Dead Space 2 remains top of the UKIE/GFK Chart-Track All formats top 40 for the second week in a row.
As reported on the Train2Game blog, EA’s survival horror made its chart debut last Monday, and a second week of strong sales sees it remain Number 1. FIFA 11 is also still selling strongly and once again holds onto second place in what is its 19th consecutive week in the UKIE chart. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood moves up the table once again to take Number 3.
Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops shows that there’s still life in the shooter yet – despite a complete lack of pricediscounting – by moving one place up to fifth. It’s Black Ops 13th week in the top ten. Meanwhile, LittleBigPlanet 2 drops down to No.5, two weeks after it claimed top spot when released.
There’s no change at 6 and 7 with Just Dance 2 and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit both non-movers, while Art Academy for the Nintendo DS climbs one to No.8. The Sims 3 re-enters the top ten in ninth spot while Wii-Fit Plus drops to tenth.
Nintendo titles Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini Land Mayhem and Mario Sports Mix enter the UKIE/GFK-Chart Track All Formats Top 40 in 11th and 12th places, with the only other new entry being The Sims 3 expansion Outdoor Living Stuff.
The full UKIE/GFK Chart Track All formats top ten or the week ending February 5th is therefore as follows:
1. Dead Space 2 (EA)
2. FIFA 11 (EA Sports)
3. Assassins Creed: Brotherhood (Ubisoft)
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision)
5. LittleBigPlanet 2 (Sony)
6. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft)
7. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (EA)
8. Art Academy (Nintendo)
9. The Sims 3 (EA)
10. Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo)
So Train2Game, are you at all surprised to see Dead Space 2 hold onto No.1 for the second week in a row? With arguably no major releases this week, could EA’s shooter stay on top for a third consecutive week? Or can FIFA 11 re-take No. 1 in its 20th week in the chart?
