There are now five EA Sports titles in the Top 20, encompassing boxing, golf, tennis, fitness and football. But punching people in the face is the most popular activity at the moment, as despite a 35% drop in sales, Fight Night managed to outsell Tiger Woods by a ratio of 1.64 to 1.
Activision’s movie tie-in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has a good second week, with a 30% increase in sales moving it up three places to No3. This puts it ahead of Wii Fit and UFC Undisputed, which hold their positions at No4 and No5 respectively.
There are two other new entries in the Top 10 this week, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood rides into town at No6, whilst Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince manages to conjure up a No10 positioning.
The Sims 3 drops 21% in sales, falling four places to No7, whilst another previous No1 [PROTOTYPE] drops 34% in sales, and falls six places to No8.
As Wimbledon draws to a close Sega’s Virtua Tennis 2009 (sales up 8%) remains in the top 10 at No9, while competitor Grand Slam Tennis from EA, holds onto No11.
Once again Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare At No12 outsells its own sequel World at War, despite being over eighteen months old. That fact that COD4 has a popularity and staying power not usually seen outside of a Nintendo title bodes extremely well for the upcoming Modern Warfare 2.
This weeks biggest winner is Guitar Hero: World Tour, moving up six places from No24 to No30. There are two joint biggest losers this week, with both Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training and Resident Evil 5 falling eleven places each to end up at No’s 34 and 40 respectively.
