Their unholy alliance seems to be paying off as everyone’s favourite Plumber and Hedgehog have topped the UK’s all format charts again this week. This game is proving to be a beast that will not be slain, consistently rising and falling in the charts just to climb to the top spot again. Not only is the game number one overall but first on the Wii and second on the DS charts, cementing the fact that I am the only one who finds the premise of a stunted overweight Italian posing anything that even resembles an athletic challenge to a super-sonic hedgehog ridiculous. Then again, the fact I gave time to thinking about that says something about me.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2, whilst losing the number one spot is still performing respectably in its third week. Other notable successes in this week’s chart include Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, spending a second week at number one in the PS3 charts; and SEGA who have entries in the top three on all major consoles.
