Battlefield: Bad Company 2 takes over UK charts

11 Comments | posted

DICE can definitely be proud of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 after the successful opening week that it has had at retail. Coming in at #1 on the UK’s sales chart is something to be proud of, but when you also outsell the original installment by a margin of 3:1, that’s an entirely different story.

According to Chart-Track, BF:BC2 is the “best ever launch for any game released this early in the year.” We’re not too sure how impressive that is since most blockbuster releases take place right before the Holidays, but it’s definitely a quote worthy of the box art’s backside.

Sony’s exclusive title, Heavy Rain, is still selling strong by maintaining its spot in the top five and SEGA can be excited about holding two of the top five slots with Aliens Vs Predator and Sonic & SEGA’s All-Star Racing. Check out the complete Top 10 below.

  1. Battlefield: Bad Company 2
  2. Just Dance
  3. Aliens vs Predator
  4. Heavy Rain
  5. Sonic & Sega All-stars Racing
  6. Wii Fit Plus
  7. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  8. Wii Sports Resort
  9. FIFA 10
  10. New Super Mario Bros. Wii

    Great, but Heavy Rain went down to number 4 after topping the chart last week.

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is a very solid shooter. However, it might be slower for others and would settle for Modern Warfare which has more fast moving actions. Don’t get me wrong but it ‘s a fairly excellent game in both single and multiplayer.

    the day i tried to DL the demo XBL took it off so i still haven’t played it yet!

    Good news for Battlefield fans. A few of my friends are excited to play it, though it’s not really my scene.

    Also, I’m going to point something out that I doubt anyone else will: Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, despite it’s clumsy name, is actually really fun. Beats the hell out of Mario Kart Wii, I think. That is all, lol.

    This game deserves MW2′s sales. DICE needs to be rewarded for this masterpiece.

  • Dr. Moogle

    oh wow, not bad, DICE!

    but it is a bit odd to see HR down to 4 now

    “This game deserves MW2’s sales. DICE needs to be rewarded for this masterpiece.”

    Yes and Mw2 should have deserved rogue warrior sales, BFBC did what Mw2 could not, make a fun enjoyable online FPS, with little to no nuisances.

    “but it is a bit odd to see HR down to 4 now”

    Not really, Heavy Rain is cleaned off the shelves, they were all out of stock, whereas BFBC is not XD

    Played the demo and had to admit it was pretty awesome multiplayer wise. I would like heavy rain to remain in the top ten as it needs to continue to sell well so that more games will be as innovative as heavy rain. Congrats to Battlefield however
