Mario & Sonic Take Christmas #1

Mario & Sonic Take Christmas #1

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is the best selling game in the UK at the moment – increasing SEGA’s chances for a Christmas #1.

Traditionally, Electronic Arts developed titles have dominated UK sales charts throughout December. This has been the case for the last four years, and looked to be true in 2007 when Need For Speed: ProStreet edged into the top spot last week.

But the unlikely collaboration of two of video gaming’s greatest icons appear to have charmed British audiences, as today it has been revealed that Mario & Sonic jumped five places to take the Gold. Odd, considering there aren’t any actual Wii’s to go around…

Next week will be the prized Christmas Week. Can SEGA keep on top of the tree riding the Wiimania that’s sweeping the country, or will EA climb up and claim its star back?
