UK Sales Chart – Week ending 23rd August

The top four games actually stay the same as last week. With Nintendo dominating the top of the charts as usual. Olympic fever is still very much present in this week’s chart as Beijing and Mario & Sonic hold onto third and fourth places respectively.

1. Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo)
2. Wii Fit (Nintendo)
3. Beijing 2008 (Eurocom Entertainment)
4. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Sega)
5. Wall·E (Helixe)
6. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (Neversoft)
7. Guitar Hero: On Tour (Vicarious Visions)
8. Lego Indiana Jones: Original Adventures (Traveller’s Tales)
9. Soul Caliber IV (Namco)
10. Battlefield: Bad Company (Digital Illusions)
11. Grand Theft Auto IV (Rockstar North)
12. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Sora Ltd.)
13. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Infinity Ward)
14. Kung Fu Panda (Vicarious Visions)
15. Madden NFL 09 (EA Tiburon)
16. Mario Kart DS (Nintendo)
17. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Konami Digital)
18. New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo)
19. Race Driver: GRID (Codemasters)
20. My Health Coach: Manage Your Weight (Ubisoft Montreal)

The biggest mover in this week’s chart is actually My Health Coach, which saw a huge sales surge last week and jumped sixteen places to just make it back into the top 20.

Grand Theft Auto IV also had an improvement in sales, possibly because of mumblings across the interwebs about the forthcoming Downloadable Content.

Some poor deluded consumers still haven’t realised that Wall·E the game doesn’t live up to the movie version and have kept this disc-shaped pain-inducer in the top 5.

Madden NFL sales dropped slightly since its release last week. Check back shortly for DarkZero’s verdict on whether this will be the year you start caring about American Football.
