Ukie Week 42 2013 UK Video Games Charts

Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘GTA V’ (-31%) takes a second consecutive week at No1 and its 3rd in total since launch.  EA’s ‘FIFA 14’ (-29%) stays at No2 ahead of this week’s big new release.  The new wave of Skylanders lands with ‘Skylanders Swap Force’ arriving at No3.  Developer duties have passed from Toys For Bob to Vicarious Visions (360, Wii U, PS3) and Beenox (Wii) for the next outing while N-Space continues to develop the 3DS version.  ‘Swap Force’ doesn’t manage to match predecessor ‘Skylanders Giants’ which made it to No2 this time last year with just over 35% more sales than Activision Blizzards’ latest release.  Wii continues to be the most popular format with 37% of sales, with Wii U accounting for another 4%.  Last week’s new Pokémon titles both drop a place with ‘Pokémon X’ at No4 (-59%) and ‘Pokémon Y’ at No5 (-58%).  Another debut title from last week slips a place with Quantic Dreams/Sony’s ‘Beyond Two Souls’ (-60%) down to No6.  4J Studios’ ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (+19%) which hasn’t been out of the Top 10 since its release 17 weeks ago climbs a place to No7.  Both ‘F1 2013’ (-36%) and ‘Just Dance 2014’ (-30%) slip two places to No8 and No9 respectively.  Other major toys-to-life title ‘Disney Infinity’ (+20%) rounds off the Top 10.  This means that new Wii U/3DS title ‘Sonic: Lost World’ has to settle for a debut at No11.
