Considering Risen 2: Dark Waters entered at a respectable #14 back in 2012, it’s slightly surprising to find that Risen 3: Titan Lords has failed to make the UK top 40.
Deep Silverâ€™s RPG does however enter at #12 in both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 individual charts, suggesting it only narrowly missed out on a top 40 placing.
Last month Sacred 3 – also published by Deep Sliver – likewise failed to break into the chart. We highly doubt that this will be the last we see of these two relatively obscure franchises though – chances are they have performed well on PC, not to mention elsewhere in Europe. In case youâ€™re not aware, Chart-Track doesn’t currently include digital download sales.
In the top ten, meanwhile, a minor shuffle has occurred – The Last of Us Remastered holds onto #1, while Watch_Dogs remains at #2. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition round off the top five, while positions 5-10 are filled by the usual culprits – FIFA 14, GTA V, Battlefield 4 et al.
Glancing down the chart, Ultra Street Fighter IV – last weekâ€™s only new arrival – drops from #15 to #22. Itâ€™s this weekâ€™s biggest faller, in fact.
Then at #21 itâ€™s a surprise re-entry for EAâ€™s Command & Conquer: Ultimate Collection. A quick poke around online would suggest that GAME cutting the price to Â£4.99 is the reason.
Resident Evil 6 has also re-entered, way down at #31. Itâ€™s currently Â£4.99 with any purchase at HMV. Weâ€™d wager thatâ€™s why.
Thatâ€™s about all the â€˜actionâ€™ (for want of a better word) that the chart holds for us this week. With Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition launching tomorrow and the PS3/PS4 versions of Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare arriving this Friday, next Monday’s chart should be a tad more exciting.
