UK Charts 2012 – Week 8

27 February, 2012 - 8:37 pm by

Another week has passed and another joyous Monday has arrived. Alongside the happiness of Monday is this weeks gaming charts, which shows the true power that a new console can possess. Football is a powerful thing in this country, too powerful many would argue, but it would appear that regardless how much advertising EA throw at FIFA, a new console will always overtake the FA and EA.

Yes, the PlayStation’s Vita has managed to secure the top spot this week, with Uncharted: Golden Abyss taking the top spot and stealing the place from FIFA and pushing UFC down to number 3 in the charts. The surprise of the charts below, is Rayman! The recent advertising that Ubisoft have thrown to this title must be doing it some good as it’s moved from number 34 all the way up to 5, which is pretty incredible considering how long it’s been out for now.
