Train2Game News: UK Top 20 – 15.10.12

On Monday mornings I will now be posting the top 20 UK games chart from UKIE to keep you all updated.

 
Dishonored has come in as the highest new IP this year at number 2 but nothing can knock FIFA off the top spot for the third week running. It is interesting to see that Skyrim and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are still in the top 20.

Week ending 13 October 2012

Train2Game News: UK Charts – LEGO Batman 2 makes it 4 in a row at No.1

LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes makes it four weeks in a row at No.1 as it continues to hold onto top spot in the charts, matching the same number of consecutive weeks FIFA 12 spent in the position earlier this year.

There’s no movement in the entire top three, with London 2012: The Official Video Game and The Amazing Spider-Man remaining at No.2 and No.3 respectively.  Dead Island Game of the Year Edition moves up one to No.4, while Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future soldier jumps four to No.5.

The Train2Game Blog recently spoke to Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Creative Director Jean-Marc Geoffroy and Ubisoft Development Director Adrian Lacey, with the pair offering advice to Train2Game students on getting into the industry.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 moves up two to No.6 in its 36th week on sale, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim dropping one to No.7. FIFA 12 is No.8 in its 42nd week in the charts, with Spec Ops: The Line dropping five to No.9 in its third week on sale. Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games completes the top ten.

New release from Namco Bandai and Saber Interactive, Inversion, doesn’t even make the top 40 in its first week on sale, debuting at No.50.

The UKIE Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 10 for the week ending 14th July is therefore as follows:

1. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Warner Bros)
2. London 2012: The Official Video Game (Sega)
3. The Amazing Spider-Man (Activision)
4. Dead Island Game of the Year Edition (Koch Media)
5. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (Ubisoft)
6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (EA)
7. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
8. FIFA 12 (EA)
9. Spec Ops: The Line (2K Games)
10. Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (Sega)

It’s a quiet week for new releases, but new games to hit the shelves include Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for Nintendo 3DS.

What are your thoughts on the charts this week? Are you one of those people who’ve bought LEGO Batman 2? Will it stay No.1?

Train2Game News: UK Charts – LEGO Batman 2 No.1 for third week running

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes holds top spot of the UK charts for the third week in a row, the position the Warner Brothers title has remained since being released last month.

London 2012: The Official Video Game from SEGA sees sales almost double as it rises two places to No.2 as the Olympic Games get closer.  Last week’s new releases The Amazing Spider-Man and Spec Ops: The Line both drop one place each to No.3 and No.4 respectively.

New entry Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition completes the top five.  Originally released in September last year, the standard edition of Dead Island held top spot for two weeks.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is up one place to No.6, moving above FIFA 12 which drops to No.7. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 re-enters the top ten at No.8 after moving up 26 places after price promotions at various retailers.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier slides down three to No.9, while FIFA Street moves up four to complete the top ten.

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy for 3DS reaches No.19 in its first week on sale, while physical copies of Funcom’s The Secret World see it make No.38 in the retail charts. However, the figures don’t take into account digital sales.

The UKIE Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 10 for the week ending 7th July 2012 is therefore as follows:

1. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Warner Bros)
2. London 2012: The Official Video Game (Sega)
3. The Amazing Spider-Man (Activision)
4. Spec Ops: The Line (2K Games)
5. Dead Island Game of the Year Edition (Koch Media)
6. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
7. FIFA 12 (EA)
8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Activision)
9. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (Ubisoft)
10. FIFA Street (EA)
