GfK's latest U.K. software charts are out, with their
all platforms/all prices chart
showing Minecraft: Xbox 360 has dug in for
another week at number one. On the
full-price PC chart
we see The Sims 3 Island Paradise enjoying a Corona in
the top spot, and the
chart has details on what bargains gamers are hunting. Here's
Microsoft’s ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’(-9%) holds the No1 spot in the
All Formats Chart for a second week.
It’s a quiet week for new releases and so the 4J studios developed title finds
itself largely unchallenged at the top. ‘The Last of Us’ (-2%) which held the
crown for six weeks prior to Minecraft’s ascent to the top climbs a place to No2
as does Nintendo’s ‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf’ (-0%) to No3. Following a strong
week on week boost in sales EA’s ‘FIFA 13’ (+33%) continues to climb back up the
chart reaching No4.
Even more impressive is the climb of Ubisoft’s ‘The Smurfs 2’ (+115%) which
following its debut two weeks ago flies up the chart to No5 no doubt helped by
their second outing on the big screen. Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty:
Black Ops II’ (+48%) is also back in the Top 10 up from No16 to No7 following a
near fifty percent boost in sales. Square Enix’s ‘Tomb Raider’ (+1%) is a
non-mover at No9 while ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (+11%) just edges out ‘Mario &
Luigi: Dream Team Bros’ to round off the Top 10 at No10.
