Prototype does alright

Prototype 2 is the UK’s new number one this week, but it’s not all good news for Activision – it hasn’t sold as well as the last game did during launch week. It has however shifted more copies than the last two number ones – The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and Kinect Star Wars.

The Witcher 2 is down from the top spot to #6 while the rest of top five has only seen a slight shuffle. At #2 there’s FIFA Street which is followed by FIFA 12, Mass Effect 3 and Kinect Star Wars.

Crash Time 4, predictably, fails to chart.

There are a few things of note happening in the single format charts. Activision’s Battleship tie-in has finally appeared during its second week of release at a lowly #39 in the Xbox 360 chart, while the bored housewives’ favourite Bejeweled 3 enters the DS chart at #13.

In the 3DS chart the self-explanatory 50 Classic Games makes its first appearance at #8 while the actually better than you might expect Carnival Games: Wild West 3D jives in at #10.

Cowboys jive, don’t they?
