Lucky XIII for Square-Enix

15/Mar/2010

A week on from yet another fastest selling game of the year so far and the record has yet again been smashed – Square Enix’s ‘Final Fantasy XIII’ debuts at No1 on 360/PS3, split 54% PS3 and 46% 360.


The last Final Fantasy title to reach No1 was actually ‘Final Fantasy XII’, back in week 8, 2007 although this was only released on PS2.  Last week’s record breaker, EA’s ‘Battlefield: Bad Company 2’ drops to No2 (-38%) and Ubisoft drop one place to No3 with ‘Just Dance’ on Wii (-9%).  Sony’s ‘Heavy Rain’ on PS3 (-8%) remains at No4 and Nintendo’s ‘Wii Fit Plus’ climbs one place to No5 (+11%).  Also climbing one place is Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ at No6 (+2%) – the title also climbs one place in the all-time All Formats total UK market unit sellers, finally outpacing Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘GTA: San Andreas’ to claim second place, behind the UK’s biggest selling game of all time, ‘Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training’ on DS.

Also of note this week is the release of the third game in the Ben 10 series – D3P/Namco Bandai’s ‘Ben 10: Alien Force – Vilgax Attacks’ which debuts at No13 over 5 formats.  Debuting right behind at No14 is THQ’s ‘Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Chaos Rising’.  Further down the Top 40 we also have Sega’s ‘Yakuza 3’ on PS3 debuting at No24.  Disney’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ makes an appearance at No34 having been released last week and Sega’s ‘Sonic Classic Collection’ on DS is new at No35.
