UK charts: Dead Island Riptide stays afloat at number one

Tuesday, 7 May 2013 09:41 GMT By Dave Cook

Dead Island: Riptide has held firm at the top of the UK game top 40 for a second week running. Techland’s zombie-basher might feel like an expansion to the original, but that’s not stopping the nation from getting stuck in.

Although it’s at the top, Dead Island: Riptide saw a 32% sales slump this week, while this week’s second place Injustice: Gods Among Us fell by 40%. This week’s only new entry Soul Sacrifice entered at 26, marking another slow starter for Sony’s PS Vita.
