EA’s ‘FIFA 07’ scores a second hat-trick at the top of the All Formats Chart, holding on to No1 for a third consecutive week in the face of the launch of Nintendo’s revolutionary new Wii console. With the Christmas chart only one week away, there is no change in second place as EA’s ‘Need for Speed: Carbon’ (Wii version new this week) sticks at No2. Renewed sales of the PSP and Xbox 360 versions push ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 6’ up from No4 to No3, while last week’s retailer promoted game ‘Call of Duty 3’ from Activision falls back one place to No4, despite the Wii version joining the battle this week. In total 6 out of the 14 Wii titles launched this week feature in the All Formats Top 40. Nintendo’s ‘The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess’ debuts at No5 with two thirds of new Wii owners buying a copy, while ‘Wii Play’ (only sold as part of a bundle with the Wii Remote) comes in at No9. Nintendo may occupy the top two positions in the Wii Top 10 with ‘Zelda’ and ‘Wii Play’, but all the other positions are held by third party publishers with Ubisoft leading the way thanks to ‘Red Steel’ at No3, ‘Rayman Raving Rabbids’ at No4, ‘Monster 4x4 World Circuit’ at No8 and ‘GT Pro Series’ at No9. All four All Formats Top 40 new entries are on Nintendo’s new console with exclusives ‘Red Steel’ at No19 and the multi-format ‘Rayman Raving Rabbits’ bounding in at No30. This week’s highest climber is Midway’s ‘Happy Feet’ (Wii version new this week), dancing its way up seven places from No18 to No11. The success of Microsoft’s promotional bolt-on bundles means ‘Project Gotham Racing 3’ climbs from No36 to No22, while ‘Xbox 360 Live Arcade Unplugged’ enters the Top 40 for the first time at No35. There are now 14 DS games in the All Formats Chart ,with ‘Yoshi’s Island DS’ at No36, almost doubling in sales in its second week and ‘Big Brain Academy’ re-entering at No39.
