All it took to knock FIFA 12 off the top spot was a behemoth of an JRPG and the re-release of the biggest stealth action games of all time!
Yes, that’s right people, number one in the UK charts this week is Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIII-2. Our review of Final Fantasy XIII-2 hits the site at 11am tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Backing up XIII-2 is Konami’s release of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which we reviewed recently and scored a mammoth (yet worthy) 10/10. On top of that you can even check our our First Look XL of the title, in which you’ll see all the games on the disc with commentary; the works!
Before we go on, here’s an interesting statistic for you: Final Fantasy XIII-2 sold more PlayStation 3 copies than Xbox 360, but conversely, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection sold more on Xbox 360, than PlayStation 3. Furthermore, Soul Calibur V sold way more on Xbox 360 than PS3 too.
What of the rest of the charts though? Well, Battlefield 3 jumps to third, with FIFA 12 in fourth place. The magnificent Soul Calibur V enters the charts in 5th place, while the rest of the top 20 is pretty much “UK Charts by numbers”.
Next week Catherine is finally released on UK shores, so it’ll be interesting to see where that places the week after next! Go on, take a look at it!
