UK PS3/360 Charts: Week Ending 17th Oct

What a week! We’ve had one of the most hotly anticipated games of recent memory released this week; we’ve got (so-called) actors getting in on the gaming action and we have some old friends come to visit the chart.

UK PS3 Chart: Week ending 17th October:

Bet you can’t guess what’s at number one? Ah, who am I kidding; it is of course the awesome, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. This is no surprise but I can also reveal that in America, it has become the 3rd fastest selling PS3 game ever. Early figures are showing that by the end of week one, Drake’s newest adventure will hit 1 Million units sold, which will make it the 4th fastest selling PS3 game Worldwide. 1 Million in a week! Well done Drake and I tip my hat to you, Naughty Dog. The first person to mention Halo and its sales gets a slap!

In other chart news: smug-face clown boy, Jack Black (as you can tell, I am a real fan) has added to Brtal Legend’s success with it entering the charts at number 6. Also new this week is Fallout 3: GOTY Edition; I like to think that this had something to do with it! ‘Batman Watch’  – The PS3 version hits number 8 but I think you will all be interested to know that Batman: Arkham Asylum has shifted over 2.5 Million units in a month! Nice one Rocksteady, good to see a UK company getting up there with the big dogs.

UK 360 Chart: Week Ending 17th October:

So, in the absence of anything remotely ‘Drake’ associated, what has been getting the 360 stirred up? FIFA 10 scores number 1 again; that’s 3 weeks in a row for those of you who are counting. Brutal Legend is the XBox’s highest new entry, in at number 4 and Fallout 3 GOTY Edition also enters the 360 charts, one place below its PS3 version, at number 6. Award for longest game name goes to Star Wars: Clone Wars – Republic Heroes, which jumps into the chart from number 11 to number 9.

360 1710

Interesting Note: If you look at this week’s charts in an ‘all-format’ way, FIFA 10 has sold so well in its 3 weeks since release that it would be sitting at number 1 with Uncharted 2 sitting directly below it. The surprise of the ‘all-format’ chart would be that Halo 3: ODST has been outsold by Brutal Legend and numerous Wii titles to take 9th place.
