In a busy week of new releases, it’s Capcom who can celebrate most readily with the latest in the Devil May Cry series entering at No.1. The first game in the series to release on the Xbox as well as the PlayStation seems to have benefited, taking the series to No.1 for the first time. Although new to the Xbox 360 platform, the console took a 61% share of DMC4 sales.
The new release of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for Nintendo DS saw the combined sales of the game jump by 85% and climb two places to No.2. In third place is the re-imagining of the Turok franchise, which pushes EA’s Burnout Paradise down to No.4.
The one new release we weren’t expecting to be riding so high is PDC World Championship Darts 08, which thanks to the massive sales of the Wii version (No.2 in the Wii chart) places at No.6.
