Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite help UK boxed sales jump in March
Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite were the best-selling boxed games across the UK in March, and helped physical sales in Britain jump over previous months.
The stats come courtesy of Gfk Chart Track and were reported on by MCV.
March trumped physical sales in January and February, amassing some 2.67m units sold, although the number was 1.5% less than the March 2012 total.
But interestingly enough, boxed sales in March generated £70.6 million in revenue for games retail, which is a rise of 4.2% over March 2012′s total of £67.7 million. So while less copies were sold, the market made more money.
Here’s the top ten boxed sales chart for March 2013:
- Tomb Raider
- BioShock Infinite
- Gears of War: Judgment
- FIFA 13
- Crysis 3
- God of War: Ascension
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
- Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2
