'GoldenEye 007' doubles sales of 'Blood Stone' in UK, both miss Top 10

Gaming - 08-11-10
It's not very often a Nintendo-exclusive title outsells a similar game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but the "GoldenEye 007" name clearly still carries appeal for UK gamers as the game comprehensively outsold HD 007 outing "James Bond 007: Blood Stone".

Although the Wii game landed outside the UK Top Ten at number #13 (of all games on all platforms), it sold around twice the number of copies as Blood Stone which landed at #18. Contacting several retailers revealed GoldenEye is out of stock in many locations.

Neither the DS version of GoldenEye or Blood Stone registered in the handheld's Top 40 sales this week. The PC version of Blood Stone also failed to make the computer's Top 20.

Both 007 titles were released on Friday 5th November, and had just 48 hours to log sales for this week's chart. Next week will be a truer indication of sales performance.
