Resistance 2 a Dud, but UK Still Feels the Call of Duty (1 Million Sold!)

12/8/08

UK - Just one week after Resistance 2 debuted at a disappointing 10th place, the follow up to the previous hit is conspicuously missing from the top 10 and has fallen all the way down to 20th on the UK charts.

That's not to say that the UK doesn't enjoy its hardcore shooters, as Call of Duty: World at War is in 1st for the fourth week in a row (and it has hit 1 million sold, according to GFK Chart-Track), and Fallout 3 is enjoying a resurgence from a previous down week all the way up to 7th on the chart. It appears that Resistance 2 is just a flop.

Other popular games include Nintendo's Wii mainstays, Mario Kart Wii, Wii Fit, and Wii Play, as well as consecutive weeks in the top 10 by NFS: Undercover, Fifa 09, and Tomb Raider: Underworld.

How about Gears of War 2? Is that a flop too because I can't see it on the list?

Yeah, your logic is uncanny; "if it's not on the UK top list it's a flop!".

I AGREE WITH COMMENTS ABOVE

Meh...Anything with games like Fifa 09 higher than great games like Fallout 3, Resistance 2 and even Gears doesn't really deserve a mention to whether a games a success or not.

Your site is really sad.

That's all I have to say about that.

Well, considering the fact I play it every single day and have been playing it for every single day since I got it, I would hardly consider it a flop (imo)

It's hard to gage the UK charts just looking at the multiformat list (as it adds together all versions of a game). I prefer the individual charts, but Resistance 2 hasn't been doing very well. But then again prior to being bundled the first game didn't do much in Europe either.

This is more worthless drivel from this lousy site. I see a bunch of multiplatform games on that top ten list. And the Wii games of course sell well since Wii gamers don't have much worth buying.

how can resistance 2 be not doing well in UK. the game is great and definately deserves to be in the top 10. PS3!!!!!

need for speed: undercover #5 and tomb raider: underworld #6. really? why should anyone care what the UK thinks about videogames if those 2 pieces of garbage are in their top 10? they obviously enjoy torturing themselves with mind-numbingly boring unplayable games.

could it be because all the games above were shipped before EntertainmentUK went bust?? Since they are the suppliers and all. I couldn't find it last week in my local shops, granted I didn't try big chain stores.

To the idiot who wrote this article - if Resistance 2 is a flop because it's not on the top 10 then doesn't that also make Gears Of War 2 and Fable 2 flops???

Before anyone accuses me of being a Resistance fanboy i'd like to mention that i don't own Resistance and i have no intention of doing so. I don't even like FPS games. However i don't feel there's any need for so - called analysts to be biased when drawing conclusions from sales data.
