Survival horror game The Last Of Us has held on to the top spot in the UK video games chart for a fifth consecutive week while Animal Crossing has slipped back into second place just ahead of new entry, 3DS titles Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros. FIFA 13 is proving incredibly stubborn while Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has slipped to fifth place.
1 (1) – The Last Of Us has been in the number one position for some five weeks now; an effort made even more impressive by the fact that it is a PS3 exclusive so doesn’t have Xbox 360 sales to bolster its sales figures. It looks great, has masses of character, and is a definite must own for PS4 gamers. Expect it to be at or near the top next week as well.
2 (4) – Animal Crossing: New Leaf had slipped to fourth position last week but is back up in second place, where it debuted. The 3DS title has helped to reignite sales in the handheld console and looks like it may have benefited from the release of another 3DS title this week and the inevitable line of gamers that queued up in order to purchase the latest Mario title.
3 (-) – The week’s highest entry is Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros for the 3DS. This is a more RPG oriented Mario title which may sound somewhat counter intuitive but, as with any Mario release, you can expect numerous hours of light hearted fun, replayability, and amusing entertainment that is suitable for the family regardless of age and gaming experience.
4 (3) – It really won’t go away. FIFA 13 has been hovering around the third and fourth position seemingly forever and it seems increasingly likely that the only way it will be displaced from the top five is when the next instalment is released. The game is pretty much exactly what you would expect from the latest generation of FIFA football games.
5 (2) – Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is the retail version of one of the most popular downloadable games of all time. If it weren’t for the fact that millions of copies had already sold via Xbox Live then we think that world building game Minecraft would have featured a lot higher in the charts and for a lot longer. Fifth place really isn’t too unrespectable under the circumstances and it will probably be there or thereabouts again next week too.
