Wow, look at the two Brain Trainings - has there been some kind of offer on this week?

Yeah, there's a bundle available, DS plus both Brain Training games and the clear Armour Lite case for £139. Not suprised to see it's selling well with the TV adverts around supporting it.

It's quite telling that the Wii with its apocalyptic sales still only manages to get 2 games in the top 40, and 2 shit/mediocre ones at that.

The interesting thing is, though, that that's pretty at odds to all recent weeks; generally the Wii's had 6, 7, 8 games in the top 40 if you look at past charts. I'm not sure why that's different this week.

New releases on other platforms knocking the Wii games out? 10 new entries and there hasn't been anything big out for ages on the Wii has there?

Chart-Track Summary for this week's chart:

Activision claim No1 with ‘Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’ which debuts with Xbox 360/PC standard and collectors editions plus PS3 and DS versions. ‘COD 4’ has been handed back to the original developer Infinity Ward, after a hiatus last time round with another Activision studio handling development (Treyarch).

The Xbox 360 version of ‘COD 4’ is huge, claiming 63% of total sales over the formats and is the 11th biggest weekly sell-through ever and second only to ‘Halo 3’ in terms of Xbox 360 titles. ‘Call Of Duty 3’ was also released this time last year but only on Xbox and 360 with PS2 and Wii versions following 2 & 4 weeks later. Also debuting strongly at No2 is THQ’s ‘WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2008’ on 6 formats. However, it is PS2 which claims the majority with 44% of sell-through. Last year’s version also debuted this week, but only on PS2/Xbox360, followed by PSP 5 weeks later. EA remain at No3 with ‘The Simpsons Game’ (+113%) gaining 2 new formats this week with PSP and PS3. Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2008’ (-55%) drops from No1 to No4, followed at No5 by EA’s ‘FIFA 08’ (-19%). Nintendo’s DS Brain Training titles climb nicely to No6 (+55%) and No7 (+36%) this week, in keeping with a massive surge in DS hardware sales. Other Christmas hopefuls joining the fray this week are Disney’s PS2 ‘High School Musical: Sing It!’ at No12, Lucasarts’ ‘Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga’ at No17 on 360/PS3 and Sony’s PS3 ‘Ratchet & Clank: Tools Of Destruction’ at No19.

Also, someone at NeoGAF had a reply from Chart-Track as to why official numbers aren't released to the Public Domain:

Chart Track just got back to me, unfortunately the way the Euro business model works we will not be getting sales data from them direct.

Basically the large retailers are charging for the sales data, and then Chart Track compiles, collates and redistributes it to the big publishers and manufacturers. Who in turn subscribe to Chart Track.

It's a shame because I would argue that the EU market is definitely one of the more interesting.

That's not very good then is it?

Well, if we jump back to before both the price-cut and the 40GB launch, estimates suggest the PS3 was selling around 28,000 units a week, so the two together represent a leap of around 36,000 units a week. Good on the surface, but sales should indeed be rising anyway as we head towards Christmas. Plus, it's hardly a stellar total when your rivals are shifting between 170-190,000 units a week. So, I guess it depends which way you want to look at it. Bottom line is, sales have risen, but not by an amazing amount.

Meanwhile, European/Other estimates are also in, which make better ready for Sony: -

European/Other hardware estimates for week ending Nov 11th: -

Nintendo DS - 246,562 (18,484,652 in total)

PSP - 60,284 (9,541,269)

Xbox 360 - 54,090 (4,229,429)

Game Boy Advance - 6,042 (21,308,046)

And for Benito, who wanted to see the estimates for the UK this week: -

Nintendo DS - 68,476 (4,312,505 in total)

"The PS3 [all models] sold 65,000 units during the second week of November, showing substantial growth from the 16,000 units during the first week," said Katayama. The sales exceeded forecasts by more than 50 per cent.

PS3 65k units in Japan last week. Looks like the 360 outselling it was more due to people waiting for the 40Gb model.

I don't think that had anything to do with it. PS3 figures have been at the 17-20,000 mark for weeks. The 360 outsold it for one week because of Ace Combat.

There are three things that catch my eye about this. Firstly, what massive totals we've had recently - GHIII shifted 1 million in its first week, and Call of Duty has done 670,000 odd here. Secondly, that's not the best start for Mario & Sonic, though it has the potential to carry on selling up to and beyond the Olympic Games, so it could still shift a hefty total. Thirdly, I know plenty of other people on other forums were predicting year end sales of between 600,000 and 1 million for Ratchet & Clank - it certainly doesn't look like it's going to hit that. Is the PS3 effectively grounded in the U.S. until GTA IV?
