Ukie Week 26 2012 UK Video Games Charts

 
There is a super hero tussle at the top of the charts this week, however ‘Lego Batman 2’ (-17%) comfortably sees off newcomer ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ to hold on to No1. Activision’s film tie-in has to settle for No2 with 56% of sales on the Xbox 360 version, 42% on PS3 and remainder shared amongst Wii, 3DS and DS. There are a total of 3 new entries in the Top 5 with 2K Games/Take 2 entering at No3 with ‘Spec Ops: The Line’, followed by the debut of Sega’s ‘London 2012: The Official Video Game’ at No4. As a result ‘FIFA 12’ (-12%) takes a tumble, falling from No2 to No5. ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’ slips down the chart from No3 to No6 despite sales only down by 4% thanks to its launch this week on PC. The new Dawnguard DLC for Skyrim must have played a part in the successful former No1 climbing one place up to No7 (+121%). Take 2 and EA are the only publishers this week with more than one title in the Top 10 with ‘Max Payne 3’ (-20%) at No8 and ‘Battlefield 3’ (-17%) at No9. The launch of ‘Metal Gear Solid HD Collection’ (+532%) on PS Vita propels it back into the Top 10 at No10 and to the top of the Vita chart by a large margin. It’s one of the biggest Vita launches outside the console’s first week, only a small number behind ‘Unit 13’ and ‘Gravity Rush’. Another HD Collection is only one place behind as ‘The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy: Classics HD’ on PS3 is new at No11. Retailer promotions give both ‘Mass Effect 3’ (+101%) and ‘Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary’ (+101%) a boost, the former up from No36 to No15 and the latter back in the Top 40 at No21.
