People are eating, breathing and feeling football (as in soccer) nowadays, since the first two spots in the UK sales charts are, according to the ELSPA, Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 and FIFA 09. Although I doubt that many people anticipated this, Konami’s simulator actually kicked EA’s off the top spot and this means jus one thing: this year, football simulators have “quality” written all over.

By checking the charts it’s also worth noting that Saints Row 2 had a good start, being placed and number three and, strange or not, both Bioshock and Halo 3 have marked a comeback to the top 20. Here are the result for the week that ended on October 18:
