    Blimey, game sales at the minute must be REALLY shit if even newly-released movie tie-ins can’t beat a months old game to the top.

    @2 Dude, shitty movie tie ins sell A LOT better than you think…because 1) probably close to 90% of parents know jack shit about quality games and 2) they buy their kids whatever the hell they want, and what kids usually want is a shitty licensed movie tie in game that company’s know they don’t have to put any effort into since the name sells itself…so yeah, I believe Transformers has been top 5 (maybe top 2 or 3) since it released…

    And summer is the dry spell of the year for game releases and sales, but that’s just common knowledge…so its not some revelation that the top 10 list is not interesting whatsoever…

    I’m still surprised to see Brink in the top 10, think it’s been top 10 pretty much every week since it’s release…not bad for a mediocre shooter…but I’m happy for Splash Damage, hopefully they use that success to make Brink 2 a much more well put together and thought out game…i guess shooters always sell though, everyone knows that…
