Ukie Week 32 2013 UK Video Games Charts

‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (+13%) digs in at the top of the All Formats Chart for a third successive week.  It is Microsoft’s longest unbroken run at No1since ‘Forza Motorsport 2’ held top spot for 3 weeks back in W25 2007.  With the start of the Premiership football season a week away, ‘FIFA 13’ (+24%) continues its rise back up the chart, climbing another two places to No2.  ‘The Smurfs 2’ (+35%) also continues to grow in popularity, up two places to No3 after 4 weeks on release.  The ‘Tales’ series of titles might not be a big name in the UK, but this week’s only new entry, Japanese RPG ‘Tales of Xillia’ still manages to give Namco Bandai a No4 debut.  ‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf’ (-16%) drops two places to No5, but this week outsells the critically acclaimed ‘The Last of Us’ (-25%) which has to settle for No6.  Familiar faces complete the Top 10 line-up with ‘Black Ops II’ (+9%) up one place to No7, ‘Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes’ (-3%) down one place to No8 and ‘Tomb Raider’ (+0%) and ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (-7%) both  non-movers at No9 and No10 respectively.
