UK Charts: Gran Turismo 5: Prologue still leading

Gran Turismo 5: Prologue has managed to do what other great releases haven't been able to do since February: bump off Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games from top spot in the UK for more than two weeks.

Mario & Sonic's been leading the charge for two months now, only being bumped off now and again when a major game has been released, like Army of Two and Devil May Cry 4, but they've never been able to keep top spot for more than a week.

Also of note is Condemned 2: Bloodshot (360, PS3), which debuted at fifth place, and Dark Sector (360, PS3), which entered at 11th. Here are the rest of the top games in the UK for the week ending on April 5:

1. Gran Turismo 5: Prologue
2. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
3. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2
4. Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
5. Condemned 2
6. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
7. Viking: Battle for Asgard
8. Wii Play
9. Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training
10. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
11. Dark Sector
12. Sega Superstars Tennis
13. Carnival: Funfair Games
14. FIFA 08
15. Game Party
16. Cooking Mama 2
17. The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return
18. Army of Two
19. More Brain Training from Dr. Kawashima
20. Ben 10: Protector of Earth

Under-rated when it comes to system sellers.(killer app)

I have been saying that for a yr now. Once damage gets added via update expect another spike in sales. Unfortunately i like in US so i haven't been able to enjoy that GT goodness, however i am saving up for summer i want to get one of the racing cokpits thing. Bloddy nonsense costs like 250 bucks plus steering wheel 150 bucks. That is an Xbox360 elite right there which i have had my eye on for a while. :(

It doesn't say how many console's sold with it. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just saying you're comment is a logical falacy.

You cannot deduce your conclusion from the information given in the article.

@the lazy one...erm you can...this is first ps3 game in europe where it came to no. 1 and bumped up the ps3 hardware figures as well...the correlation's there. and chart track also reported that ps3 was selling more even though x360 just had a major price cut...I think it's pretty safe bet to assume that GT is system seller...I mean its done it before in europe so why are people so surprised that it's done it again...it's a half finished game but it's still classy enough to sell systems...

the 'check hook' comes later in the form of MGS4;)

SUP3R3309d ago

Well this is unsurprising.
Get onboard! Next stop MGS4, only on Playstation 3.

It also was sold out a couple times. It didn't effect first place though. :)

Danja3309d ago

hmm well considering that GT5p sales was only compiled for 2 days last week.....

This shouldn't be a shocker !
