Ukie Week 43 2013 UK Video Games Charts

The third installment in Warner’s Batman: Arkham series debuts at No1 (as did the previous two), entitled ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ (developed in-house by WB Games Montreal) and sells almost exactly the same in week 1 as the first in the series ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’ (Sep 2009, developed by Rocksteady, published by Eidos).  The defining title in terms of week 1 sales was the second in the series ‘Batman: Arkham City’ (Oct 2011 with close to double the week 1 sales of the third installment, also developed by Rocksteady, published by Warner).  The all-time best-selling Batman game in the UK is ‘Lego Batman: The Videogame’ from 2008 (published by Warner, developed by Traveller’s Tales).  Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘GTA V’ (-28%) drops to No2 followed at No3 by EA’s ‘FIFA 14’ (-21%) and at No4 by Activision’s ‘Skylanders Swap Force’ (-50%).  2 titles climb back in to the Top 10 this week thanks to a successful hardware promotion: Warner’s ‘Lego The Lord of the Rings’ climbs 11 places to No8 (+266%) and Mind Candy’s ‘Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed’ climbs 20 places to No9 (+350%).  Ubisoft debut at No15 with ‘Rocksmith 2014 Edition’, EA debut at No18 with ‘The Sims 3: Into the Future’ and Activision debut at No27 with ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’.
