Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is mounting a lone final stand against the assembled mass of Wii software intent of obliterating the entire top ten this holiday season.
It’s hanging on with grim determination, but it may not last much longer. Remarkably, the PS3 version continues to outsell its Xbox 360 rival, as it has done every week except the launch week. With the multiplayer being the core reason to buy Modern Warfare 2, I’m wondering if there’s a lot of people out there who own both consoles but would rather play online for free.
Elsewhere, New Super Mario Bros. maintains its grip on the top spot, as I predicted a fortnight ago. Expect it to hang on there until we see the likes of Mass Effect 2 and BioShock 2 arriving next year.
