UK Charts – BioShock Infinite on Top for Second Week

GodisaGeek: "With Defiance being the only new release last week, it was fairly likely this would happen, but regardless, it’s great to see one of the best games of the year so far staying atop the UK video game charts: BioShock Infinite is still number one." (3DS, BioShock: Infinite, Defiance, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

God of War already out of the top 20?
Tomb Raider is kicking ass and taking names!
Edit: @Jamal, I'm sure there will be a couple of disagrees for Judgement, but the bulk will come from the other side. Those folks just can't take any criticism towards their precious exclusives.
Watch that Ezz fella come in here in tears to set you straight!

Yup. I wonder if I'll be given as much grief for noting that Tomb Raider is selling more on 360 than Gears as I was when the same was true regarding Tomb Raider on PS3 and GoW.
Although maybe I should wait for the individual charts to see if this is true.
I'd say its pretty clear however that these 2 prequels were largely unnecessary.

Thanx for the info bro. Bubble up for helpful.

Edit: Why the caps for the 360 games? It's cos they are better isn't it? - jokes people, lighten up. Also, Hi Ezz, hehehe

deserves to be top

What I find interesting is that Lego City is not in there. I thought this game would sell quite well. I thought it would be in the top 20 for a few weeks.

According to vgchartz, consider it how you will, so far its sold 0.09million. I have no idea whether its selling well or horrid but honestly, a new ip like this should at least sell half a million IMO. Such a fun title.

Bad example. The sales for the second week in USA, Canada and the first week for Europe don't show up. The game easily has around 125k-140k now. Also, why 500k? ZombiU got a lot of attention yet it only sold 400k.

Especially when other LEGO games are still in there.

I agree. Lego City imo is one of the best lego games I have played well I say I have played more like ive seen my other half play. She is not a gamer when when I got lego city she asked if she could have ago last weekend and spend 15 hours playing it over the weekend.

I hope it gets up to a million as this is one of the best games so far this year. But saying that I have yet to see anything on TV here in the UK advising the game and its been the same for Gears to. GoW got a lot of TV time here though and so is Tomb Raider
and BioShock Infinite so seeing them at the top is properly about right as the WiiU sales are still low over here in the UK.

Don't worry. After 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Pikmin 3, etc... will be released on the Wii U, people will feel more comfortable with buying titles such as Lego City Undercover and ZombiU. A lot of Ninty fans are not sold on Wii U, but after all the big series come out, they may even consider some of the older titles. I am sure until 2017 Lego City Undercover can reach 1 million.

Pikmin isnt a big selling series though, never has been i dont know where ppl get this idea from. On wii it sold horribly even for a redone version of the old one and on gamecube it sold maybe a million.
AZWification2  +   915d ago
Pikmin 3 is getting more marketing and media attention than Pikmin 1 and 2 combined. It can easily reach 2, maybe even 3 million copies if Nintendo tries hard.
