Forums - Sales Discussion - UK Charts, week ending 6th Jan

If EA’s New Years resolution was to claim the Top 3 games in the All Formats Chart, the giant US publisher has succeeded in week 1 with ‘FIFA 07’ kicking off 2007 at No1, followed by ‘Need For Speed: Carbon’ at No2 and ‘The Sims 2: Pets’ up one place to No3. Every game in the All Formats Top 40 drops in sales with the seasonal post-Christmas decline accompanied by no significant new releases. Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 6’ slips from No2 to No4, while the heavily promoted ‘Canis Canem Edit’ chalks up its joint highest All Formats chart position, up 3 places to No5. EA is the only publisher to have more than one game in the All Formats Top 10 with THQ’s ‘WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2007’ knocked out of the Top 10 from No6 to No11, while their game ‘Cars’ shifts from No10 to No7. ‘Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy’ and ‘New Super Mario Bros.’ re-enter the Top 10 at Nos 8 and 9 respectively. The remainder of the chart pack gets shuffled this week with ‘Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party’ coming up trumps as the highest Top 40 climber, up from No39 to No23. 1 1 FIFA 07 EA CANADA EA SPORTS ELECTRONIC ARTS 3 2 NEED FOR SPEED: CARBON EA CANADA EA GAMES ELECTRONIC ARTS 4 3 THE SIMS 2: PETS MAXIS EA GAMES ELECTRONIC ARTS 2 4 PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 6 KONAMI DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT KONAMI KONAMI 8 5 CANIS CANEM EDIT ROCKSTAR VANCOUVER ROCKSTAR TAKE 2 5 6 CALL OF DUTY 3 TREYARCH ACTIVISION ACTIVISION 10 7 CARS RAINBOW STUDIOS THQ THQ 14 8 LEGO STAR WARS II: THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY TRAVELLER'S TALES LUCASARTS LUCASARTS 15 9 NEW SUPER MARIO BROS.
