The Return Of The Duke


14 years after it was originally announced, ‘Duke Nukem Forever’ finally makes its long awaited appearance in the All Formats Chart, debuting at No1 and knocking fellow Take 2 top seller ‘L.A. Noire’ (-54%) down to No2 in the process. Xbox 360 is the main Duke Nukem Forever format with a 56% share, ahead of PS3 with 30% and PC 14%

A healthy looking ‘Zumba Fitness’ (-2%) manages to keep Sony’s PS3-exclusive newcomer ‘Infamous 2’ out of the Top 3, climbing one place to No3 with ‘Infamous 2’ having to settle for No4 – one place higher than the original which launched at No5 two years ago.  ‘Lego Pirates of the Caribbean’ (-38%) starts to walk the plank, down 3 places to No5, ahead of Codemasters’ ‘Dirt 3’ (-37%) which also falls 3 places, down to No6.  Sales of ‘Brink’ only drop 1% this week, but it still falls two places to No7, making way for the new releases ahead of it. 

There is one other new entry this week – THQ’s ‘Red Faction: Armageddon’ at No8, sales of which are predominantly on Xbox 360 (70%) with PS3 only accounting for 26% and PC 4%.  Making up the remainder of the Top 10 are previous No1’s from Activision (Black Ops at No9) and EA (Portal 2 at No10, overtaking FIFA 11 as EA’s top selling game this week).
