Where Resident Evil lurks

A Tuesday release for Resident Evil 6 has helped Capcom’s survival horror shooter become the 4th biggest release of 2012. It hasn’t been able to knock FIFA 13 off the top spot of the chart though, settling for #2, and it hasn’t beaten Resident Evil 5’s launch week sales either.

Borderlands 2 moves down from to #2 to #3. At #4 it’s a new entry for Just Dance 4 with F1 2012 finishing off the top #5.

Justin Bieber’s rather unbelievable appearance in NBA 2K13 hasn’t harmed sales – it’s in at a surprisingly high #6. Ubisoft’s Rocksmith holds onto #7 but both LEGO Batman 2 and World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria have left the top ten this week.

Also spare a thought for Dead or Alive 5. After entering at #11 last week it’s now at #31. If Tecmo-Koei doesn’t give it some support it’s going to flop.
