MW2 is longest unbeaten chart topper in five years

PSU writes: Stellar shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has successfully topped the British All Format Charts for the eight consecutive week, becoming the UK's longest unbeaten chart topper since Need for Speed: Underground 2.

Impressively, the game achieved this feat despite sales dropping off 41 percent from the previous week, leaving Assassin's Creed II to pick up the scraps in second place. Sales of the original Modern Warfare have also spiked on the back of its mammoth selling sequel, with the game peaking at number 13 this past week.

The general public aren't the only ones lapping up Modern Warfare 2 – we were equally impressed with it, awarding the game a score of 9.5 in our review last November. Furthermore, the shooter also reached number two in our Top Ten PS3 Games of 2009 feature published on New Year's Eve.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well, entertainment never accounted for taste. Look at Movies and Music and you'll see that statement holds a well of water.

How could anyone not rush out and buy Uncharted or a Ratchet and clank game? It boggles my mind. There is just so much in those games that more than make up for the money you're spending. COD6 has a 4 hour campaign and an online multiplayer that'll have no servers or community in 4 years time. But by all means, go spend that 60 bucks.

To be fair, in the UK they think Monty Python, Jeff Dunham and Dane Cook are gut bustingly funny. I don't think they know what's good anymore.

Wow it is outselling UC2 in the land of brainless idiots like yourself? Tell me more captain obvious.

There's never been a level in any game ever made that comes close to topping Uncharted 2's train segment. It spans a varried location and has more thrills and more action than most games have in their entirety. CODMW2 is the same game as COD4 and COD5, it's just in a different location. The fact is, anyone who passes Uncharted 2 up for a 4 hour single player campaign and some mindless online shooting, which you can do the same damn thing in COD4 or COD5, is an idiot.

Uncharted 2, sales or not, is the best game this generation.

Ok, let me get this straight.

360 fanboys don't give a sh*t about Japanese sales, but won't hesitate to post a list of games from the UK? Where most of us don't live? I thought only NA numbers mattered?

Wow... how hypocritical.

The best thing about this game for me, was that I sold it for more than I paid for it.
