UKIE Week 14 2012 UK Video Games Charts

 
The force is strong this week as Microsoft’s ‘Kinect Star Wars’ brings EA’s five week run at the top to an end, pushing ‘FIFA Street’ (+3%) down to No2. It’s the first Star Wars game to reach No1 in the All Formats Chart since ‘Star Wars: The Force Unleashed’ back in W39 2008. It’s also the first game that requires use of the Kinect Sensor to top the chart. EA have still had a good Easter holiday, grabbing the rest of the Top 5 with ‘Mass Effect 3’ (+0%) down one place to No3, ‘FIFA 12’ (+48%) up one place to No4 and ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13’ (-10%) slipping two places to No5. There are healthy holiday sales uplifts for the rest of the Top 10 with ‘Modern Warfare 3’ (+76%) up one place to No6, ‘SSX’ (+72%) gaining 3 places, up to No7 and ‘Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games’ (+66%) up one to No8. Previous No1s ‘Battlefield 3’ (+55%) and ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ (+57%) round off the Top 10 at No’s 9 and 10 respectively. ‘Skylanders’ (+130%) and ‘Moshi Monsters’ (+92%) make the most of Easter Holiday spending, surging up the chart to No’s 12 and 13. Price promotions propel ‘Street Fighter X Tekken’ (+141%), WWE ’12 (+110%) and ‘Sonic Generations’ (+88%) back into the Top 40 at No’s 20, 22 and 24, while the only other new entry this week is ‘Devil May Cry HD Collection’ debuting at No18.
