Thereâ€™s no prize for guessing what the UK number one is this week. Even without GAME stocking Mass Effect 3, it has still gone on to becoming this yearâ€™s biggest game launch so far and managed to shift more copies than both Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 combined during their launches.
Chart Track also tells us that 73% of Mass Effect 3’s boxed sales were on Xbox 360, although this figure doesn’t count digital downloads on PlayStation 3 or PC.
With Shepherd on the scene SSX drops to #2, followed by new entry Street Fighter X Tekken at #3. PC add-on The Sims 3: Showtime made #6 with the next highest entry being Unit 13 on PS Vita at #15.
Asuraâ€™s Wrath didnâ€™t get a look in at all. Quite why Capcom didnâ€™t hold it back until April, when very few big name releases are due out, is beyond us.
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D also failed to make the top 40, having to instead settle for #4 in the 3DS chart.
