‘Toy Story 3’ keeps the dream alive for Disney as it holds on to top spot in the All Formats Entertainment Software Chart for another week.
Sales are down 17%, but the popular film tie-in still claims a total of 3 weeks at No1, which is more than any other Disney published title has ever achieved. In fact, so far this year only ‘2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa’, ‘Red Dead Redemption’ and ‘Just Dance’ have stayed longer at No1. We’re going to have to wait another week before Modern Warfare 2 (-41%) surpasses Brain Training as the biggest selling game ever in UK: Activision Blizzard’s hugely successful shooter plummets from No2 to No8, leaving it tantalisingly close to what would be an awesome achievement considering it was only released 40 weeks ago. ‘Red Dead Redemption’ (-9%) climbs 3 places to No2, moving ahead of ‘Dance On Broadway’ (-22%), which stages another week at No3. ‘Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4’ (-8%) also manages a healthy climb up the charts, moving 4 places from No8 to No4. Nintendo’s heavily advertised ‘Art Academy’ leaps to No5 thanks to a 205% jump in sales propelling it from its debut position of No28.
EA’s ‘Madden NFL 11’ is this week’s only chart newcomer, entering at No10 – slightly below ‘Madden NFL 10’ which debuted at No8, but not bad considering it’s only on Xbox 360 and PS3, while NFL 10 was also released on Wii.
