U.K. Sales Charts

GfK Chart-Track offers this week's U.K. sales charts, with the top 20 full-priced PC list showing pretty static results, as The Sims 3: Island Paradise retains the top spot. Things are also pretty stable on the PC bargain bin chart, but there's some action on the all formats/prices chart where Minecraft for Xbox 360 sits on top, usurping The Last of Us, which drops to number three as newcomer Pimkin 3 debuts at number two. Here's their write-up:

It’s a surge in sales of Microsoft’s ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (climbing from No2 to No1 / +74%) that keeps Nintendo from claiming a first Wii U No1 on the All Formats Chart.

Since launch in week 48, 2012 we’ve had 43 Wii U titles (5 from Nintendo). This week Nintendo add 2 more first party titles, the first being ‘Pikmin 3’, which debuts at No2 (Pikmin 2 debuted way back in week 41, 2004 on Gamecube at No32 on the All Formats Chart, subsequently released on Wii in week 17, 2009). The other Nintendo release this week is also for Wii U, ‘New Super Luigi U’ at No 13 on the All Formats Top 40.

Sony’s PS3 ‘The Last of Us’ (-16%) has to content itself with 6 straight weeks at the Top, dropping down to No3 this week. Aside from the Nintendo Wii U releases there’s little else to report, with last week’s big new release ‘Dynasty Warriors 8’ (-48%) from Tecmo Koei dropping from No5 to No18 and Ubisoft’s ‘The Smurfs 2’ (+213%) making an appearance at No25, having been released the previous week.
