UK retailers have some incredible discounts at the moment â€“ GAME has been selling Xenoblade: Chronicles and RAGE for Â£9.98 while yesterday Morrisons reduced half a dozen 3DS games to Â£7 a pop.
Weâ€™ll have to wait until next week though to see how the sales have affected the UK chart, as this weekâ€™s UK top 40 only takes us up to 24th December.
Thereâ€™s a bit of a shake around in the top ten. Most significantly, FIFA 12 is back on top while the Christmas number one â€“ The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim â€“ now resides at #8. Thereâ€™s a new entry at #10 too – EA’s new hope Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Rayman Origins is doing much better now that the price has been cut to around Â£20 â€“ itâ€™s now at #19, up from #25. Pre-Christmas price cuts for Sonic Generations have also helped Segaâ€™s platformer with the blue blur dashing up from #19 to #15.
Weâ€™ll also be interested to see how Nintendoâ€™s Boom Street on Wii does next week, as Nintendo rather curiously pulled the release date forward from early January to the end of December. Early reviews havenâ€™t been too bad including a 7 from gamesTM.
