Saints Row IV retains UK #1 as Final Fantasy takes 3rd


Saints Row IV

Killer is Dead and Lost Planet 3 both fall outside top 20 in debut week

Saints Row IV has maintained its place at the top of the UK charts, as has last week’s number 2, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn manages third as it relaunches after a disastrous PC-only debut which called for the game to be thoroughly redesigned.

Rayman Legends and Madden NFL 25 stake their claims to sixth and seventh places respectively as hey hit the shops this week, but Capcom’s Lost Planet 3 can only manage 26th, with Suda 51’s much maligned Killer is Dead even further behind in 28th.

Assassin’s Creed III Climbs its Way to Number One in the UK


To no one’s surprise, Ubisoft’s latest entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise did incredibly well in the UK, debuting in the top spot.

The week prior, Danger Close’s Medal of Honor: Warfighter opened at number one, but has since dropped all the way down to sixth place. Perhaps the public caught on to the fact that it’s not a very good game?

FIFA 13 is holding strong in second place, with WWE ’13 and Football Manager 2013 right behind in third and fourth, respectively. Criterion’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted managed to race its way to fifth place on its opening week.
