Sonic Lost World Top Wii U Game in UK Charts

Sonic Lost World July screenshots 28

This weeks UK game sales charts are in, courtesy of GFK Chart track, and Sonic Lost World is the top selling Wii U game. Lost World debuted at #1 in the Wii U only chart, ahead of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Skylanders Swap Force, which was also released Friday. In the 3DS chart, Sonic Lost World entered at #4, being beaten by Nintendo’s own Pokémon X/Y and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. However, Sonic’s latest narrowly missed the top 10 all-formats chart, placing 11th behind Disney Infinity at #10.

We’ll see how Sonic Lost World fares next week with a full week of sales behind it.

Sonic Generations Retains 25th Position in the UK Chart

Despite a full week of sales for the Nintendo 3DS and retail PC versions, Sonic Generations has failed to move higher in the UK Top 40 All Formats chart this week and instead retained its position at no.25. In the Top 30 PS3 chart, the game held on to its place at no.13, while in the Top 40 Xbox 360 chart it stepped up two places from no.21 to no.19. In the Top 10 Nintendo 3DS chart and Top 20 PC chart, it’s not good news, as Sonic Generations has fell from no.4 to no.8 in the former and dropped off the latter completely.

However, it’s good news for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, with the Wii game having moved up two places from no.13 to no.11 in the Top 40 All Formats chart and retaining its no.2 spot in the Top 30 Wii chart.

Sonic Generations Climbs Back Up The UK Chart

With some discounts on the console version this past week and the release of the Nintendo 3DS and retail PC versions, Sonic Generations has jumped back up 12 places in the UK Top 40 All Formats chart this week, from No.37 to No.25. In the Top 30 PS3 chart, the game rose from No.16 to No.13, and in the Top 40 Xbox 360 chart it stepped up two places from No.23 to No.21.

The newly released Nintendo 3DS and retail PC versions of Sonic Generations performed well in their first two days on sale. The Nintendo 3DS version debuted at No.4 in the Top 10 Nintendo 3DS chart, while the PC version entered the Top 20 PC chart at No.14.

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games on Wii also saw a rise in the charts with its first full week of sales. In the Top 40 All Formats chart, Mario & Sonic’s latest Olympic collaboration shot up seven places from No.20 to No.13, while in the Top 40 Wii chart it rose from No.4 to No.2, with Ubisoft’s Just Dance 3 keeping it away from the top spot.

Will this turnaround for Sonic Generations keep up? Check back next week.

Sonic Generations Plummets in This Week’s UK Sales Chart

It seems Sonic’s 20th Anniversary game Sonic Generations just can’t compete with the many other big name titles released this month. In the top 40 All Formats chart this week, Sonic Generations plummeted from No.21 to No.37, down 16 spots from last week, while in the top 40 Individual Formats chart, the game is nowhere to be found. In the top 40 Xbox 360 chart, Sonic Generations has dropped from 12th to 23rd, and in the top 30 PS3 chart, the game is down from 9th to 16th.

As for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games on Wii, things looks much better. With just two days of sales behind it, Mario & Sonic’s latest mash-up entered the top 40 All Formats chart at No.20, the top 40 Individual Formats chart at No.23 and the top 40 Wii chart at No.4.

We’ll see next week if the release of the Nintendo 3DS and retail PC versions of Sonic Generations this Friday can give the game a lift in the charts.

Sonic Generations Drops in the UK Chart

Despite a full week of sales last week, Sonic Generations has dropped in the UK charts. In the top 40 All Formats chart, the game dropped eleven places from No.10 to No.21. In the Individual Units chart, the Xbox 360 version has plummeted from No.14 to No.32 and the PS3 version dropped from No.21 to No.37. In the top 40 Xbox 360 chart, Sonic Generations fell six places from No.6 to No.12, while in the top 30 PS3 chart, the game dropped just three places from No.6 to No.9.

With big titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception released last week and more heavy hitters to come, Sonic Generations may find itself struggle to grab sales. We’ll update you next Monday with this week’s sales chart results for Sonic Generations and Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, which is released this Friday on Wii in Europe.

Sonic Colours Rises Up The UK Top 40 Chart

With two full weeks of sales behind it, Sonic Colours has proven it has what it takes to stay relevant in the UK chart results for last week released by Chart Track today. Since last week Sonic’s latest adventure climbed two places to number 16 in the all formats chart and achieved similar success in the individual units chart by rising from 29th to 27th place on Wii and jumping four positions to number 31 on DS.

On the Wii only chart Sonic Colours rose up one rank to number 6 and beat out popular shooter Goldeneye 007, which placed at number 7. In the DS chart Sonic Colours remains seated at number 4, while Sonic Classic Collection drops one spot from 16th to 17th. Finally, in the Xbox 360 chart Sonic Free Riders stays put at number 19, but beats out some of the Kinect competition this week and interestingly places one position higher than SEGA’s well received third person shooter Vanquish.

Sonic Colours Makes UK Top 20, Free Riders Drops Out

Chart Track has released the UK chart results for last week and with a full week of sales behind them compared to last week, we can now get a good idea of the UK’s response to Sonic Colours and Sonic Free Riders. In the all formats top 40 chart, both versions of Sonic Colours have together risen from 36th to 18th position, while Sonic Free Riders has dropped out of the chart completely after ranking 38th last week with only 4 days of sales behind it.

In the individual formats top 40 chart Sonic Colours placed at the lower 29th position on Wii and 35th on DS. In the top 40 Wii only chart Sonic Colours rose from 11th place to 7th, 2 places higher than popular shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops and 1 rank lower than old rival Mario’s universally acclaimed title Super Mario Galaxy 2. As for the top 40 DS only chart, Sonic Colours climbed from 12th position to 4th, being beaten out of the top 3 by Art Academy in 3rd, New Super Mario Bros. in 2nd and popular puzzler Professor Layton and the Lost Future in 1st.

Sonic Classic Collection has jumped 4 places from 20th position to 16th, proving Sonic’s Mega Drive titles still have sales power today. Finally, Sonic Free Riders has descended in the top 40 Xbox 360 only chart from 16th place to 19th. Other Kinect launch titles in the chart have also dropped positions compared to last week, but still beat out SEGA’s mascot racer.

So, with a full week of sales behind the game, Sonic Colours has shown some positive momentum after last weeks disappointing first 2 days, while Sonic Free Riders hasn’t seen the same benefit of more sales time. Will both games improve from here? Check back next week. Meanwhile, share your thoughts in the comments.
