Need for Speed Shift speeds its way to the top

Need for Speed Shift just recently released, but that doesn’t stop it from getting to the top of the charts in the UK. EA’s latest iteration in the franchise has been received with accolades from all over, so we do understand why it’s got the #1 spot and why EA is so happy about that. It surpassed the likes of Guitar Hero 5, Colin McRae DiRT 2 and the record-winning Batman: Arkham Asylum, pushing them all down a notch.

Wii Sports Resort and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 were the only games that managed to keep up with the pace, both of them climbing a spot and grabbing a tight hold of it. At least, until next week, when we’ll hopefully see NFS Shift hanging on to the top. It deserves the acclaim.
