The first week of 2010 shows no change at the top with Activision Blizzard taking a 9th consecutive week at No1 with ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ (-41%).
The title is currently the 3rd biggest game ever in terms of UK history unit sell-through – it actually managed this feat last week, so after just 8 weeks on sale. For the record the current No1 is Nintendo’s ‘Dr Kawashima’ on DS, released in June 2006 and No2 is Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘GTA San Andreas’, initially released on PS2 in November 2004 (Xbox and PC in 2005). Back to the present and Nintendo’s ‘Wii Fit Plus’ climbs 3 places to No2 (-43%), Ubisoft’s Wii ‘Just Dance’ climbs 4 places to a best-ever position at No3 (-41%) and Nintendo remain at No4 with ‘Wii Sports Resort’ (-54%). There are only 2 new entries this week and both make the Top 10, starting with Sega’s ‘Bayonetta’ (360/PS3) at No5. The other is THQ’s ‘Darksiders’ (360/PS3) debuting at No8.
