UK Games Charts: 15/04/13 – Defiance Stays Up, Infinite Holds On

BioShock Infinite is holding firm at the top of the UK games charts. It remains at the top for a third week running, keeping Tomb Raider in second place. The ever-present FIFA moves up to number three ahead of last week’s most notable new release, Defiance.

There’s not much more to say about Infinite that we (and everyone else) hasn’t already said but I will say that I’ve been very impressed at how well the game lingered in my thoughts after I finished it. Part of that might just be the fact that everyone is talking about it so much but I think it’s also due to that ending (no spoilers, please).

Defiance drops to number four, we’ve got a review of that in the works but early critical response has been mixed. Console versions, in particular, have been called rushed to the point of being broken but the PC version seems quite interesting and the way it all ties in to a brand new original Syfy TV show will make for an interesting experiment in that transmedia guff that publishers are so keen on.

  1. Skyrim’s back! And at number 14?! Who’s buying this game?!

  2. Tomb Raider still at number two? They’re having a pretty good run. It still baffles me how SE managed to fuck up their sales projections…

  3. I was going to get another copy of Bioshock infinite but unfortunately they were out of comSTOCK.

    • Bet that came as a bioSHOCK. Personally when it comes to games I always like to BOOKer in advance.

      • Or you can VIGORously search for a copy elsewhere!

      • balls I pressed post before I realized my comment was out of the trend!

    • If you don’t stop with these bioshockingly bad puns. I will tear you apart.

  4. You SIRen, are quite HANDYman at turning a phrase.

    • Damn, I’m laughing at OK screwing up for me to realise I screwed up mine too. Was meant as a reply.

  5. Played 13 of those, pretty decent haul! Tomb Raider being the pick of the bunch by a long way so I’m especially happy to see it performing well in the charts. Hoping to get Luigi’s Mansion 2 at some point.
