UKIE Game Charts, Week 37 2013

Saints Row IV

Saints Row IV

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.

Take a close look at this week’s charts. Given the events of the past 24 hours, next week’s document is likely to look rather different (but at the same time, kinda similar). Saints Row IV is still sittin’ pretty in the top spot, holding off a last-minute rush from the new Kingdom Hearts. To add a little context here, the original game in the series launched for PS2 back in 2002, it didn’t get any higher than #35. Another exciting new release: Puppeteer creeping in at #40.

While most of the top 10 remains static, it seems that strategy fans have cooled on Total War: Rome II pretty quickly – an 87% drop in sales sees it plummet from #2 to #10, giving not one, but two Lego games the boost they needed to get up into the top ten.
