UK Games Charts: 10/09/12

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.

  1. I have the 10 games listed in the Charts but been desperately trying to get Sleeping Dogs. Its still out of Stock in ASDA
    Boo! Will try elsewhere tomorrow

    • Not sure if you have one nearby but my local Blockbusters were selling copies for £25 this weekend.

      • Blockbuster shut-down last year =(

      • ShopTo has limited edition in stock for £32.86.

  2. Top Dog….Woof! ;)

  3. 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.

  4. Is sleeping dogs that good? What’s the cheapest I can get it for anyone got sweet deals for me, I refuse to pay £40 for a any game apart from God of war

    • You refuse to buy Sleeping Dogs at £40 that game is still new/fresh 0_e
      Well…. LTG Davey says Blockbuster at £25

    • 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

    • Ah we have no face to face blockbusters as far as am concerned thought they went burst

    • £35 in Argos, £25(i’m not 100% sure if it is excalty £25) in Gamestation. May be preowned only, the barstewards. Amazon may have it for £20.
