U.K. Sales Charts

As usual, GfK Chart Track is here to brighten a Monday morning with their calculations of the bestselling games in the U.K. for the past week. The top 20 full-priced PC games chart has one new entry that's not a re-entry, as Europa Universalis IV joins the chart at number 10, while the Sims 3: Island Paradise continues to bask in the number one spot. It may remain there until it is eligible for the PC budget chart, as 40% of the full-priced chart is now Sims 3 SKUs. On the all platforms/all prices chart PAYDAY 2 steals the number one spot from Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Here's their summary of this week's activity:

‘Payday 2’ ends Minecraft’s three week run at the top of the chart and becomes 505 Games’ first No1 since Sniper Elite V2 back in Week 18 2012.

The sequel makes the jump to console following the great success of the original ‘Payday: The Heist’ which was released as a digital download only. ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (-14%) drops down to No2 while a strong boost in sales sees ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (+60%) continue its impressive climb back up to No3. ‘FIFA 13’ (-18%) drops two places to No4 while Nintendo’s ‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf’ (-9%) holds its position at No5.

Further down the chart there is little movement with ‘The Last of Us’(-19%) still holding at No6 while ‘The Smurfs 2’ (-31%) is pushed down from No3 to No7. Both ‘Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes’ (-0%) and ‘Tomb Raider’ (-10%) are non-movers at No8 and No9 respectively. Perhaps in anticipation of the hotly awaited next instalment, Take 2’s ‘Grand Theft Auto IV’ (+6%) just edges out Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (-10%) for the No10 spot.
