Lost Planet reclaims number one

Capcom’s previous big Xbox 360 hit, Dead Rising, managed to cling on to number one spot for only one week upon its release last year, and so far Lost Planet has bettered Dead Rising’s performance over its first three weeks on sale by 20 per cent.

Even Microsoft’s three million plus selling Gears of War was only able to cling on to the top spot for one week. But Lost Planet’s ongoing success could be an indication that PS2’s iron grip on the software charts is loosening.

This is backed up by the success of Nintendo in this week’s charts. With resurgent stock levels helping to propel the likes of Wii Play from number 11 to number four, Nintendo claims eight titles in this week’s top 40, more than any other publisher and even better than the mighty EA, which claims seven.
