Despite some hiccups involving EUK shortages, Insomniac’s Resistance 2 has managed to scrape into the UK All Format Charts at number ten, as the formidable Call of Duty: World at War remains in pole position for yet another week running.
Sonic’s latest attempt at convincing punters that the hedgehog’s 3D outings aren’t complete rubbish didn’t fare too well on the other hand, with the game failing to make waves on either the top 40 or PlayStation 2 charts, putting in an appearance on the Xbox 360 and Wii charts only.
Recent entries Need for Speed: Undercover and Tomb Raider: Underworld gained some momentum, however, rising to two and seven, respectively, while LittleBigPlanet continued its down hill tumble to 32.

awesome...stupid english gamers see cartoon graphics and would rather pass it up to play fifa which is the same game as last year with new textures on the shirts. bunch of thick wits

apart from the Wii games notice that the PS3 is the only next-gen console in the top 10. wears gears??? 17th!! *chuckles to himself about some fanboy comment read earlier*

ps3 exclusives deserve better

Tadpole3159, I'm guessing your American by your uneducated comment.
'Stupid english gamers'.
I hate to point this out, but you are also a stupid English gamer too unless the US now refer to the English language as American.
I think you mean United Kingdom residents.
Perhaps we should all stop enjoying Football and get involved in those 'World Series' things you have as sport where no one else in the world actually participates. lol.

resistance in the top 10? what? it should be at least in the top 5!!
- 3:41am EST - December 2nd, 2008
Resistance 2 campaign is amazing, the online competitive is sick, the co-op is unbeleivable, this game is worth getting, 10/10
should be first place

r2 is in the top 10 but it had only been on the market 3 days and not a whole week so i think nr 10 is quite good. need to see next weeks figures as it should be a better reflection. little sad that lbp was outsold by wall-e and just managed to beat high school musical 3.
oh and tadpole grow up. i don't like fifa but i take offense at being generalised (sorry thats generalized) as being stupid and thick-witted.

psn id: gingo... @Krankor.... i couldn't have said it better myself... i myself am Scottish and i'll be damned if i get classed as an Englishman, maybe some ignorant Americans should actually realise Britain is more than one country
- 5:56am EST - December 2nd, 2008
im from coventry england :)
and btw english (fine british is more correct but since i dont know anyone out side of england i'm sticking with england) gamers are stupid, my brother got in an arguement with me saying fifa is amazing and cod is the same thing every year with new graphics...stupid kid ¬¬
- 5:57am EST - December 2nd, 2008
next week i'll be out of top 10, this game is like haze with better online, they were trying to much to make it like halo.

Kinda sad that LBP isn't selling that well. This is why devs wanna go multi-platform with their titles. Granted the PS3 has more market share in Europe than the 360 does, but it's a shame that more people won't get to play LBP, as I think it's a really innovative game. The sales were not stellar in the US either. The last minute delay I'm sure was partly to blame, but regardless still had less sales than expected. COD being #1 isn't surprising, but again, with all the hype surrounding R2, i'm also suprised it isn't selling better either.

its those stupid english gamers who made lbp .you should really really think be4 you comment,btw fifa09 is a amazing game,its also multi-plat and was sold £25 on release so of course its gonna have more sales.just cause ur a fat kid who doesnt like sports or english people doesnt mean its bad.

what the f**k is wrong with uk. seriously. I mean.. who buys undercover..
remember when that sonic&mario olympics game was like in top5 for months.
oh wait it's still in the top15 apparently.

What you have to relise is, in the Uk i could garantee there will be a Wii advert in 8/10 of ad breaks, i have seen one LBP advert its marketing, people aint gonna know about a game being out, if they dpont know about it!
- 7:48am EST - December 2nd, 2008
agreed with hindahouse(15). Lack of advertising is the biggest problem. It's like every time I watch TV i'm guarenteed to see an ad for the wii or DS. I havent even seen a sony advert yet >_<

i also make games, working on a crysis mod as i type, i know its made in england. dont leacture me. i also like football, i'm a chelsea fan. i used to play for my school before i left.
i said english gamers would rather buy a copy and paste fifa game than play something new and different. thats why they are stupid, and your a wwe fan and thats why your stupid
- 8:26am EST - December 2nd, 2008
Considering R2 is an exclusive and only released on one console its done well to come in amongst the top ten
- 9:09am EST - December 2nd, 2008
The Brits have no taste (we knew this already, based on their choices of food)... LBP is an amazing game.
- 9:13am EST - December 2nd, 2008
@17 tadpole. good to hear that you're english but your grammar is appalling. so if you're going to insult someone don't mix the words "your" and "you're". that would be stupid ;) oh and ease off calling people that - it's not nice
@19 oh come on!!! what's wrong with blood pudding or haggis??? (which i should state is from scotland and not english so as not to offend the fine gentlemen north of the boarder)
