Pokemon still packs a punch

When the late Michael Jackson sung “It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white,” he may as well have been talking about Pokemon Black and White 2.

Pokemon Black 2 entered the UK chart at #3 while Pokemon White 2 arrived at #5, but even if their sales were combined they wouldn’t have beaten fellow newcomer Dishonored which makes its appearance at #2. That’s superb going for a new IP.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown has also done well, landing at #7.

FIFA 13 is still at #1, unsurprisingly. Resident Evil 6 drops from #2 to #4, while Just Dance 4 falls from #5 to #6.

Blackbean’s WRC 3: World Rally Championship skids in at #27, beating Fable: The Journey which gets off to a very rough start at #37. No wonder it’s already down to £24.99 at Zavvi.

It has still done better than fantasy RPG Of Orcs and Men though, which is nowhere to be seen. Considering GAME are asking a whopping £44.99 for it this doesn’t surprise us in the slightest.
