Volition and Deep Silver are making hay while the sun shines as Saints Row IV appears at the top of Chart Track’s Software Sales listing for the fourth week in a row, all before the thunderous clouds of Grand Theft Auto V roll into town tomorrow.
Sales of Saints Row IV are down 30%, but that’s enough to chart ahead of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix which debuts at No. 2. According to Chart Track, the original PlayStation 2 version of game only managed to hit No. 25 during its first week on sale back in 2002.
Diablo III (sales down 50%), Splinter Cell: Blacklist (sales down 16%), Disney Infinity (sales down 22%), Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (sales down 9%) and Payday 2 (sales down 33%) are all non-movers from No. 3 down to No. 7, but LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (sales up 5%) shifts up to No. 8 from No. 13.
LEGO Lord of the Rings (sales down 5%) is meanwhile up three places to No. 9, while Rome: Total War II (sales down 87%) tumbles down to No. 10 from No. 2. Just outside of the Top Ten is debut title NHL 14, which Chart Track says is the fourth best week one sales debut for EA’s ice hockey franchise. Further down, however, we see Puppeteer which makes an unfortunate debut at No. 40.
