UK Charts 2013 – Week 3

23 January, 2013 - 7:54 pm by

dmc_devil_may_cry_captivate_screenshot__10_ DmC was this week’s biggest release and in a market that is still suffering from the post-Christmas blues and it may come as a surprise to some but it has ended FIFA’s reign to hit straight in at the number 1 spot. It marks the first time since 2009 that Capcom have taken top seed, and that was with Resident Evil 5.

While this is good news for Capcom, the reality is that DmC only sold a third of the copies that Devil May Cry 4’s opening week total back in 2008. It will remain to be seen if the new reboot can match the success of the older ones. The only other new entry into the chart is an older game – NBA 2K13. Otherwise it is another stagnent week with little movement within the top 10. The only exception to this is Halo 4 – dropping from 7th to 22nd.
