U.K. Sales Charts

GfK Chart Track offers their weekly analysis of game sales in the U.K. There's a new sheriff in town on the PC full-price chart, as The Sims 3: Island Paradise lands (islands?) at number one and Company of Heroes 2 debuts at number two, while World of Warcraft: Battle Chest holds onto the top spot on the budget PC chart. And on the all platforms/all prices chart, The Last of Us is still first, while Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is the new number two, Island Paradise is number five, Deadpool joins at number six, and Company of Heroes 2 debuts at number 10. Here's the write-up:

Sony and Naughty Dog’s PS3 exclusive ‘The Last Of Us’ (-35%) remains at No1 for a third consecutive week.

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 edition of ‘Minecraft’ debuts at No2 and Nintendo’s 3DS ‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf’ drops down 1 place to No3 after 2 weeks at No2 (-25%). EA’s ‘FIFA 13’ also drops down 1 place to No4 although sales rocket +43% over last week thanks to the keenly priced 360/PS3 versions. There are a further 3 new entries within the Top 10 this week: debuting at No5 is EA’s ‘The Sims 3: Island Paradise’, the 10th PC Expansion Pack in the series and the second this year, after ‘The Sims 3: University Life’ back in week 10. Right behind and new at No6 is Activision/Blizzard’s Marvel Comics ‘Deadpool’ for 360/PS3. Completing the new releases is Sega’s ‘Company of Heroes 2’ on PC, new at No10 and which becomes the 7th game to be released on a Tuesday this year (the last being ‘Defiance’ back in early April).

The original ‘Company of Heroes’ debuted back in September 2006 and was developed in Canada by Relic, at that time a THQ studio (also known for ‘Homeworld’/‘Warhammer 40K’ games). The follow-up is still a Relic-developed title, but they are of course now a Sega studio
