UK Charts – Gears of War Still Popular, Enters at Number One

by on March 25, 2013
 

UK-Charts-Gears-of-War-WinsDespite concerns that it was too soon for another Gears of War, it seems the public have gone out and purchased it anyway, as it enters the UK charts in first place.

Tomb Raider stays strong in second place, whilst Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has a strong second week, dropping only one place to fifth. As you’d expect, SimCity has dropped a little, to 8th place, whilst God of War: Ascension isn’t doing too badly in only its second week, at number 6. Released last week, we also had The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, and whilst you can read our review of that one tomorrow morning, it seems the public did go and buy it, as it charts at number 3 for launch week. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U and 3DS enters in 7th place.

This week, BioShock Infinite is released, and if that doesn’t enter in first place, I’ll buy a hat so I can eat it. Anyway, as always you can read our review of the title by clicking its name in the table below.

    Monster Hunter was sold out at both my local GAME stores, yet both had mountains of Gears. Asked the staff how many copies of Monster Hunter they had had and they said that they only received about ten on each format and had been turning customers away all weekend. One store wasn’t even sent enough copies to cover the pre-orders they had taken for it!

    I wonder what version sold most, though? I’d bet the 3DS version outsold the Wii U one!

    Edit: I checked, 3DS version did outself Wii U, but not by much!

    I’m responsible for one notch on both those charts! In my defence, my girlfriend wants to play it as well so we’ve played 3DS and Wii U local multiplayer…
