UKIE Game Charts, Week 18 2012

We love charts here at Player Attack, and one of the highlights of our week is receiving the latest details from UKIE, who send us the 40 best-selling titles in Britain, as announced by the The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment.

We’re not one for sweeping generalisations, but the UK charts are typically full of football, rhythm games and other big-name AAA titles the likes of which you can see anywhere. For that reason, it’s refreshing to see a controversial shooter popping up in top spot, suggesting that the Brits really do just want the opportunity to take out Hitler.

(Worth noting: This is not 505 Games‘ first time at the top: The publisher is also responsible for the über-popular Zumba fitness series, proving variety really is the spice of life.)
