Ukie Week 33 2012 UK Video Games Charts

 
Square Enix and developer United Front Games’ new title ‘Sleeping Dogs’ is at the top of our All Formats chart this week. While taking the No1 spot it also becomes the fifth best selling game on first week sales in 2012. It means Nintendo’s much anticipated ‘New Super Mario Bros 2’ has to settle for No2 spot, a still impressive achievement as the title is only available on 3DS. It also matches its predecessor ‘New Super Mario Bros’ which hit the charts at No2 back in Week 26 2006. With the curtain coming down on the Olympics ‘London 2012: The Official Video Game’ (-37%) slips to No3 on the podium. ‘Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes’ (+20%) drops from No2 to No4 despite an increase in sales. Mario appears twice in our Top 10 swapping Luigi for Sonic this time as ‘Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games’ (-18%) slides from No3 to No5. Impressive figures boosted by retailer promotions see both ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’ (+46%) and ‘Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7’ (+94%) re-enter the Top 10 at No8 and No10.
