UK Chart: Bioshock Infinite Peaks Busy Week
Bioshock Infinite strikes the skyline of the UK chart at launch week, toppling Bioshock 2’s launch sales by around 9000 copies.
Bioshock Infinite’s chart-topping release has failed to topple best launch of the year so far: Tomb Raider, despite a mid-week release. Tomb Raider sticks at second with promotions lifting weekly sales by 45%.
Gears of War: Judgment (-63%) drops to third to accommodate the above movement, holding off opposition from FIFA 13 (+86%), which takes heavy sales improvements over last week. Luigi’s Mansion 2 is the second new release this week, entering solely on the 3DS and finishing the top five.
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is another new release, heading into sixth closely followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops II (+67%), which is yet another title with a large increase in sales.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is the final new release in the top ten, ahead of Assassin’s Creed III at ninth and Crysis 3 (+64%) which completes the top ten.
There are two other new releases this week; Lego City Undercover for the WiiU at twelfth, and the fourth entry in the Sly Cooper series, Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time for the PS3 and Vita, which stumbles disappointingly at thirty-first.
