UK Charts - Dead Island Riptide is the New Number One

GodisaGeek: "It seems that the UK game buying public has spoken: Dead Island Riptide was the most popular game released last week, because as per usual, the best selling new game has taken the top spot in the UK charts.

Outselling Star Trek (3rd place), Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (doesn’t make the top 40), and the long awaited (in some cases) re-release of cult classic Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut (27th place), publisher Deep Silver will be pretty happy." (3DS, Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Star Trek, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Update Update: Correct text should read "Outselling Star Trek (4th place), Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (3rd), and the long awaited (in some cases) re-release of cult classic Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut (38th place), publisher Deep Silver will be pretty happy."

I'm gonna assume it's because there's nothing else to play, it's a shame that cr@p like this sells

sorry but this is good solid fun game, and on PC the gaming community makes some good mods, take that hate and goes cry in your corner someplace

Good for the UK people, rewarding another crappy game.

Wasn't DmC number one on the UK charts as well? Guess being on top over there doesn't account for much.

So what if this game hit number 1 in the UK, what's your problem with that ???.

You attacking the UK for what game's we buy is stupid and basically make's you sound like a dick.

Good for them glad they buy whatever games they want over there XD. I got it myself its not to bad for mind numbing slaughtering of Zombies. Sure it has some problems but it is a pretty decent game. Playing alone is not so much fun but when you get friends together it can be very entertaining.

@StraightPath and Statix

A lot of people have found this game to be really fun to play so get over yourselves its not like people are forcing you to come in here and talk about the game.

nice. i will get this game.

after the controversial Defiance reviews i no longer trust some reviewers opinion. defiance is a fantastic game, so maybe dead island riptide is great, too.

I really enjoyed Defiance as well. Was it the best game ever.. No.. But it is very fun to play just like Riptide is I recommend co-op it is a lot more enjoyable.

Yeah I would have to agree Defiance was a good game if you ask me I really like it.

bubbles for not following the crowd mate lol

I really enjoyed the first DI, I got it on release day and I have to say, it was like playing Borderlands, but with zombies and mainly melee weapons. It was quite heart pounding in some parts, outside was fine because it was bright and you could easily outrun anything pretty quickly, but inside buildings was weird. Just being isolated in narrow corridors, etc.

I didn't get DI:R though, it's on my list to get at some point, but I just have been busy with other games. I bought Deus Ex:HR a few weeks ago and have been concentrating on that. I've put a lot of hours into it so far, along with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and a bit of Monopoly Streets, I just didn't see the point in buying another game to put these games on hold.

I will get it eventually, it will probably drop in price by the time I do decide to get it.
