 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa  Leads UK For Second Week

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Leads UK For Second Week

Electronic Arts’ 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa topped UK sales rankings for the second consecutive week, as the title sold more than 1 million units in the region since its release, Chart-Track said Monday.

The game was able to fend-off the strong-selling Wii-exclusive Just Dance from Ubisoft on Chart-Track’s all-platforms chart, which lumps together unit sales of all versions of a given title. Just Dance has reached the top of the UK charts four times since its November 2009 debut.

New entries on the firm’s top 40 sales chart included Nintendo’s DS game WarioWare: D.I.Y. Sony’s November 2009 PSP game Invizimals, which uses the PSP camera to have players “capture” creatures against a real-world backdrop, re-entered the top 40 this week at number 28 thanks to promotions, Chart-Track said.

Chart-movers included Sega’s licensed movie spin-off Iron Man 2, which climbed to number 12 from number 20 a week ago, with a 58 percent rise in unit sales. Capcom’s Super Street Fighter IV, which debuted the previous week at number two, fell to number six with a 51 percent week-on-week drop.

Falling out of the top 10 from last week was Sony’s God of War Collection for PS3.
