Last week really was a poor one for UK game sales. So poor, in fact, that this weekâ€™s UK top 40 sees 2011’s Pokemon White and Pokemon Black resurface at #21 and #22. What are they doing there? Why, theyâ€™re reduced to Â£7.99 at Argos currently. Even with limited stock available theyâ€™ve still managed to almost break the top 20.
There were no new releases last week either, and so the top ten features all the usual faces.
Watch_Dogs is still #1, FIFA 14 moves up to #2 due to heavy discounting, Call of Duty: Ghosts is at #3 and then at #4 and #5 respectively itâ€™s Wolfenstein: The New Order and Sniper Elite 3.
Mario Kart 8 is back in the top ten though, which Nintendo and Nintendo fans alike will no doubt be pleased to hear. Itâ€™s at #10, up from #16. Tomodachi Life meanwhile leaves the top ten this week, going from #9 to #14.
Elsewhere in the top 40, movie tie-in in disguise Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark rises up from #18 to #15. 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil continues its descent, plunging to #19, and GRID: Autosport moves down from #20 to #28. With very few new releases out, we would have thought that Codemastersâ€™ latest racer would be performing a little better.
