I guess that means they must've sold like 10 of them each?

I guess they would have achived higher positions if they would not have released all 5 remasters in the same week...

What must be remembered is that theese aren't 'new' releases, or new product (excluding the bonus stuff which won't appeal to the general public) - it is really just replacing old stock on the shelves so that it has a Universal, rather than EMI label.  There has been no TV campaign to advertise them (hell, I even saw a TV ad promoting the Cosmos Rocks when it came out!).

I'm sure that if the day comes that Queen release a NEW album (either Bri and Rog with brand new stuff, or reworkings of old Freddie vocals like MIH) we'll see a big advertisign campaign and a top 10 chart position on release.
