U.K. Sales Charts

The GfK Chart-Track Chart of the top 20 bestselling, full-priced PC games in the U.K. is now updated for the week ending May 11th. Football Manager 2013 sits on top after swapping places with last week's number one, The Sims 3. Their write up accompanying the charts returns, and reading it showed that while the PC chart is divided into a full-priced chart and a budget-priced chart, the all platforms chart has a combined all prices chart with more perspective, and this is what is covered by their blurb:

‘Dead Island: Riptide’ goes one week better than its predecessor by holding on to No1 for a third consecutive week, despite a 55% drop in sales.

‘Bioshock Infinite’ is the only other title so far this year to record three consecutive weeks at No1. Competition for top spot comes in the form of an unexpected familiar face, ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (+60%) which climbs 4 places to No2, boosted by strong retailer price promotions only 2 weeks after dropping out of the Top 10 for the first time. ‘Tomb Raider’ (-17%) clings on to No3 for a second week, while ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ (-36%) falls from No2 to No4. ‘FIFA 13’ (-19%) is still making its presence felt despite slipping one place to No5, keeping it ahead of ‘Bioshock Infinite’ (-10%) at No6. Recently budget-priced ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (+25%) is back in the Top 10 at No7 meaning that all Top 7 titles this week are former No1’s. 3DS title ‘Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins’ (-24%) is stuck at No8 for a third week, ahead of this week’s highest new entry ‘The Walking Dead’ from Telltale Games and Avanquest - now available on disc after previously being a digital-only title released episodically through Xbox Live, PSN and Steam.

‘Luigi’s Mansion 2’ (-12%) at No10 keeps this week’s only other new entry out of the Top 10 with PQube’s critically acclaimed ‘Persona 4 Arena’ having to settle for a debut at No11.
