It's ruling the amazon charts for weeks now, which makes its absence in the overall charts even more puzzling. I don't think there are supply issues, though.

Drop for HotDOverkill in combined chart, but it's holding on to its position in the Wii only chart. Nice work, Sega.

Oh, and Dead Rising Wii enters the Wii only chart at number 13. Hmm.

Good job Killzone 2 - maybe Sony notice that some strong advertising at launch has translated into some strong sales - I never saw any R2 ads at the time and bizarrely have started seeing some in the past couple of weeks. Obviously, word of mouth will have helped as well - I've been enjoying the game (only through act / chapter 2 so far).

Anyone from euroGAF clan want to fire me an invite (PSN: lochnesssnowman). Thanks :)

I know it's just the weekend, but we can conclude that neither Killzone nor Halo Wars sold over 100k at launch as they weren't in February's ELSPA awards right?

I think they count February as January 26-February 22 and not the calendar month

Thanks for clearing that up, the OP stated "The end of February" so I figured it went through Saturday at least.

From ChartTrack:
Sony is in the Zone

Capcom’s ‘Street Fighter IV’ is knocked out after round 1, only lasting one week at the top of the All Formats Chart – this week’s brand new No1 is Sony’s ‘Killzone 2’ on PS3. ‘Killzone 2’ becomes the 4th fastest selling Sony published title ever in the UK (2nd fastest on PS3 behind ‘GT5 Prologue’).

It is Sony’s first All Formats No1 for almost two years: their last All Formats No1 was at the end of April 2007 with ‘God of War 2’ on PS2. With sales down 49%, ‘Street Fighter IV’ has to make way for a second first party new entry, dropping from No1 to No3, behind Microsoft’s RTS ‘Halo Wars’ which enters at No2. It might not be anywhere near the heights of its exalted predecessor ‘Halo 3’ (selling 17.6% of Halo 3’s record breaking launch week figure), but for a console strategy game spin-off it’s top of its field, outselling the next fastest selling Xbox 360 RTS title ‘Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars’, by almost 3 to 1. Sales of ‘Wii Fit’ are down 11%, dropping from No2 to No4. In fact all the remaining Top 10 games lose sales apart from Nintendo’s ‘Professor Layton’ which jumps back into the Top 10 at No5, boosted by renewed stock. The All Formats Top 5 is dominated this week by single format exclusives from each first party publisher with only ‘Street Fighter IV’ available on more than one format (Xbox 360 and PS3). ‘Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection’ also on Xbox 360 and PS3 and also sporting a retro appeal moves up one place to No6, sales only down 4% on its launch week. Former All Formats No1 sparring partners ‘FIFA 09’ (-24%) from EA and Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: World at War’ (-21%) are neck and neck at No’s 7 and 8 respectively, while last week’s high flier ‘Ben 10: Alien Force’ (-29%) from D3P falls 5 places to No9, ahead of ‘Mario Kart Wii’ (-22%) at No10. The only other new release to make the All Formats Top 40 is Konami’s ‘Silent Hill: Homecoming’ at No11, getting a march on Capcom’s famous survival horror blockbuster ‘Resident Evil 5’, due for release on March 13th.

There's no way those games have sold less than 100k. They published the results today, but they surely stopped tracking sales during the last week of february.

I'm actually surprised KZ2 sold less than GT5P.

That's interesting. I would have thought it was on track to beat GT5:p, what with the bigger userbase and all. I guess the price helped GT5:p somewhat.

GT5P was also released one day earlier, but at the same time it was available on PSN. Hmm...

That said, the GT franchise has always been huge, so it may be normal.

Better than Silent Hill Homecoming on the PS3 at least.

Besides, it's on the same position on the Wii chart as last week. That could mean its sales are relatively similar to its position last week, but it got bumped down because of the new releases.

Seriously? GT in Europe is the strongest IP of Sony by far, actually an IP like KZ selling more than GT despite being so higly hyped, would have been surprising.

SH was released on an awful timefrime in both consoles in Europe, I can't think of many other Wii titles released along with HOTD that could shadow him.

It's been out for three or four weeks, not to mention it's a lightgun game. Has any other game of its kind done that well besides RE:UC maybe?

GT is an established franchise though. With KZ2, Killzone 2 will also have its own fanbase and will do better the next time around (KZ3?) me thinks.

Feb and March NPD is going to be very interesting to see where both these titles come out at.

Slightly surprising although not all that much. Besides the brand factor GT5P was also a budget priced title as well IIRC.

How much did Halo 3 sell on launch week? 600,000 copies?

According to this thread (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=195441&page=2), Halo 3 sold to 1 in 3 360 owners at that time which was 1.4 million. So roughly 466,666 people purchased Halo 3 in its first week which means Halo Wars sold roughly 80,000 in its first week of sales using the 17.6% of Halo 3 figure listed above?

Considering how Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit have been the biggest titles released the past year and STILL top the charts everywhere, I'd say you're wrong. :)

If Halo Wars holds the same ratio to Halo 3's launch in the US, it'll be in the range of 560,000 units in the first 10 days, which is more or less what I expected.

It's the Final Fantasy Tactics of the Halo Universe.

The crowd that it's still buying Mario Kart and Wii fit, it's clearly not the same that the one that could be interested on HOTD (even given the renewal that niche genre had on Wii partly because of casual gamers interest).

Do you even know the past history of the HoTD series

Overkill is doing very well, last week its sales were up 30% over its launch, it retained its position in the Wii charts and only needs to remain in the Top 30 for 3 more weeks to have outlasted every other light gun game

So yes its doing well even if its 10k
