A record-breaking performance from Call of Duty: Black Ops has seen it rocket to the top of the UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40 this week.
However, the new COD wasn’t the only new release on the market this week – there was the little matter of Microsoft’s Kinect as well.
We haven’t yet seen the sales numbers for the peripheral itself, but eight Kinect games entered the UK Top 40 this week, lead by Kinect Sports which debuted at No.4.
The other Kinect games to make the listings were Microsoft’s Kinect Sports (fourth), Dance Central (13th), Ubisoft’s Motion Sports 15th) and Fighters Uncaged (23rd), Kinectimals (26th), Kinect Joy Ride (30th), Ubisoft’s Your Shape: Fitness Evolved (33rd) and Sega’s Sonic Free Riders (38th).
THQ’s Biggest Loser as well as Konami duo Crossboard 7 and Dance Evolution failed to enter the Top 40.
For comparison, following PlayStation Move’s arrival in September three games entered the UK charts – Sony’s Sports Champions (which impressively captured second place) and Start the Party (29th), as well as Ubisoft’s Racket Sports (32nd).
