EA continues chart domination

Gaming giant takes half the top 10
Christmas chart topper Medal of Honor: Rising Sun has been toppled and replaced with another EA game – Need for Speed: Underground.

The WWII shooter took the coveted top Christmas chart position last week, with 6 EA titles in the top 10. Last minute Christmas shoppers on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th as well as voucher-endowed children on the 26th and 27th caused EA’s lead to slip slightly with still impressive five games in the top 10.

Notable movements elsewhere in the top 10 sees The Sims Bustin' Out rising 2 to 6, the apparently underrated Prince of Persia revival climbing to 9 from 13 and Max Payne 2 moving from 14 to 10.
