Ukie Week 7 2013 UK Video Games Charts

Sega’s ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ (360/PS3/PC) debuts at No1 as the biggest new release of the year so far and is the second highest week 1 for an Alien franchise game, behind Sega’s own ‘Aliens vs Predator’ launched back in week 7, 2010 also on 360/PS3/PC.  Sega’s Aliens vs Predator’ is the highest grossing Aliens title at around £14m lifetime in the UK – previous best in this franchise is Acclaim’s ‘Alien Trilogy’ from 1996 (£10m) which was a massive PS1 seller, but was also released on Sega’s Saturn and on PC.  EA’s ‘Dead Space 3’ drops to No2 (-57%) and EA’s ‘FIFA 13’ drops one place to No3 (+39%) although sales increase 39% over last week, a phenomenon that affects many top-selling titles this week with the start of half term holidays boosting sales.  Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ climbs 6 places to No6 (+50%) thanks to half term and some price promotion, whilst last week’s No6, Namco Bandai’s  ‘Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch’ drops down to No25 (-59%).  Warner re-enter at No29 thanks to ‘Super Scribblenauts’ on DS (+83%) which is currently amazing value at less than £5.
