UK Software Charts: Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition Still on Top, Pikmin 3 Falls
Pikmin 3 falls from 2nd to 15th place within a week in the UK.
Mojang’s Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, produced by Mojang, is still reigning supreme in the UK according to the latest UKIE Game Charts courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track. A port of the hit PC indie title, the Xbox 360 version managed to knock Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us off the top which had been enjoying a six week reign up till that point.
However, while The Last of Us managed to get back to the second position, Nintendo’s Pikmin 3 collapsed miserably to 15th place within a week. Considering the title’s drop in Japan as well, this certainly isn’t the best sign of things to come. Regardless, Nintendo is still seeing a measure of success with Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the 3DS at third place. After being at fifth place last week, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. fell to 11th place this week.
FIFA 13 somehow managed to inch its way back up to fourth place, with the godawful Smurfs 2 game at fifth place. The usual suspects make up the remainder of the top 10, which includes Far Cry 3, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Tomb Raider and Assassin’s Creed III.
