UK Software Chart: Lara defeats a god, a swarm and a sniper during week of March 16th

Written by: / / No Comments

In its second week on the chart, Lara Croft’s latest adventures in Tomb Raider have managed to stave off the advancing horde of brand new releases to remain at the top of Chart Track’s UK Software Sales listing, despite a massive 72% drop in sales compared to the week previous.

God of War: Ascension, a single platform game, has to make do with a debut chart position at No. 2, failing to reach the heights of No. 1 during its first week on sale as God of War III was able to do in 2010. To add insult to injury, Chart Track says that God of War III’s launch week sales were more than double those of God of War: Ascension…

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is another debut title and another single platform release, which manages to appear at No. 3 on debut. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, meanwhile, is out on multiple platforms and hits No. 4 during its first week on shelves ahead of last week’s No. 2, SimCity (sales down 50%), which this week shows up at No. 5.

FIFA 13 (sales down 14%) steps down only one place to No.6, Far Cry 3 (sales down 3%) moves up by one to No. 7, Crysis 3 (sales down 42%) slips two places to No. 8, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (sales down 14%) makes a similar move to No. 9, and The Sims 3: University Life (sales down 57%) tumbles from No. 4 last week to No. 10
