Sony Santa Monica’s violent epic God of War III has taken the number one spot over the previous number one Final Fantasy XIII. Final Fantasy XIII suffered a shocking 80 percent drop in sales compared to last week and now resides at number three. Meanwhile EA’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2 holds it’s number two spot. Metro 2033 is the second best new entry this week, coming in at number five. This result will no doubt add fuel to the fire on the subject of God of War III possibly doing better than Final Fantasy XIII. These are the UK charts, but what tale will the monthly NPD’s tell for North America? Time will tell.
