Final Fantasy storms in at number one

There’s a duo of new releases at the top of this week’s UK all format Chart Track listings – with Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XII sweeping in at number one and 360 action title Crackdown taking second spot.

Square’s triple-A title becomes the fastest-selling release in the franchises’ history in the UK, accounting for a huge 53.5 per cent of all full price PS2 sales this week. Crackdown becomes the fourth fastest selling Xbox 360 title behind Gears of War, PES 6 and Call of Duty 3.

Alongside the duo of new releases, EA has a strong presence in the chart, with four titles in the top ten. Super budget publisher Grabit also manages to rack up a decent array of titles in the top forty. With Bad Boys II at seven, Sudoku at 16 and Sheep at 17, in total the value label claims six top 40 titles.
