Saints Row IV Beats Splinter Cell To Top Of UK Chart

by on August 27, 2013

Saints Row IV has topped the UK videogame chart despite selling fewer copies in its first week than Saints Row The Third.

The latest and most barmy installment of Volition’s crime sim was still the year’s fourth biggest launch however – behind Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us.

New entry Splinter Cell: Blacklist sits in second place, with Skylander’s rival Disney Infinity debuting in third.

Take Two’s XCOM spin-off The Bureau: XCOM Declassified entered at tenth while Wii U-exclusive The Wonderful 101 sadly suffered a predictably disappointing debut, entering at 22nd.

The rest of the top 10 was as follows…

01. Saints Row 4 (Deep Silver)
02. Splinter Cell: Blacklist (Ubisoft)
03. Disney Infinity (Disney)
04. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (Microsoft)
05. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Activision)
06. FIFA 13 (EA)
07. Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Nintendo)
08. Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Warner)
09. The Last of Us (Sony)
10. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (Take-Two)

    The biggest issue with The Wonderful 101, from what I can gather, is that everyone I’ve spoken to about it is either short of cash, or doesn’t know if the full game is actually any good! Most have picked up Pikmin 3 and are holding off on Wonderful until they’ve got a gap in their schedule. Not good.

    Would be interested to know how the digital figures were though, considering the Pikmin + Wonderful offer…
