Square Enix hold on to a 2nd week at No1 with United Front Games’ ‘Sleeping Dogs’ (-15%). New at No2 is THQ’s ‘Darksiders 2’ which does considerably better than the original Darksiders with 80% more units sold in week 1. Original Darksiders launched week 1, 2010 and was also developed by Vigil Games, a THQ studio. Nintendo’s 3DS ‘New Super Mario Bros 2’ (-25%) drops from a debut position of No2 to No3 this week and Sega drop one place to No4 with ‘London 2012: The Official Videogame’ (-31%) which has not been out of the Top 5 yet. A No4 position for ‘London 2012’ is a joint lowest chart placing for this title, shared with week 1 (week 26, 2012). The only other new entry this week is Activision Blizzard’s ‘Transformers: Fall of Cybertron’ at No5, which is the direct sequel to ‘Transformers: War for Cybertron’ released back in week 25, 2010, both games predominantly developed by High Moon Studios, an Activision studio.
