This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written Monday, July 12, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Well, we have to admit that given its somewhat lukewarm reception, we didn't think Crackdown 2 would be topping the charts this week, which just goes to show that you can never underestimate the irresistible power of collecting glowing green agility orbs.
So, Red Dead Redemption drops into second position for the first time since its May release, witn Crackdown 2 ending a long reign at the top. Further down the charts meanwhile, Singularity drops out of the top 20 once again, just as we thought word of mouth might have kept it rising (it's supposed to be fairly decent, you know), and Forza 3 takes its place proving that it has the horsepower to keep on going.
And Naughty Bear starts to plummet as punters realise that while it looks all cute and fluffy, it's actually pretty awful. Also, with the World Cup now at an end, and Spain winning the tournament (as predicted by Paul, the psychic octopus), how long will the FIFA tie-in title stay in the top three? Who can tell? Perhaps a psychic octopus?
Next week - Toy Story 3 pops out of its box and into the middle of the charts somewhere. Maybe.
