UK Charts - Aliens: Colonial Marines Enters in First Place

GodisaGeek: "That’s right: 1st! Bet you didn’t see that one coming. EA continue to enjoy the seemingly permanent spot inside the top 10 with FIFA 13, Dead Space 3 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Ubisoft aren’t doing too badly either, as Far Cry 3 seems to still be selling enough to stay reasonably high up in the charts." (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Okay, now THAT was immature. Seriously, you're going to criticize an entire nation of people over estimated charts? First of all, there are no new games for the Wii U, let alone any AAA titles so the Wii U has not sold strongly recently in ANY region.

Furthermore, Aliens has a ton of hype around it and it wouldn't surprise me if it ultimately sold moderately well in the US AS WELL as the UK, and not everyone frequents the internet or checks reviews.

Honestly, keep the ignorance to a minimum. I think we see enough of it on any negative Wii U news.

Um, actually I think a fair few saw this coming!

It makes sense; years of hype and everyone looking forward to it/talking about it and then one week of bad press...

It was always going to get good initial sales, but what's important is whether people are pleased with their purchase...a PC metacritic user score of 3.6/10 suggests not.

*Edit: @Wiium64, hur hur, yo a clever 1 eye kan tel...you're so right, because all the games in the list are crappy, right? Wrong. Way to insult a nation smh

This game has had tons of hype for a couple years, and as often as some reviews come out stating a game is mediocre and the game is still fun. Maybe alot of people were just taking a chance on the game.

I would like to play the game and find out for myself if it is good or not. I think that is what I'll do.

Because everyone in UK is just stupid or something... Either way, goof for them, I am pretty sure the game didn't do so hot if you consider sales all over the world.
