UK games chart: Ghost Recon: Future Solider gives Max Payne 3 a beating
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Solider is this week’s most popular game in the UK. The tactical military shooter debuted at number one to snatch the top spot from Max Mayne 3, beating off some top, top games. Read on to see how even more of the newest releases fared.
The instant success of Ghost Recon: Future Solider gives developer Ubisoft something to cheer about as it enjoys the best first week sales of any previous game in the Ghost recon series.
And that means Max Payne 3 is in second place ahead of two other new releases from last week: Capcom’s fantasy-world-based Dragon’s Dogma and new Codemaster’s driving game DiRT: Showdown.
We’ve been playing a lot of DiRT: Showdown. The arcade racer features racing modes, a stunt school mode and multiplayer competitive car destruction. Whether you’re a serious racing fan or enjoy playing for fun, DiRT Showdown is a lot of fun. Watch out for a full review very soon.
Other notable chart developments sees fastest-selling PC game of all time Diablo 3 drop from two down to nine in the charts. The next week is a little more quiet on the release front, as the industry gears up for E3 2012, but we should see more action soon, with the likes of Lollipop Chainsaw and Spec Ops: The Line launching in the middle of June.
