Back in August 1999 Command & Conquer
: Tiberian Sun
dominated the UK's All Formats Chart for a 4-week stretch. Today the EA-owned RTS series is back on top, as Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
debuts at #1
(for the week ending March 31) -- and there can be only one, #1. Indeed, just as PlayStation 3 hardware sales have quickly cooled
, so have sales of the console's top software titles, Resistance
, both dropping more than 60% in sales from two weeks ago (when the titles commanded the top spots
) to last week, when they slipped, however slightly in the rankings to #2 and #3.
Coincidentally, this isn't the first time that C&C
and PlayStation have done the bump n' grind on UK sales charts. During the final week of September 1995, both Westwood Studios' original Command & Conquer
) and Sony's first PlayStation system made their UK retail debuts.
