Monday, 23rd November 2009 14:06 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Modern Warfare 2, unsurprisingly, still holds onto No. 1 in the UK charts this week, despite a massive 86% sales drop from it’s launch week a fortnight ago.

Assassin’s Creed II appears in at two and New Super Mario Bros for the Wii holds onto three, with Left 4 Dead 2 in at seven.

Find the full top ten below. Last week’s data, including MW2 selling 1.7 million, is here.

    Now, there’s a shock.

    Shameful that Uncharted 2 has disappeared from there already. A much better game than MW2.

    Left 4 Dead 2 @ #7 lol figures.. gamers aren’t as dumb as you think Valve, everyone realizes that garbage is barely worth calling an Expansion Pack let ALONE being a “New” game to warrant being 60 bucks.

    I miss the days of Expansion Packs, but seems those days are long dead with the game industry scrounging like rabid animals for every penny and release a new campaign as a wohle new game.. rofl.

    I think a lot of people are still cautious of ACII after the burn of AC.

    I think it will sell well in the long run, but a lot of peeps will be waiting for a price drop before they buy.

    I don’t necessarily think that AC2 has done badly, you just can’t compete with the behemoth that is MW2. Whoever you are.

    I can see that Left 4 Dead 2 is being published by EA. Does anyone know anything about this connection between EA and Valve?

    I wouldn’t personally say that Left 4 Dead 2 is an EA game but they must be making some money as the publisher. Please comment if anyone as some inside information about this?

    I agree with you Eregol, Uncharted 2 kicks MW2′s sorry ass. Shame that it goes by largely unnoticed by lots of gamers. They don’t know what they’re missing out on. Oh well, their loss!

    @5, Valve are the publishers, EA distribute.

    Uncharted 2 has sold 1m worldwide so far not bad as its a sequel to a game that was ignored by everyone

    Uncharted was hardly ignored by everyone, it sold around 3 million in total.

    On the other hand, rather expected chart to be honest. I’d expect CoD and ACII to be miles ahead of the competition in sales.

    @7 No, EA is publishing Left 4 Dead 2 like they also did with Left 4 Dead. I did some research and found the information on Gamasutra but their partnership isn’t described very clearly.

    Perhaps you’re confusing the roles of Publisher and Distributor, Valve Published both L4D 1+2, EA Distributes them.
