Last week’s trio of big name releases has given the UK top 40 the shake up it so desperately needed. It’s Final Fantasy XIII-2 that ends FIFA 12’s dominance at the top of the chart, which is followed by Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection at #2. Soul Calibur V enters in at a rather apt #5.
Last week’s only new entry – Resident Evil: Revelations – drops from #6 to #19.
Konami’s NeverDead failed to make the top 40 chart at all. In the single format charts it’s at a not too shabby #20 in the PlayStation 3 chart and a lowly #35 in the Xbox 360 chart.
It’s the PlayStation 3 version of Final Fantasy XIII-2 that sold the most copies but it the opposite was the case for Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection where the Xbox 360 version shifted the most during launch.
