UK charts: God of War III reigns supreme as number one

Monday, 22nd March 2010 10:18 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Kratos has slayed the beast that is Final Fantasy XIII and taken God of War III to number one in this week’s UK charts.

The Sony Santa Monica epic becomes the second number one this year for Sony after success with Heavy Rain – Killzone 2 give the firm its only number one last year.

It also outsold God of War II for PS2 by a ratio of 2:1.

FFXIII landed at three this week, although it still remains the fastest selling title in the UK this year. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 maintains its spot at two.

As for other new entries, Metro 2033 entered at five and Dragon Age: Origins expansion Awakening missed the top ten at 11.

Top ten below. Last week’s data is here.

    With respect to Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain’s got better legs then that: it’s stayed in the top ten longer then UC2.

    Congrats to God of War! I have to admit to being a little surprised that Final Fantasy managed to outsell it 3:1, though. That’s just… odd.

    @Johnny Cullen
    It’s a bit early for that sort of comparison. Time in the top ten is a fairly misleading stat too. Actual numbers sold and how those translate into chart position is very dependent on what else is released at the same time and subsequent weeks. Uncharted 2 has stayed top 40 for a very long time (since release?) and gone up and down in the charts during that time too.

    I think that’s the lowest that I’ve seen MW2 since release.

    Goodness! Heavy Rain still holding on… That’s almost a month in the top ten now!

    Surely it’s one of the PS3s most successful games?

    That’s the first time that FIFA’s dropped out of the top ten since release, too.

    Excellent news. Such a blinding game. Pats on backs for all involved
