Last week we speculated that The Smurfs 2 may rise up the chart once the movie had been released. Well, we weren’t wrong there – it has shot up all the way to #5 in the UK top 40.
The gameâ€™s pricing is likely to be another reason for its undeserved success – it can be found for a mere Â£15 in some of the supermarkets.
Weâ€™d also wager that price, combined with the kids being off school, has something to do with Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition being the UKâ€™s number one for a second week running. That Â£12-or-so price tag is a small price to pay to keep them quiet.
Not that we believe Minecraft is strictly kidâ€™s game, you understand.
Back to the top 40. The Last of Us rises up from #3 to #2, while at #3 itâ€™s Animal Crossing: New Leaf followed by FIFA 13 at #4.
Both Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. and Pikmin 3 have left the top ten already, dropping to #11 and #15 respectively.
New Super Luigi U meanwhile falls from #13 to #37. Itâ€™s not all bad news for Nintendo though – Luigiâ€™s Mansion 2 is up one whole place to #21.
