    The Charts: PS3 Knocked Off The Top

    This just about rounds up this weeks PS3 News

    Source: http://news.spong.com/article/12221?cb=935


    The PS3's first full week of sale has drawn to a close and it no longer sits at the top of the charts.

    At the close of the week ending March 31st it's EA's Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, a PC exclusive, that occupies the Number 1 spot. EA has a penchant for releasing Command and Conquer titles against Sony console launches, with the original debuting 11 and a half years ago in the same week as the PSOne launch.

    Sony's heavyweight first-person-shooter, Resistance: Fall of Man makes way for Tiberium Wars, dropping to 62% in sales to Number 2. Likewise, MotorStorm crashes down a spot from Number 2 to Number 3.

    Codemasters’ Brain Lara International Cricket 2007 on the PC, 360 and PS2 similarly gets nudged down a spot. Are you seeing a pattern emerge?

    The PS3 and 360 versions of Virtua Tennis 3 from Sega are joined by versions for the PSP and PC, but it's not enough to save it from (you guessed it) dropping one place. It drops from Number 4 to Number 5.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Ubisoft fares well this week. It jumps from Number 19 into the Top 10 at Number 6. It turns out carrying your house on your back doesn't make you as immobile as you might have thought.

    EA's UEFA Champions League 2006-2007 is the only other game in the Top 10 to see a sales increase this week. It slides in at Number 7, up from Number 15.

    Medal of Honor: Vanguard is the only game other than Tiberium Wars to hit the Top 40 this week, and it too comes from EA. The PS2 and Wii release enters the Chart just short of the Top 10, landing at Number 11.

    The PS3 gets its software ranks boosted to 23, with its version of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Double Agent from Ubisoft coming out. It's not enough to get the shooter into the Top 40, however.

    Yeah that is what I was going to comment on. A little dramatic for one spot.

    Ummm R::FOM is at #2 what's the big deal? Why do they have to make it sound like it's off the top 10?

    Yeah, 'crashes' is too dramatic a word, having said that, they may have been describing the 62% drop in sales though, that is a crash.

    220k ps3 users (most were going to get the game in the first week anyway) vs the release of a game on pc while the pc has an installed base of a few mill atleast (dont know what it specifically is in the UK)


    kinda obvious who will win.
    PS360 because im a console fan, not a fanboy.

    PS3 title crashes down a spot and burns in hell for eternity. LOL! Motorstorm crumbles to ruins and gets nuked with sulphuric acid and drops down ONE whole ranking.

    Very funny spin this site put on things. They make it sound like PS3 titles all dropped out of the top 100 or something. They really need to get a life.

    Let's see. 400+ million XP users vs less than 3 million PS3 users? I wonder how a C&C game will do with that kind of user number. LOL

    I think the "crashes down a spot" is used because of Motorstorm being notorius for it's crashing.
    Anyho, everyone knew this would happen.

    A pun for a title! That's genius or at least it was ten years ago. Ether way it's good to see that it's still selling really well after opening week.
