Red Dead Holds Up Mario


Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘Red Dead Redemption’ (-34%) holds off video games legend Mario and becomes the first game of 2010 to achieve 4 consecutive weeks at No1.

It was tight at the top with just over a thousand sales between the two, but the critically acclaimed ‘Super Mario Galaxy 2’ failed to take the top spot in the All Formats chart, settling for No2.  As the World Cup begins this week EA’s tie-in ‘2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa’ (-11%) slides down to No3 followed by Nintendo’s ‘Rooms: The Main Building’ (+76%) which has jumped up the charts from No12 to No4.  Two Wii titles are next with Ubisoft’s chart regular ‘Just Dance’ (-27%) at No5 and Nintendo’s fitness sequel ‘Wii Fit Plus’ (-33%) at No6.  Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ (-27%) remains grounded at No7 for a third week in a row, with EA sim expansion ‘The Sims 3: Ambitions’ (-40%) moving down to No8.

THQ’s fighter ‘UFC 2010: Undisputed’ (-60%) takes a tumble to No9 and Nintendo’s ‘Wii Sports Resort’ (-37%) is relaxing at No10.  Outside of the Top Ten the only new entry to feature was EA’s ‘Green Day: Rock Band’ charting at No14.
