Ukie Week 41 2012 UK Video Games Charts

It’s a hat-trick of weeks at the top for ‘FIFA 13’ (-63%), but newcomer ‘Dishonored’ from Bethesda debuts strongly at No2 with the biggest new IP launch so far this year (ahead of Sleeping Dogs).  There are 3 more new entries that make the Top 10 - ‘Pokemon Black Version 2’ at No3, ‘Pokemon White Version 2’ at No5 and Take 2’s ‘XCOM: Enemy Unknown’ reboot at No7.  Even with the sales of both new DS Pokemon games combined, Dishonored would have still been at No2.  Sales of ‘Resident Evil 6’ fall 78% as it drops from No2 to No4, while ‘Just Dance 4’ also drops 2 places, this despite a sales increase of 36%.  XCOM is Take 2’s biggest selling title this week as ‘Borderlands 2’ (-44%) drops from No3 to No8, ahead of ‘F1 2012’ (-32%) and ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ (-17%).  There is a debut at No27 for Pqube’s ‘WRC 3: FIA World Rally Championship’, while Microsoft’s new Kinect title ‘Fable: The Journey’ debuts at No37.
