UKIE Week 08 2012 UK Video Games Charts

 
Almost a year after Nintendo’s 3DS launch (week 12, 2011) and we welcome Sony’s Vita hand-held, available in Wi-Fi and 3G versions (79% of Vita sales in week 1 were for the Wi-Fi version). There are 23 Vita launch titles at retail (compared to 16 for 3DS week 1), but 2 key Vita titles account for 50% of sales units and lie at No1 & No2 on the All Formats Chart. Sony’s Vita ‘Uncharted: Golden Abyss’ is the new No1 (31% of week 1 Vita sales) and EA’s Vita ‘FIFA Football’ is the new No2 (18% of Vita sales). In comparison, the week 1 No1 on 3DS ‘Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition’ accounted for 15% of 3DS week 1 software sales. Last week’s No1, THQ’s ‘UFC Undisputed 3’ drops to No3 (-53%) and Ubisoft’s ‘Rayman Origins’ climbs 31 places to No5 (+197%), powered by a new Vita version, No4 on the Vita Top 20. The biggest non-Vita launch is EA’s re-boot of UK developer Bullfrog’s ‘Syndicate’ which debuted back in week 26, 1993 for Amiga and PC. The new ‘Syndicate’ is Swedish (developed by StarBreeze) and debuts here at No7 for 360/PS3/PC. The next new entry at No11 is Sony’s Vita ‘Wipeout 2048’, actually No3 on the Vita Top 20. Following on from that we have Nintendo’s Wii ‘The Last Story’ at No15, developed by Mistwalker, the studio of Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the Final Fantasy series of videogames. New at No17 is Bethesda’s ‘Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition’ which contains all mission expansion add-on packs.
