Bioshock Infinite takes number one

Tomb Raider still selling well, though

Bioshock Infinite has gone straight to the top of the all-format UK chart (as compiled by Chart Track).

It’s the second biggest debut game of 2013, second only to Tomb Raider. However, Infinite did manage to take the accolade of the best ever week one sales for a Bioshock game, beating out Bioshock 2 by some 9,000 units.

Tomb Raider easily held the number two position, having a price promotion week which boosted sales by 45 per cent.

Gears of War: Judgment fell from the top spot to number three, and it was followed by EA’s continued strong seller FIFA 13.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 on the 3DS was a new entry at number five, and another new entry followed that, namely Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. We remember the first Army of Two way back when, and we weren’t a massive fan in all honesty, so we aren’t surprised to see a rather muted debut here.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is at number seven, with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 being another new entry, but only managing number eight.

Assassin’s Creed 3 held number nine, with Crysis 3 at number ten.

Lego City Undercover, a Wii U exclusive, proved what we’ve been hearing so far about Ninty’s new console – that it really isn’t selling very well, as the game only managed number twelve. That’s really not good for a Lego franchise offering, even on single format.
