    GH won in the UK last week. Ooops.
    UK Video Game Chart: Guitar Hero 5 beats Beatles - Championship Manager 2010 for PC News - VideoGamer.com
    http://www.videogamer.com/news/uk_video_game_chart_guitar_hero_5_beats_beatles.html

    ChartTrack reports that Activision's Guitar Hero 5 has claimed the All Format No.1 in a week which saw six new entries in the Top 40.

    The battle of the bands saw Guitar Hero 5 overpower EA and MTV's The Beatles: Rock Band, which, despite an extra few days at retail, managed only fourth place in the chart. Guitar Hero 5 is the first game in the blockbuster franchise to take an All Formats No.1 position.

    Rock Band still isn't very well known in the UK, still.

    So that's how the UK responds to the first ever RB worldwide release and the first new instruments in a couple of years?

    And of course they'll be right there to complain next time when Rock Band 3 is delayed over there. Way to support your boys. Idiots.

    Yay, it leads by several spots on PS3 and 360, and GH5 didn't even appear on the Wii

    Seeing how europe has been always second rate for HMX/EA I think it is pretty logical GH5 is more well known and people recognise it and pick this up instead.

    Yep, also the Commercial has been running more often, the print and internet presence has been stronger, and presales/preorders have been available longer (really, my local GAME could let me pre-order GH5 but couldn't tell me for certain whether they'd be able to get me the TB:RB Instruments, packages, etc). I didn't see pre-orders available in my local stores until the very end of August. GH5 had been available for a number of weeks before that.

    I really dislike that GH is that much bigger over here given how poor it feels compared to RB. But such is the price of RB being late out the blocks in Europe. Also we had the timed exclusivity for Xbox360, immediately cutting out a chunk of their market.

    I will continue to support RB, I was day of release purchase for RB1, including the *separate* Band in the Box, RB2 Day of release, and TB:RB day of release. I'll be there for RB3.

    If the release of TB:RB proves to be the exception, and RB1 & 2 proves to be the rule, the franchise will continue to languish in second place to the better marketed, gimmick ridden, overcharted horror that is the GH series.

    (P.S. I know I know, UK/Europe wasn't the only territory to get treated poorly by the RB Franchise).

    And their might still be some very hurt feelings for the RB2 Wii Release.
