UK Game Charts – Prototype 2 Hits Top

I think they should have called Prototype 2 “Production Run” but I guess it would only have been a handful of people who got the joke and most of them would only have chuckled lightly and moved on. That’s why I’m not earning the big bucks in games marketing.

The good news, for Activision, is that their blood thirsty superhero game is the top seller this week. It got a little boost by coming out on a Tuesday when everything else had the good manners to wait until Friday but it still earned its top spot admirably, scooping up enough sales to beat EA’s two FIFA titles to the post.

Don’t worry though, EA fans, that publisher still has a strong presence in the chart with three of the top five.

Here’s the full top twenty:

[PROTOTYPE 2] – ACTIVISION BLIZZARD
FIFA STREET – ELECTRONIC ARTS
FIFA 12 – ELECTRONIC ARTS
MASS EFFECT 3 – ELECTRONIC ARTS
KINECT STAR WARS – MICROSOFT
THE WITCHER 2: ASSASSINS – ENHANCED ED. – NAMCO BANDAI GAMES
TIGER WOODS PGA TOUR 13 – ELECTRONIC ARTS
BATTLEFIELD 3 – ELECTRONIC ARTS
MARIO & SONIC LONDON 2012 OLYMPIC GAMES – SEGA
SAINTS ROW: THE THIRD – THQ
BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY – WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE
SKYLANDERS: SPYRO’S ADVENTURE – ACTIVISION BLIZZARD
THE ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM – BETHESDA SOFTWORKS
CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 3 – ACTIVISION BLIZZARD
SSX – ELECTRONIC ARTS
MOSHI MONSTERS: MOSHLING ZOO – MIND CANDY
UFC UNDISPUTED 3 – THQ
JUST DANCE 3 – UBISOFT
UNCHARTED 3: DRAKE’S DECEPTION – SONY COMPUTER ENT.
F1 2011 – CODEMASTERS

And for those of you who think there are too many proper games in that list, just have a think about what could be at number 21. Yep, it’s Zumba, still at 21 in the games chart.

  1. “EA Fans” – LOL
    Fifa fans maybe but I don’t think EA has any fans left

    • I.. oh wait no.

    • ha ha, agreed there.

    • To be fair, i don’t mind ’em – Wouldn’t go as far as saying i was a fan though.

      • Same here, there no worse then any other publisher imo.

  2. Are these charts weekly and are they just for this week (same as music singles charts)?
    If so, that’s incredible that Skyrim is still 13th after 5 months! Well deserved.

  3. How on Nirn is Skyrim still charting?

    Impressive.

  4. Just read that Prototype 2 sold less than Prototype which was up against inFamous which could have taken sales away on one platform.

    Wonder how much longer pubs will take these diminishing returns in console game before giving up & focusing on less expensive platforms to develop for & conceding thats beyond CoD, FIFA, Madden & couple of others the diminishing returns are just not worth the risk.

    Anyway, happy Monday console gamers

    • They need to be cheaper in the UK, they’d eventually fall in price anyway.

      • Cheaper in the UK? You guys already have the cheapest game prices in all of Europe.

      • yeah but stuff like Yakuza or Armoured Core hardly sell since they choose to go for the £39.99 tag normally seen across stores.

        Anything that isn’t a FPS or a huge frachise is dead on arrival.

      • Well prices online anyway drop fast. I got Yakuza dead Souls last week from zavvi for £14.95 (my price point). But now even at £20 it’s cheap.

        I hear rest of europe has to pay RRP :(

  5. Wow Battlefield 3 has been consistently beating MW3 the last few weeks. Are people finally getting sick of COD?

    • I guess so plus PC gamers would be buying it, far as I know MW3 is poor on that platform.

    • Hasn’t everyone already bought COD who wants it?

      • That’s what I was thinking. Perhaps people bought COD and now want to give BF3 a go. Price drops and supermarket deals are likely boosting sales though.

      • Equally though, you could argue the same for BF3.

  6. Is there going be a prototype 2 review I want get this game when I get back to the uk

  7. Good ol Prototype. Haven’t played part2 yet but I thoroughly enjoyed the original (just not as much as Infamous)

    • ‘s pretty good – More of the same, just slightly prettier.

      Story is nice too though (what i have seen thus far at least).

  8. Ehh, depressing.

  9. I wonder when the witcher 2 will be out on the PS3. That would at least give me something to eat the summer up with

    • Is it definitely confirmed then? I thought it was still more of an ‘if’ than a ‘when’ tbh.
