Hard as it is to believe, 505 Games’ PayDay 2 has debuted at the top spot in the UK according to the latest UKIE Game Charts courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track. Given that it became profitable a week before release and is actually quite a fun game (check out our review here) it does make sense though.
The heist-centered, cooperative first person shooter managed to nudge off Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, which has been dominating the charts for a good few weeks now. Interestingly enough, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 rose up to third place, perhaps ahead of the release for Call of Duty: Ghosts (whose multiplayer reveal came just recently).
FIFA 13 is also in the top 5 at fourth place ahead of FIFA 14’s release, with Animal Crossing: New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS at fifth place. The Last of Us is at number 6, with The Smurfs 2, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto IV (also making a reappearance) making up the rest of the top 10.
