UK Charts: Gran Turismo 5 crashes into first

PS3 exclusives often find it very difficult to take the top slot, so there's reason to celebrate in the Sony camp today. Long-awaited racer Gran Turismo 5 has easily seized first place in the UK Chart. Looks like that century of development paid off.  There isn't really much else of note this week, so just read below for the usual chart listings.

UK Charts: Black Ops on top ... as if it wouldn't be

You all know the drill by now. A new Call of Duty is released, and promptly sits on top of the UK chart for six months as I struggle each week to come up with a new headline. Considering how crap this week's headline is, it's...

UK Charts: Black Ops sales refuse to lag

Call of Duty: Black Ops released last week and, as you might expect, they now defiantly stand at the top of the UK Charts. At least that's one way in which the game doesn't lag. Kinect Sports also appears to have done quite w...

UK Charts: Football, football, football, FOOTBALL!

Fable III enjoyed a single week at the top of the chart before the inevitable happened. Lionhead's "amazing" role playing game has been shunted into third place by a pair of football games, with Football Manager 2011 taking f...

UK Charts: Race cars are better than Halo

After only one week atop the UK Chart, Halo: Reach has been shunted into second place by F1 2010, proving that Britain's love for sport of any description displaces what Microsoft has erroneously called the "biggest" shooter ...

UK Charts: Halo: Reach edges out Sports Champions

Unsurprisingly, Halo: Reach has ascended to the top of the charts, followed closely by PlayStation Move "launch" title Sports Champions. Mafia II has been knocked down to third place after enjoying quite a nice little run at ...

UK Charts: Mafia II refuses to die

Mafia II is enjoying its third week at the top of the UK Charts, which is somewhat surprising given the fact that so many gamers felt tepid towards it. Still, if these charts are good for one thing, it's reminding the gaming ...

UK Charts: Mafia II is riding high

Mafia II is sitting atop the UK Charts like the beast of Bald Mountain, looking down on its thralls and pretenders with lofty contempt. This is the second week in a row that 2K's crime-em-up has been top dog, putting Kane &am...

UK Charts: Kane & Lynch 2 is top dog

There truly is no accounting for taste.  Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days sits atop the UK Chart this week, debuting in the top position. Cue mass hysteria over a spreading pandemic as parents don't realize why their childre...

UK Charts: Toy Story 3 again

This week's UK Chart listing is the most boring one ever. Almost nothing of interest happened, with Toy Story 3 back on top, Red Dead Redemption still hanging around, and most of Ubisoft's dancing crap polluting the world. Bo...

UK Charts: Modern Warfare 2 gets massive spike

Toy Story 3 is back on top, having shunted Starcraft 2 down several pegs. However, it's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that is winning attention, since it manages to jump from eighth place to second in just one week. The cont...

UK Charts: StarCraft II, obviously

It will come as a surprise to absolutely nobody that StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is soaring atop the chart this week, demolishing the competition and leaving bloody carcasses of spoiled hopes in its hype-drenched wake. Sta...

UK Charts: Toy Story 3 is good lucky number one fortune

Crackdown 2 has seen a steep decline this week, enjoying a sheer drop from number one to number ten, pushing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 out of the top ten where it usually resides. While MW2 has been put into the eleventh...

UK Charts: Crackdown 2 still beating the odds

Between Crackdown 2 and APB, I'd say I'm not welcome in Dundee. Not that it matters for at least one of those games, since Crackdown 2 is still kicking ass in the sales department. Who needs to be good when you can sell to th...

UK Charts: Crackdown 2 hits the top

Well, that was unexpected.  Crackdown 2 has demonstrated that it doesn't need a Halo beta in order to sell copies, with the Ruffian-developed sequel debuting at number one in the UK. I thought the game wasn't v...

UK Charts: Harry Potters and Ghost Warriors

Oh sure, Daniel Radcliffe looks "cute" now, but just take a real good look at him. I give him fifteen more years before he looks like a pedophile.  So, unsurprisingly, Lego Harry Potter is at the top of the chart. My own...
