Mass Effect 2 enjoys effective debut in UK



Mass Effect 2 has warped to the top of Chart-Track's UK sales chart, revealing that Britain isn't just about Just Dance (which still stepped its way into second place, by the way). Comparing debut weeks, the Normandy crew's second outing sold twice as well on Xbox 360 than the original did back in 2007 and three times higher on PC. EA is expecting a good financial return from Mass Effect 2, having already shipped 2 million copies.

Taking the bronze this week on the all-formats chart is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and in fourth is ... MAG. Yes, coverage of the PS3-exclusive may have been totally eclipsed by BioWare's space opera, but it still managed a strong debut.  The rest of the list features the usual suspects, though Dragon Age: Origins has made a return to the top 40. It seems Mass Effect 2 wasn't the only BioWare game casting a spell over consumers last week.

UK All Formats Chart (Top 10)

1.   MASS EFFECT 2
2.   JUST DANCE
3.   CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2
4.   MAG
5.   WII SPORTS RESORT
6.   WII FIT PLUS
7.   FIFA 10
8.   NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. WII
9.   ARMY OF TWO: THE 40TH DAY
10. JAMES CAMERON'S AVATAR: THE GAME

MW2 was world's best-seller in 2009

Activision's Modern Warfare 2 has predictably been crowned the best selling game of 2009, in the world.

Infinity Ward's shooter sold a massive 11.86m units, comprised of 8.82m US sales, 2.80m UK sales and 237,500 Japanese sales.

The rest of the top five was dominated by Nintendo, according to correlated NPD, GfK Chart-Track and Enterbrain figures.

Wii Sports Resort managed a global 7.57m units (4.54m US/1.54m Japan/1.49m UK), followed closely by New Super Mario Bros. Wii with 7.41m units sold (4.23m US/2.49m Japan/687,300 UK).

Wii Fit Plus was next with 5.8m (3.53m US/1.30m Japan/968,300 UK) and comfortably ahead of older sibling Wii Fit with 5.44m (3.60m US/1.25m UK/588,300 Japan).

In general, these three regions sold 8 per cent less software than in 2008 - the UK had the largest fall (14 per cent) and Japan the lowest (2 per cent). Part of that is attributed to PS2, software sales for which fell at least 50 per cent in each region.

UK charts: Bad Company 2 dominates

EA's newcomer Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has topped the UK All-Formats chart.

Xbox 360 claimed most sales (53 per cent), followed by PS3 (31 per cent) and then PC (16 per cent). The latter number is likely to be higher in reality as digital sales are not counted.

The other new entries in the top 40 were Supreme Commander 2 in 23rd and the PC edition of Assassin's Creed II, which boosted the multiplatform game to 14th.

Ubisoft's Wii champion Just Dance was in second, Aliens vs. Predator in third, Heavy Rain in fourth and Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing in fifth.

Wii Fit Plus, Modern Warfare 2, Wii Sports Resort, FIFA 10 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii rounded out the top 10.

1     Battlefield: Bad Company 2  (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
2    Just Dance     (Wii)
3    Aliens vs. Predator  (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
4    Heavy Rain     (PS3)
5    SONIC & SEGA All-Stars Racing  (DS, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)
6    Wii Fit Plus     (Wii)
7    Modern Warfare 2  (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
8    Wii Sports Resort     (Wii)
9    FIFA 10  (PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)
10    New Super Mario Bros. Wii  (Wii)

I've only played 3 or 4 of the Final Fantasy games, FF7 being my favourite, not in any rush to play the new one.

There are two films, this one while technically awesome, sucks.  This one, however, I really enjoyed, theres even a nod to FF7 in a ringtone in the movie  :)

Add Beyond Good & Evil & Ico to that list too, both fantastic games, both sold very poorly, both Shenmue games too  :)
