By Matt Gander In UK Charts No Comments

It would appear that Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z’s mediocre reviews haven’t harmed sales – the brawler has managed to enter the UK chart at a respectable #10.

It’s at #7 in both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 charts, and #1 in the PS Vita chart.

This just goes to show how popular the anime franchise remains, although chances are that it didn’t have to sell all that many copies to chart as highly as it has done – sale figures were down heavily last week.

In fact, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition – currently at #6 – was the only game in the top ten to see an increase in sales, and even then it was only by a mere 2%. FIFA 14 – which is no. 1 for a fourth week running – saw a 14% sales decrease, while Assassin’s Creed IV dropped a colossal 35%.

With FIFA 14 on top of the chart, the rest of the UK top five looks like this – Call of Duty: Ghosts at #2, followed by Battlefield 4, LEGO Marvel Superheroes and Assassin’s Creed IV.

Killzone: Shadow Fall remains in the top 10 at #7 while Forza 5 continues to be the highest charting Xbox One-exclusive at #12. Of course, both of these are bundled with their respective consoles. Even Knack is still knocking around due to being available in a bundle, albeit at #25.

Finally, Mario Party: Island Tour – the only other game to be released this month- is currently at #17, up one place from last week.
