Let’s face it, SONIC The Hedgehog has fought an uphill battle since the first critical impressions leaked out in early November. This, however, it seems has not managed to slow Sonic at all, with the new title reaching top ten XBox 360 sales charts in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
In the United Kingdom, SONIC The Hedgehog has fallen from it’s position in ninth place last week to a still reputable tenth place.
1 Gears of War
2 Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas
3 Call of Duty 3
4 Pro Evolution Soccer 6
5 FIFA 07
6 WWE Smackdown! Vs. RAW 2007
7 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
8 Need For Speed: Carbon
9 Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent
10 Sonic the Hedgehog
Down under in Australia, SONIC The Hedgehog remains on the charts for a second week moving up to ninth place.
And finally in New Zealand, SONIC makes it’s début on the charts in tenth place.
Whilst ninth and tenth place may not exactly be considered something to write home about, this is the game that was named one of the worst games of the year, but has still managed to chart on the strength of the SONIC franchise alone.
