Originally Posted by Chart-Track:

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.

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.
Misleading ads and consumer ignorance ftw.

Layton's sales are pretty crazy.. Months after release still in top 5 even with stuff like KZ2, Halo Wars and SFIV just released.

Holy crap, I never expected Halo Wars to be that close to the top. It's a frikkin RTS (A really good one too, I'm just saying)!

And The Lost and Damned still holds its own in the DLC market, even pushing and holding GTAIV up in the charts.

Awwww... Poor Killzone 2, you wanted it so much to be on the top alone away from that annoying Halo-thingy, eh? LOL

People do know what the game is stop being a hater.

I don't agree, at all. Nice to see so many defensive reactions though.. :lol

If the title slips down extremely quickly in the coming weeks we can assume that misrepresentation carried those initial sales.


sykoex said:
So I guess this is a preview of the US NPDs? :/ That halo name sure carries a lot of power.

Yes it does, but it's a brand power that will be diluted if misrepresentation is what closed those sales.

You mean like if Killzone 2 slips down extremely quickly in the coming weeks we can assume that misrepresentation that it's a good game carried those initial sales? That's the level the discussion has come down to now...?

Honestly, I thought Halo 3 had one of the worst FPS campaigns ever. Killzone 2 beats the shit out of that rack of shit in SP.

Ah... I start to see a pattern here... Some of you Killzone guys are batshit crazy.

Are you serious? So you are just going to ignore the other charts?
No I'm not ignoring them at all. I'm just wondering if KZ2 be able to overtake the name Halo in America.

But at the end of the day, even if the Halo name outsells KZ2, I'm sure KZ2 will sell boatloads and will ultimately lead to good things for the PS3.

Ain't gonna happen. That ship has long sailed. I would be surprised if Killzone even sells as well as either of the CoD games on 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.
Screw the top two, this is the real news for me. Genesis Collection has a good debut, and shows legs. Moar, please.

Halo Wars didnt go on sale in america until March, so KZ2 does have a chance of being number 1


But it's a Halo title so you never really know. While everyone is guessing which will be at the top
am more anxious to see which title is going to fall out faster.

PS: Just watched a live stream of Halo Wars demo and damn do the controls feel fluid even with a cotroller that is.

I don't watch TV much these days, but here in the UK game ads on TV are supposed to specifically state if the footage shown isn't representative of the game.
Any of you other UK guys know if the same Halo Wars ad was shown here? What was in the ad? Did it carry a disclaimer?

The demo was out for nearly a month before the game went on sale. I also hear that the game details are on the back of the box. Strange I know. People know what they are buying.
