U.K. Sales Charts

GfK Chart-Track offers their latest tabulations of U.K. game sales. Total War: ROME II (or as they call it, Rome: Total War II) debuts at number one on the full-price PC chart and the bargain bin shuffles itself a bit on their budget PC chart. On the big all platforms/all prices top 40 the new Total War game is number two as Saints Row IV retains the top spot, with the console release of Diablo III coming in at number three. Here's their write-up:

The sequel to 2004’s ‘Rome: Total War’ tops its predecessor by over 4,000 sales for week 1 and is the first of two event titles (Tuesday release) in our All Formats Top 10. Originally released by Activision, Sega have taken over publishing duties for the much anticipated sequel.

The second Tuesday release shows as a re-entry at No3 with Activision Blizzard’s ‘Diablo III’ making its first outing on Xbox 360 and PS3 following the PC release in May last year. Ubisoft’s ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ (-51%) drops two places to No4 while ‘Disney Infinity’ (-22%) slips a place to No5. ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (-23%) slips to its lowest position since launch at No6 but stays ahead of ‘Payday 2’ (+51%) which continues an impressive week-on-week climb to No7. New at No8 is Sony’s ‘Killzone: Mercenary’ which becomes the 5th best launch week for a PS Vita title. It’s also the second outing on a hand-held for the Killzone series following the launch of ‘Killzone: Liberation’ on PSP in W44 2006. Ubisoft’s ‘Rayman Legends’ (-16%) slips from No6 to No9 although it does receive a slight boost in the form of the PS Vita version which arrived this week. The final new entry in this week’s Top 10 is a first for home consoles as ‘Farming Simulator 2013’ arrives for both Xbox 360 and PS3.

Outside the Top 10, last week’s new releases ‘Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’ (-80%) and ‘Madden NFL 25’ (-51%) dip to No11 and No19 respectively. There’s also a debut in the Top 40 for ‘Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate’ at No35 from Tecmo Koei.
