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.

There’s a few things rearranging themselves in the top half of the charts this week: Crysis 3 has shot (like an arrow) into the #1 spot, ahead of fellow debutant Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Both of them have contributed to the 84% drop in sales for last week’s winner, Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is now lurking down at #5.

This is the first time in 2013 that we’ve seen two new games in the two top spots. Proving that it can be useful to be available on three platforms instead of just two consoles, Crysis 3 picked up an extra 5,500 gamers – and that’s not counting online sales. Interestingly as well, the two games appeal to different audiences: 57% of Crysis 3 sales were on Xbox 360, while Revengeance sold 61% on PS3.
