‘Forza Motorsport 3’, Microsoft Xbox360 only) means FIFA is down to No3 this week.


Last year ‘FIFA 10’ scored 2 weeks at No1 before conceding to PES - this year EA’s popular football franchise remained unbeaten for 3 weeks. Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2010’ doesn’t manage to match the launch of its predecessor, selling 39% less in its first week across the same formats (PS3/XB360 and PC), however it does top the PS3 Full Price Chart. In fact, PS3 appears to be more and more the format of choice for PES with 66% selling on PS3, 32% on XB360 and 2% on PC (compared to 57% PS3, 40% XB360 and 3% PC in launch week last year). Blocking PES’ shot at the top of the Xbox 360 Chart is Microsoft’s ‘Forza Motorsport 3’, topping the Xbox 360 chart and as previously mentioned, debuts at No2 in the All Formats Chart ahead of ‘FIFA 10’. Sega climb one place to No4 with ‘Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games’, positioning it ahead of 6 format newcomer ‘WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2010’ at No5.

The critically acclaimed PS3 ‘Uncharted 2: Among Thieves’ is robbed of 4 places as it slides from No2 to No6 (-53%), while 2K Games/Take 2 claim the 4th Top 10 new entry this week with ‘Borderlands’ at No7. The large number of Top 10 new entries means Nintendo find themselves down 4 places to No8 despite sales of ‘Wii Sports Resort’ rising by 3%. EA are the only publisher to have at least 2 games in the Top 10 thanks to ‘Need for Speed: Shift’ (-19%) only dropping 3 places to No9. Codemasters complete the Top 10 with ‘Operation Flashpoint: Dragon’s Rising (-60%) down from No3 to No10. Sony’s ‘EyePet’ doesn’t manage to crash the Top 10 new-entry party, debuting at No18, while bundling boosts ‘Lego Batman’ (+123%) up to No19 and ‘Pure’ (+563%) back into the Top 40 at No29.
