Second Week For Saints Row


Of the top three new entries last week at No’s 1,2 & 3, the Top 2 remain stationary, with Deep Silver/Koch’s ‘Saints Row IV’ (-44%) at No1.

This is followed at No2 by Ubisoft’s ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ (-37%) while last week’s No3 ‘Disney Infinity’ drops to No4 (-16%). There are 5 new entries this week within the Top 40, the highest of which debuts at No3 and is Square Enix’s revamped ‘Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’ for PS3/PC – note that ‘Final Fantasy XIV’ originally launched in September 2010 on PC only, debuting at No10 in week 38/10.

Ubisoft debut at No6 with ‘Rayman Legends’ which is the direct successor to 2011’s ‘Rayman Origins’ – good news for Ubisoft is that ‘Legends’ outsold ‘Origins’ week 1 by around 20%. Right behind at No7 is EA’s ‘Madden NFL 25’ for 360/PS3 – last year’s version ‘Madden NFL 13’ also debuted at No7 exactly 1 year ago for 360/PS3, although in terms of sales, ‘NFL 13’ holds the week 1 record. Capcom debut at No26 with ‘Lost Planet 3’ and Deep Silver/Koch come in at No28 with ‘Killer is Dead’, developed by GrassHopper Manufacture who were most recently seen in the charts with ‘Lollipop Chainsaw’ (wk24/12). ‘Killer is Dead’ continues the assassins themes explored in cult classics ‘Killer 7’ (PS2/Gamecube in 2005) and ‘No More Heroes’ (Wii in 2008).
