Sony's head of public relations for the UK, David Wilson, has revealed the company is pleased with the initial reaction to LittleBigPlanet as it has been their highest scoring game ever.
He added that in any other time of year it would be a clear number one, so the chart which says otherwise must be put into context.
To quote: "We're really pleased with the initial reaction to LittleBigPlanet - it has been our highest scoring game ever I believe with a Metacritic score of 95 and a huge list of 10/10s or 100 per cent scores," explained Wilson.
"We are also pleased with its commercial performance. In other times of the year it would be a clear number one - so you have to put the chart in context.
This is an incredibly volatile time of year and the chart reflects that - November 7 saw 47 titles released on that one day alone including many big hitters with Christmas number one aspirations. Look at the chart this week - the top four are all brand new entries." More PlayStation 3 News...
