UK Chart: Aliens Announces Arrival At Top
It is a new week and there is a new UK number one and a new best launch of the year.
Aliens: Colonial Marines tops Dead Space 3 (-57%) as heavy losses push the latter down to second. Aliens games have typically done well in the past, despite critics opinion, with Aliens vs Predator making £14 million in lifetime sales and Alien Trilogy making £10 million.
FIFA 13 (+39%) drops one place, despite promotions increasing sales over last week. Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Far Cry 3 also drop one place each to complete the top five.
Assassin’s Creed III (+50%) leaps six places to sixth with promotional sales, ahead of Need for Speed Most Wanted and Just Dance 4 which both remain unchanged at seventh and eighth respectively. Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed goes up one place to ninth and Halo 4 jumps three to complete the top ten.
Super Scribblenauts (+83%) reenters to UK Chart after scores of sales under £5.
