I really like Assassin’s Creed 2, a lot, but even as a fan of the game I really didn’t see this coming.
Sales charts are now indicating that Assassin’s Creed 2 has in fact overtaken Modern Warfare 2 sales on the Playstation 3, putting it in the top spot, this according to digitalspy.co.uk.
I did a bit of digging and the chart compiled by the Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA) does seem to only cover UK sales, which while still a massive achievement for the folks at Ubisoft, doesn’t quite make the same statement as what it would have had it been worldwide.
Here’s the PS3 top 10.
- Assassin’s Creed II
- Modern Warfare 2
- FIFA 10
- Need for Speed: Shift
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
- WWE SmackDown vs RAW 2010
- Tekken 6
- Batman: Arkham Asylum
- Pro Evolution Soccer 2010
- Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues

Perhaps the older (on average) PS3 owners are generally more conscientious about quality then their younger xbot counterparts? Or maybe PS3 gamers are savvy enough to spot a lemon (MW2)?

I went with Both.
Nice ‘calm’ AC2 and some frantic fun MW2.
That is in between UC2 that is!

I went for the value for money and got AC2 as well.
