This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written Monday, January 10, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
With FIFA 11 continuing to reign supreme at the top of the all-format charts, it also finally does the unthinkable, and knocks the almighty Call of Duty: Black Ops from its long-held place at number one.
This is probably thanks in no small part to some quite bargainous sale prices on EA's footy title and with Black Ops retaining its hefty price tag, it was perhaps only a matter of time before the January sales caused it to drop. Seeing Treyarch's FPS opus on sale pre-owned for £45 actually makes us feel a bit queasy, so presumably it has the same effect on other discerning consumers too.
Kinect Sports continues to perform solidly, while Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood holds fast at number 5, when really it ought to be a bit higher in the charts. That said, it's in good company with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit helping to make up a quite stellar top 5.
Fitness games also make a strong showing this week, with Your Shape continuing to climb, while EA Sports Active 2 jumps 13 places following massive promotion on TV. The Biggest Loser also jumps into the top 20 this week, meaning that gamers everywhere are trying to get their flabby asses into shape. Kudos!
