Latest UK charts shows majority of Kinect software languishing outside the top ten...
Last week’s all-format UK sales chart has been released, and reveals a mixed start for Kinect software sales.
Kinect Sports is the only new entry in the top ten for Microsoft’s motion-sensing peripheral, launching in at number 4. Dance Central shuffles in at 13th, a full ten places below the omnipresent Just Dance 2 for Wii which moves up from 4th to 3rd this week. Ubisoft’s various sports titles, Motion Sports, Fighters Uncaged, and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, arrive at 15th, 23rd, and 33rd respectively, with Microsoft’s Kinectimals in at 26th place and Kinect Joy Ride hitting 30th.
The weekly chart is compiled by GfK Chart Track every sunday and collates sales figures for the previous week up until saturday. With Kinect only launching last wednesday, we could see a stronger showing for the new peripheral in next week’s charts based on a full week of sales.
In other chart news, Wii exclusive Sonic Colours stumbles into the charts at a disappointing 36th, only two places above Sonic Free Riders for Kinect, which scraped into the top 40 at 38th.
Fifa 11 holds on to the 2nd spot as Football Manager 2011 slides past to 5th and PES 2011 falls another four places to 18th this week. In a dramatic fall from grace, Fable III loses its grip on the people and tumbles from 3rd to 16th.
