Minecraft Strikes Gold

05/Aug/2013

Microsoft’s ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (-9%) holds the No1 spot in the All Formats Chart for a second week.


It’s a quiet week for new releases and so the 4J studios developed title finds itself largely unchallenged at the top. ‘The Last of Us’ (-2%) which held the crown for six weeks prior to Minecraft’s ascent to the top climbs a place to No2 as does Nintendo’s ‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf’ (-0%) to No3. Following a strong week on week boost in sales EA’s ‘FIFA 13’ (+33%) continues to climb back up the chart reaching No4.

Even more impressive is the climb of Ubisoft’s ‘The Smurfs 2’ (+115%) which following its debut two weeks ago flies up the chart to No5 no doubt helped by their second outing on the big screen. Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (+48%) is also back in the Top 10 up from No16 to No7 following a near fifty percent boost in sales. Square Enix’s ‘Tomb Raider’ (+1%) is a non-mover at No9 while ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (+11%) just edges out ‘Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros’ to round off the Top 10 at No10.
