This weekâ€™s UK chart bears very good news for Ubisoft â€“ Assassinâ€™s Creed III has performed exceptionally well, arriving at #1. Not only has it sold more than double the number of copies that Assassinâ€™s Creed II did at launch, but it has also beaten Assassinâ€™s Creed: Revelations â€“ the previous fastest selling game in the series â€“ by over 117,000 units.
Assassinâ€™s Creed: Liberation for PS Vita has done rather well too, entering at #14 and becoming the third biggest launch for the handheld, behind Uncharted: Golden Abyss and FIFA Football.
WWE 13 enters at #3, which is bound to please the cash-strapped THQ, Football Manager 2013 at #4 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted at #5. Most Wanted sold 17,000 more copies than last yearâ€™s Need for Speed: The Run did during its launch.
Thatâ€™s it for new releases in the top 40 this week, but over in the single-format charts Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition makes #17 in the PlayStation 3 chart and #32 in the Xbox 360 chart, while Silent Hill: Book of Memories enters the PS Vita top ten at #9.
