UK Sales Chart – Week ending 5th September

Bruce Wayne’s alter-ego holds tight to the number 1 spot for a second week. He’s holding tight with his legs. Because he’s hanging upside down. Because he’s a bat. Well, he’s a man dressed as a bat. A Batman so to speak.

Sales of the highly-acclaimed comic book hero game have only dropped 27% since its launch week, with the PS3 version gaining ground on the 360 version thanks to bundles and the launch of the new cheaper PS3 Slim.
PS3 bundles have also had a surprising effect on the Top 10 this week, with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare sales increasing by 128%, pushing it up six places to No.3. This is its highest chart position for almost 1 and a half years.

Sales increases to PS3 versions have also pushed Fight Night Round 4 up 68% and three places to No.9. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 moved up one place to No.7, sales up 38%.

There’s still room in the top 10 for two new entries, with WW2 flight game IL2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey at No.6 and PSP-fighter Dissidia: Final Fantasy at No.10.

Two other new games have appeared in the Top 40 this week too. Champions Online represents PC gaming at No.16, and Metroid Prime: Trilogy represents some good value on the Wii at No.38.

Madden NFL falls out of the Top 40 in just less than a month since it launched at No.7. And Killzone 2 re-appears in the Top 40, again thanks to the launch of the PS3 Slim.

The biggest climber this week is FIFA 09 moving up nine places to No.25. The biggest loser is [PROTOTYPE], which falls twelve places to No.26.
