UK Charts

Insert Destiny’s Child Pun Here

What could be this week’s UK number one? What could it possibly be? Oh, that’s right – Destiny. Bungie’s sci-fi shooter sits atop the chart for a second week. Well done Destiny. Only time – and more specifically FIFA 15 – will tell if Destiny retains the top...

Batman is the man that can

Pow! Batman: Arkham City goes straight to number one in this week’s UK chart, shoving Forza Motorsport 4 down to #4. At #2 there’s FIFA 12 and at #3 there’s a new entry – Football Manager 2012. Just Dance 3 at #5 finishes off the top 5. The...

Gears gives way to FIFA

Predictably, FIFA 12 has pushed Gears of War 3 off the top of the UK chart this week. It has become the third biggest UK launch ever, with launch sales up 18% over FIFA 11. You may recall that we were mildly interested in seeing how well the...

I left my chart in San Francisco

If you purchased Deus Ex: Human Revolution and/or Driver: San Francisco last week then give yourself a pat on the back – you’ve helped stop Zumba Fitness from flexing back up to the top of the chart. This week it’s at #3, under Eidos Montreal’s masterpiece and Ubisoft...

Smurf off

It’s yet another week for Zumba Fitness at the top spot of the UK chart. That’s eight weeks in a row and there’s no sign of it budging – Chart Track claims last week it outsold the next four titles in the chart combined. Those titles are DiRT...

The Wii is dead? Think again

The only new entry in this week’s UK top 40 is The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff at #12. There is a bit of shuffling going on in the top 10 though. Zumba Fitness unsurprisingly holds onto #1, Cars 2 dashes up from #8 to #2 – with...

Optimus Prime Time

It must have been a slow week for sales last week. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 makes #7 in the top 40 UK chart yet Chart Track claims launch sales have been the lowest for any Harry Potter game. Even lower, believe it or not,...

Brink and you’ll miss it

It’s fair to say that we have Game and GameStation’s sales to thank for the big shake up in this week’s UK top 40. Just about every game they have reduced has shot back up the chart, with the most notable risers being DiRT 3 up from #2...

Tennis games – good for net profit

Fore! With tennis on the television this weekend both Virtua Tennis 4 and Top Spin 4 re-enter the top ten at #5 and #8 respectively. Oddly though, Fight Night Champion dropped down the chart despite boxing being on the picture box as well. As predicted last week, with...

Duke jerks down the chart

With more negative reviews of Duke Nukem Forever appearing (EDGE’s 3/10 is one of the latest), 2K’s shoddy shooter has lost the top spot of the chart. But not to Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as you may expect but rather Zumba Fitness. Link rides in at a...

Duke takes up the throne

Publishers – if you want your game to go straight to #1 no matter how rubbish it is, just delay it for 13 years and release it without letting anybody review it first. Case point: Duke Nukem Forever, which takes #1 in the UK chart this week. Take...

Crime pays for Rockstar

For a third week in a row L.A. Noire holds onto the top spot of the chart. Brink celebrates a fourth week in the top 5 too but Bethesda’s own Hunted: The Demon’s Forge hasn’t been so lucky having to make do with #14. Considering the lack of...
