Watch Dogs holds on in second, whilst EA Sports UFC fell out of favour somewhat, tumbling from the third spot to #7. There are no other major moves in the chart this week, with two titles...

Sniper Elite 3 Tops UK Sales Chart

Number one with a bullet.

505 Games' Sniper Elite 3 has bulleted to the top of the UK All Formats Sales Chart this week, narrowly beating out Watch Dogs and EA Sports UFC. The franchise is on the up. The first Sniper Elite only reached the number 15 spot back in 2005, and Sniper Elite 2 reached the top spot in 2012, albeit after being on the...

World Cup Fever Pushes FIFA 14 To Top of UK Chart

Still going strong

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup coming up in just a few short weeks, World Cup fever seems to have pushed FIFA 14 to the top of the UK All Formats sales chart for the week ending May 17th. Strangely, the official 2014 FIFA World Cup game - which is FIFA 14 dressed up in World Cup-coloured clothes -2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is...

Titanfall Back To Top Spot in UK Games Chart

Kinect Sports Rivals misses the top ten

Titanfall was the best selling game in the UK this past week, after the release of the Xbox 360 version spiked a 220% boost in sales to push it up to the top of the pile. LEGO: The Hobbit was unable to reach the peak, debuting in the #2 position, just five places ahead of March's LEGO game of the month, The...

No Change at Top of UK Games Chart

Titanfall holding steady at 3

There was no change this week at the upper echelons of the UK's official All Formats Sales Chart, with PS4-exclusive Infamous: Second Son holding court at the top. In second position, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes sticks firm, whilst Titanfall holds on in third. Elsewhere, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls enters the...

UK Chart: Thief Tops All Formats and Xbox One Chart

Stolen the title.

Eidos Montreal's Thief has topped the first UK game sales chart of March, beating away tough competition from the likes of other newcomers Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. The game reportedly demolished the week one sales of the last title in the series - Thief: Deadly Shadows - and pushed last...

FIFA 14 Leads First Full UK Xbox One Chart

Forza crosses the line in second

The first full GFK Chart-Track official UK Xbox One chart has been released, and it makes for interesting reading. This isn't the first chart ever though, since Call of Duty: Ghosts was released early, meaning that it was included in a chart all on its own last week (it slips to #4 today.) This is the first full...

Bioshock and Tomb Raider Boost UK Market

Revenue up, sales down.

As is usually the case, the UK game industry went through a bit of a boost in March, after a quiet first two months of the year. Even with two of the main players in the console market coming into their twilight years, releases such as Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, and Gears of War: Judgment helped get the cash registers...

Bioshock Infinite Holds On At The Top

Defiance in at 3

Bioshock Infinite has held on to the top position in the UK All Formats chart, despite second week sales declining by a steeper-than-usual 75%. The week wasn't strong for videogame sales in general, with all of the top ten barring Defiance - which enters the chart at number 3 - selling considerably less copies than they did last...

Gears Takes Top Spot

Lara down to second place

Gears of War: Judgment has taken the top spot in the UK All Formats Chart, marking the end of Lara Croft's two-week reign at the top, and presenting Microsoft with their first top billing of the year. After a 44% drop in sales week-on-week, Tomb Raider slips to second position, ahead of another new entry in the form of...

Crysis 3 Resists - Holds Number One Spot

Two weeks on the bounce.

Crysis 3 held off the advances of the erstwhile FIFA 13 this week, to ensure a second week at the top of the UK all formats sales chart. The rest of the chart was relatively quiet, unsurprisingly, with the only addition to the top 20 being a re-entry, in the form of the excellent Red Dead Redemption: Game of The Year...

Crysis 3 Takes Number One Spot

Metal Gear Defeated.

In an interesting week in the UK All Formats chart, Crysis 3 has defeated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance to take the top position on the ladder. Only 5,500 sales seperated the two, and the fact that Crysis 3 is also available for PC has clearly made all the difference. 57% of sales of Crytek's title were on Xbox 360...

Aliens: Colonial Marines Takes UK Number 1

Signourney Would Be Proud

Monday is up, and that can only mean one thing - the official UK game sales charts are in! Good news for Sega this week, as Aliens: Colonial Marines has blasted its way to the top spot despite more than a few qualms about the final product's quality. It snipes the bestseller position out of the hands of EA's Dead Space 3,...

Child of Eden Lands in UK Charts at Number 25

Hardly a Heavenly Star-t

After months of waiting and hype, last Friday saw the long-awaited release of Child of Eden in the UK, but that anticipation failed to send the game shooting up the charts as it landed at number 25 in the UK All-Formats chart. It was still the second highest-selling Kinect game of the week — Zumba Fitness: Join the Party...

Kinect Sports and Dance Central Lead New Year Software Charge

Two risers and three re-entries

With Kinects nestled under countless Christmas trees two weeks ago, it makes sense that the software would enjoy a sales resurgence as families spend their pennies to see what exists past Kinect Adventures. The updated UK sales charts show five titles moving up the ranks, with two breaking into the top ten. Kinect...

Japanese Xbox 360 Sales Triple Thanks to Kinect

"What's 3 x 0?" you ask

Despite most Japanese gamers having to play Kinect in tiny apartments like this, the sensor's launch has still helped Microsoft to shift more hardware than the previous week: three times more, in fact. Of course, a 200% sales increase isn't likely to bring with it incredible sales figures, the machine shifting 7,083 units...

Kinect Sports Scores Top Five Place in UK Charts

8 titles in top 40

Whilst there was never any doubt that Call of Duty: Black Ops was going to land in the chart top spot, the launch of Kinect should have made the top 10 a more exciting line-up than usual, but disappointingly only one title for the sensor made the higher reaches of the chart. With sales of Kinect Adventures seemingly not counted,...
