UK charts: FIFA Streets keeps it up top for second week

Monday, 26th March 2012 09:21 GMT By Johnny Cullen

FIFA Street has remained at the top of the UK charts for the second week in a row, holding off Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City from the number one spot.

The Slant Six action spin-off, despite getting a massive kicking in reviews and not being stocked at troubled GAME, launches in second place this week.

The remainder of the top five consists of other EA titles Mass Effect 3, FIFA 12 and SSX.

Kid Icarus: Uprising debuts well at seven, but other new entry Ninja Gaiden 3 just makes it inside the top 20 at 19.

Codemasters F1 2011 gets a boost into the top ten, no doubt thanks to a sales boost following the opening two races of the 2012 season in Australia last weekend and Malaysia yesterday.

Top ten for the week ending March 24 is below. Last week’s data is here.

  • 1 – FIFA Street
  • 2 – Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
  • 3 – Mass Effect 3
  • 4 – FIFA 12
  • 5 – SSX
  • 6 – Modern Warfare 3
  • 7 – Kid Icarus: Uprising
  • 8 – Battlefield 3
  • 9 – F1 2011
  • 10 – Mario and Sonic at the London Olympics

    Wow. Resident Evil ORC at number 2… Shows you how much people care about quality these days. RE name!? SOLD!

    I’m not a 3DS fan but when crap like RE ORC outsells an actually decent game like Kid Icarus Uprising, what does it say about our industry? Our consumers? And people say moviegoers have bad tastes that cause Transformers and Twilight sell millions…

    @1 This would be proven true if Ninja Gaiden 3 was in the top 10 too, given its massive marketing campaign and the better scores received.

    Too bad the game isn’t in this chart, so this shows that people are actually liking the game and your point is invalid.

    Disclaimer: I don’t have neither of the two games yet, so I can’t and won’t discuss their objective qualities further.

    @2 Ninja Gaiden games have never been super big sellers like RE. Still, I get your point about people like ORC.
