May 30, 2007 - Once again proving that there's very little justice in the world of videogame sales, the brilliant sort-of footie fest Mario Strikers: Charged Football, has been bested by a mighty tide of movie tie-in mediocrity.
You see, Activision's Spider-Man 3 has managed to ensnare the number one position for the fourth week in a row. While, creeping up in second place, is the awfully average Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End, which launched on every format possible last Friday.
At number three in the charts then is Mario Strikers: Charged Football, which we guess hasn't performed that badly considering it was only released on one console - unlike both Spider-Man 3 and Pirates.
Meanwhile, the rest of the top ten features the same familiar faces from last week. So, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars moves down from two to four and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 drop the ball, falling from three to five.
At the lower end of the chart, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles moves up from 11 to six, Sims 2: Pets sniffs its way from 13 to seven and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion suffers a critical blow, meaning a drop two places to eight. Elsewhere, FIFA 07 shoots its way to the ninth place compared to last week's 23 and Final Fantasy III plummets five places to 10.
