UK Charts – Week 34

28 August, 2012 - 11:06 am by

The last bank holiday until Christmas has come and gone. With a shorter working week for many (and including those lucky people at UKIE), the UK video game charts for the week ending 26th are finally here. This week’s releases included THQ hotly anticipated follow up Darksiders II and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. But the question on everybody’s lips are, where did they chart? Well, read on and find out…

Well, despite a strong performance from the Grim Reaper, Square Enix and Sleeping Dogs still managed to remain at the top of the class. Darksiders II may have come in second but response to the game was staggering, outselling the originals debut by over 80%. New Super Mario Bros has been bumped down to third. London 2012 is still hanging on in fourth place – the lowest place since it was released some 8 weeks ago. Transformers manages to squeeze into the top five and is the only other new entry this week.
