Sega’s latest edition to their football franchise ‘Football Manager 2010’ manages to hold off Nintendo’s fitness sequel ‘Wii Fit Plus’, in at No2, to claim the top spot this week.
Proving that football in the UK is just as popular in pixel form, three of the top five games are football related, the second being EA’s FIFA 10 (+3%) which keeps its position at No3 while Microsoft’s ‘Forza Motorsport 3’ (-29%) moves down the grid to No4. The third football game, Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2010’ (-54%), has been relegated from No1 to No5, followed at No6 by Take 2 with new entry ‘Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City’. Sega have a second title in the Top 10 with ‘Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games’ (-34%) at No7, and Namco Bandai’s new addition to their fighting franchise ‘Tekken 6’ punches in at No8. Take 2 and 2K Games’ ‘Borderlands’ (-10%) moves down to No9 and Nintendo’s ‘Wii Sports Resort’ rounds off the Top 10 at No10. The only other new release in the Top 40 is Activision Blizzard’s new IP ‘DJ Hero’ which charts at No20.
