Wii has two exclusive titles in the Top 10, with Wii Play, which came bundled with the Wii Remote, claiming ninth spot. Ubisoft’s Red Steel is the highest third party title in the listings, debuting in 19th, whilst another Ubisoft game, Rayman Raving Rabbids, claims 30th.
Other titles in the top ten include Activision’s Call of Duty 3 at number four, EA’s The Sims 2 Pets at six and THQ’s WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2007 at number seven. Microsoft’s Gears of War slips two places to eighth whilst LucasArts' Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy props up the rest in tenth.
Outside of these four, the Wii top ten sees Sega’s Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz claim fifth spot ahead of Activision’s Call of Duty 3 at number six. This is followed by EA’s Need for Speed: Carbon in seventh and Ubisoft duo Monster 4x4 World Circuit and GT Pro Series in eighth and ninth respectively. Activision’s Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam claims tenth place.
Wii software in general enjoyed a strong opening week, bettering the performance of its Xbox 360 rival last year by a similar margin to the hardware.
