When the Saints go marching in

It would seem that Deep Silver’s acquisition of Volition is paying off – Saints Row IV has claimed the UK top 40 top spot for a second week running.

Last week it was reported that over a million copies have been sold so far, so perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that it’s still the UK’s no. 1.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist remains at #2 for a second week running. That’s followed by new entry Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn. Square-Enix yanked the digital version last week due to sever problems.

The not-quite-as-good-as-we-hoped Disney Infinity – which we’re reviewing later today – drops from #3 down to #4.

At #6 it’s a new entry for Rayman Legends, with sales up 20 percent from the equally great Rayman Origins. According to the individual format chart it’s the Wii U version that has proven the most popular, followed by Xbox 360 and then PS3.

There’s yet another new entry behind Ubisoft’s limbless hero – EA’s Madden NFL 25 at #7.

Scrolling down the chart we find the disappointingly mediocre pairing of Lost Planet 3 and Killer is Dead arriving at #26 and #28 respectively.

If these two don’t receive a significant price drop by the end of next week we would be very surprised.
