It appears we like, but don’t love, cricket.
The PS3 version of Codemasters’ Ashes Cricket 2009 debuts at #4. But despite riding on the wave of our first win in the series last week, it fails to dislodge Nintendo’s top order batsmen.
Expect to see the 360 version appear next week, after its release was mysteriously delayed one week. Now, if only that Wii version had been released on time… I reckon it might have had the best chance of knocking Wii Sports Resort off the top.
