Two things of note have happened in this week’s UK chart. Firstly, SSX has become the first game in the series to go straight to number one. Secondly, Mario Party 9 has entered at a surprisingly high #3 making it the highest charting Mario Party game yet.
Coincidentally, it has been five years since both the last SSX and Mario Party instalments.
Last week’s number one Uncharted: Golden Abyss drops to #4 while Assassin’s Creed Revelations has gone hurtling back up from #31 to #9.
Syndicate has left the top 10 already, dropping from #7 to #11. Binary Domain remains in the top 40, but only just – it was at #35 last week but now it’s at #39.
