The Bouncer is #1 for week of March 4.
NPD has let loose their latest sales charts which span the week of March 4th through March 10th. Despite many less than positive reviews, Square's mega-hit The Bouncer still came out on top as the number one selling Playstation 2 game for that week. But wait, I believe I should mention that The Bouncer is also the number one selling game overall, which is great news as well. Just last week Star Wars: Starfighter was dominating the charts, but leave it to Square to topple the Star Wars franchise. Over 37,500 copies of The Bouncer were sold, which is more than what Tiger Woods 2001 and Starfighter sold, combined.
"We are excited to see that The Bouncer has topped the sales charts across all platforms in its first week of release." Said Jun Iwasaki, President, Square EA. "Thanks to the fans and everyone's support for this successful launch."
The list goes as follows for Playstation 2 games:
1) The Bouncer by Square/EA - $50
2) Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001 by EA Sports - $50
3) Star Wars: Starfighter by Lucas Arts - $50
4) Madden NFL 2001 by EA Sports - $50
5) ATV: Offroad Fury by Sony CEA - $50
I feel that The Bouncer deserves the success it's getting, I gave the game a pretty good grade in my review. Make sure you check it out.
