UK charts: Modern Warfare 2 disappears from top ten, Toy Story 3 takes biscuit

Monday, 26th July 2010 10:17 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Now here’s something you don’t see every day: Modern Warfare 2 not being in the top ten of the UK charts.

The Infinity Ward shooter charted this week at number 11, down two from nine.

It’s actually the second time since its release 37 weeks ago that it’s appeared outside the top ten. We’re just getting the date on the other time for you now.

Before that, it had a massive nine week reign as number one, selling 1.7 million units in launch week in the UK last November, as well as taking last year’s Christmas number one.

As for this week’s numero uno, that goes to Toy Story 3, followed by Red Dead Redemption, Dance on Broadway, Lego: Harry Potter and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11.

Full top ten’s below. All without MW2. Last week’s data is here.

  1. Toy Story 3 (Disney Interactive Studio, Disney)
  2. Red Dead Redemption (Rockstar San Diego, Rockstar)
  3. Dance on Broadway (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)
  4. Lego: Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (TT Games, Warner Bros Interactive)
  5. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (EA Sports, EA)
  6. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Nintendo, Nintendo)
  7. 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa (EA Sports, EA)
  8. Just Dance (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)
  9. Dragon Quest IX (Square Enix, Nintendo)
  10. Crackdown 2 (Ruffian Games, Microsoft Games Studios)

    Apparently it’s about to overtake Brain Training as the UK’s best-selling game of all time.

    Loving Toy Story 3 at the top. It’s actually a cracker of a game. Best ‘kids’ (hate using that term) game I’ve played in ages.

    Dragon Quest has had quote a big TV advertising push recently though hasn’t it. Might explain it’s appearance here.

    I think we’re moving onto Toy Story 3 after we finally get 100% on Lego: Harry Potter. The chances of me ever finishing Red Dead Redemption are riding off into the sunset…

    Dance on Broadway?! Really United Kingdom? Really?

    That is one gay nation. Add this to the obsessive teadrinking, and well…

    All those numbers mean that MW2 is certainly in ‘good company‘ *ahem* as far as sales are concerned.

    It’s a pretty rubbish top ten in my opinion, the only game I like there is Red Dead.
