UK Games Charts: 10/09/12

Sleeping Dogs back on top, Guild Wars falling.

Square’s love affair with Hong Kong cinema returns to the top spot this week, despite a significant drop in sales of 42 per cent. It beats out EA’s Sims standalone expansion, Supernatural. That expansion is the only new release to make an appearance and, with Guild Wars 2 slipping to sixth, everything else in the top five is in the same position as last week.

Madden is selling well for a niche sports game (in the UK, at least) and holding on well at number seven. That’s ahead of the resurgent GotY edition of Dead Island and Activision’s evergreen Modern Warfare 3.

Here’s the top 20:

  1. SLEEPING DOGS – SQUARE ENIX EUROPE
  2. THE SIMS 3: SUPERNATURAL – ELECTRONIC ARTS
  3. NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. 2 – NINTENDO
  4. LONDON 2012: THE OFFICIAL VIDEO GAME – SEGA
  5. LEGO BATMAN 2: DC SUPER HEROES – WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE
  6. GUILD WARS 2 – NCSOFT EUROPE
  7. MADDEN NFL 13 – ELECTRONIC ARTS
  8. DEAD ISLAND GOTY EDITION – KOCH MEDIA
  9. DARKSIDERS II – THQ
  10. CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 3 – ACTIVISION BLIZZARD
  11. MARIO & SONIC LONDON 2012 OLYMPIC GAMES – SEGA
  12. LEGO HARRY POTTER: YEARS 5-7 – WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE
  13. TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON: FUTURE SOLDIER – UBISOFT
  14. TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON – ACTIVISION BLIZZARD
  15. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN – ACTIVISION BLIZZARD
  16. BATTLEFIELD 3 – ELECTRONIC ARTS
  17. SNIPER ELITE V2 – 505 GAMES / MASTERTRONIC
  18. FIFA 12 – ELECTRONIC ARTS
  19. BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY – WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE
  20. THE ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM – BETHESDA SOFTWORKS

    Darksiders 2 is plummeting I see :( Shame as its a pretty awesome game. Glad to see Sleeping Dogs returning to top spot however. Easily the best open world game on the market.

      My limited edition copy was only £34 on release day, so I doubt it’ll be anywhere near £40….unless you deal with less than scrupulous spivs :O
