Aim!

Sniper Elite V2 has topped the sales charts for the last week, pushing Activision’s Prototype 2 down into second place. The 360 version told the most, but that seems fairly common throughout the top 40 listed below.

Mortal Kombat was the sole PS Vita game charting, sadly, down at number 33.

    Reviewed badly but, from what I’ve seen so far, Sniper is a cracking little game and a lot of fun. Even the demo kept me occupied for a couple of hours lol.

    Good to see Sniper Elite is top, I actually didn’t think it would sell that well, but it’s a quiet time of year (gaming wise) and the demo was well received. Hope to pick this up at some point.

        yeah same price in asda,got my copy friday and it was good while it lasted but it has a few things going against it…on the ps3 it does not properly save your game at check points.so if you turn off before finishing the level once the game is loaded again you have to start the level from the start not from the check points, and if you think that is not bad some levels are up to an hour long.Also not having player vs player multi player on the consoles is just stupid.if you like replaying levels once finished the game then you will love it but remember all enemies are in the same place all the time so could get boring fast.also there is a frustration thing in the game where you think a place is clear of enemies and you walk abit to only have them spawn behind you, and kill you.you can accurately see them spawn if you know where to look.

        Wasn’t aware of the PS3 issues so thanks for the heads up :)

        Definitely seems like a rental sort of game but, given you can get a copy for 27quid and most stores will offer you more than that in trade in at the moment, (Blockbusters is about 29quid trade in at the moment), it’s worth buying a cheap copy and giving it a try.

    Interesting to see the breakup of 360 and PS3 game sales – 360 clearly has the edge over here.
    Annoyingly I had to cancel my Sniper V2 pre-order, and also my Ghost Recon one. Just don’t have the money right now.

    Played the demo for this last night, looks like it might hold some promise, could really do with a better cover system though

    Tried to get Sniper Elite V2 on PS3 from my local Game yesterday but they’d sold out :(
    The guy on the counter said they’d not had anywhere near enough copies.

    the Vita has games ready to download so that would be higher if they showed that as well.

    About time MW3 dropped down in charts. Good to see BF3 and GT5 outselling MW3.

    Surprised at Sniper V2 though there has been a shortage in military shooters the last few months.

    Hopefully our review will hit by the end of week!
