U.K. Sales Charts

The new GfK Chart-Track Listing of the 20 bestselling full-priced PC games in the U.K. is now updated for the week ending February 16th. In space no one can hear you scream "we're number one," but as shown on the chart, Aliens Colonial Marines takes top honors this week, pushing Football Manager 2013 to number two. This is similar to the all platforms chart, where Gearbox's new first-person shooter is likewise number one. That's the only truly new entry on either chart, where some Sims 3 SKUs also reappear.

Yeah, the first one was okay. But 2 & 3 were just awful, yet still made gobs of cash. Rottentomatoes has rating of 57%, 20%, and 36% for 1, 2, & 3 respectively. None were critically "fresh" yet they all made obscene profits. Just wondering if ACM is heralding that trend in gaming. Typically, the top sellers in gaming are typically also very highly rated critically.

I wonder if ACM is the game equivalent of Transformers, that is, a movie that was critically panned but still went on to make 100s of millions of dollars.

Aside from the sellout blasphemy of making all the autobots GM cars (bumblebee is a VW dammit! and none of the autobots were Chevys!... k there was a vet in the group IIRC) and that lame gov secret agent dude, the first Transformers was a decent flick. Even the third movie, which was shit, at least had top notch production values.
