EA’s Dead Space 3 was the sole new release in Chart Track’s listing of the Top 40 best-selling games of the last week in the UK, and it also happened to take the top spot on the chart on debut ahead of consistent performers FIFA 13, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3 and Hitman: HD Trilogy.
This week’s chart is most probably the most boring of 2013 as eleven games in the Top Twenty, and seven games in the Top Ten, didn’t budge an inch on the listing. Interestingly, however, Dead Space 3’s launch week sales are down 26.6% compared to the launch of Dead Space 2. 65% of Dead Space 3 was sold on Xbox 360, while PlayStation 3 took 31% and PC the remaining 4%.
According to Chart Track, Xbox 360 has made more gains in the series since Dead Space 2’s release two years ago when Xbox 360 sales accounted for 56%, PS3 took 40% and PC 4%.
Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed is the biggest mover on the chart this week, gaining eight places and moving from No. 18 to No. 10 thanks to the release of the 3DS version of the game, and a 50% sales boost. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (sales down 63%) tumbles from No. 1 to No. 6 this week.
