A new week, a new month, a new number one in the gaming charts. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls has knocked The Last of Us: Remastered down to second place, while Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare has jumped right up to spot number three.
I’ve said it before, this is what happens when games aren’t released. ONE new game made it into the Top 40, Ultra Street Fighter IV entered at number 15. It’s not even a NEW game, really, it’s just an old game with ‘Ultra’ plonked on the end.
Sniper Elite III has kept the number one chart spot for another week which may seem unprecedented, but you know what? When you price a game at a figure people are willing to pay, it will sell well and have a decent success.
It’s nice when there’s a new number one in the charts, even better when it’s not an Electronic Arts game, which is why seeing Sniper Elite III at the top is a rather pleasant site indeed.
Watch Dogs is still hacking away at the top of the charts this week, despite a valiant effort by 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil shooting up to second place and a new entry just makes it into the top 20.
Titanfall must be more amazing than Spider-Man as it re-takes the top of the charts. It seems yet more people are still buying FIFA 14 as it takes second place and even Minecraft on the Xbox 360 creeps up in to fourth place.
Titanfall has kept the top spot for another week in the charts, Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition has actually climbed a couple of places. For a game that only has skin packs released for it, Minecraft X360 has lasted a long time in the top ten.
Titanfall has dislodged FIFA 14 from the top of the charts which is a relief, but it might only last for one week unless more people realise it’s now available for the Xbox 360 and go out to buy it. Please do, to hold off FIFA.
How does it do it? How can FIFA 14 keep selling so many copies? So there’s around 35 million gamers in the UK (approximated guess from the 33.6m in 2012), I would estimate around a third of those like FIFA games, wouldn’t they all have it by now?
inFamous: Second Son has made it to a second week at the top of the charts with only one new entry which is a bit of a surprise since it’s an expansion. Nothing of significance was released, so for an expansion to reach halfway, it shows things are still quiet.
