Sega’s ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ (360/PS3/PC) debuts at No1 as the biggest new release of the year so far and is the second highest week 1 for an Alien franchise game, behind Sega’s own ‘Aliens vs Predator’ launched back in week 7, 2010 also on 360/PS3/PC.

Sega’s Aliens vs Predator’ is the highest grossing Aliens title at around £14m lifetime in the UK – previous best in this franchise is Acclaim’s ‘Alien Trilogy’ from 1996 (£10m) which was a massive PS1 seller, but was also released on Sega’s Saturn and on PC. EA’s ‘Dead Space 3’ drops to No2 (-57%) and EA’s ‘FIFA 13’ drops one place to No3 (+39%) although sales increase 39% over last week, a phenomenon that affects many top-selling titles this week with the start of half term holidays boosting sales.

Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ climbs 6 places to No6 (+50%) thanks to half term and some price promotion, whilst last week’s No6, Namco Bandai’s ‘Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch’ drops down to No25 (-59%). Warner re-enter at No29 thanks to ‘Super Scribblenauts’ on DS (+83%) which is currently amazing value at less than £5.

Shit had actually sold out in multiple places. Not that I expected it to have much staying power, but still. Did Ni No Kuni even get any TV ads? Feels like it should have with that Ghibli selling point.

Hardware numbers would look horrific if revealed. Media Create can tackle weekly numbers, but UK would need something much more like NPD to be palatable.

Seeing how DNF topped charts then sunk like a rock under similar circumstances I doubt it. Word of mouth spreads fast and I've already seen a lot of copies in pre-owned sections. It's going to sell decently because of the name and then get a price drop probably but I don't see it staying.

How did that happen so quickly. Jees!

And NiNoKuni should be about the 30k mark in the UK. Not bad at all.

Doubt that they'll actually push hardware units but the latter is going to be bundled in Europe, so we'll see how that goes.

No its right. Its the same as previous weeks. I don't know why it says Live and what difference there is between a card and a voucher. Crazy Norwegians.

I am still surprised that Denmark is so different from other nordics. Ni No Kuni never charted over there :/. Friggin Madden did tho...

I've just realised that the 3DS release of Sonic racing coincided with MK7 disappearing, must be taking some sales off that.

Is there not a single region within Europe where Wii U games at least chart? This is one serious clusterfuck they've got on their hands(2 if you count the 3DS's dire situation in most of Europe). Must be a slow week if Aliens is topping the charts.

What doesn't exist can't chart, hardware sales aren't enough to push the two games that would have a chance (land and nsmbu) since most who already have a system already have these.

Won't see a U title in the charts until a) new exclusive that is big or b) existing game gets a massive price cut.

Week Ending 16 February 2013: £12.8mm on 499,714 units

YTD 2012 £100.7mm on 4.541mm units
YTD 2013 £80.1mm (-21%) on 3.469mm units (-24%)

The YTD revenue figures improved slightly, with the weekly ASP going up close to £26. YTD units decline stayed constant from last week.

Perhaps for discussion:
"Across all consoles there were fewer shoppers last year, but it was Wii which suffered the most as almost half of its consumer base stopped buying new games. When released in 2006 the Wii brought families into the market for the first time. However over the past year spending on games for family use has dropped 60 per cent, a trend which has been caused by the aging Wii and the increasing number of people gaming on tablets and mobiles.

This decline has not translated into a boost for its competitors. Only 40 per cent of previous Wii customers went on to buy a game on another format. Even Xbox with its family-friendly Kinect has only managed to mop up a quarter of those who abandoned the Wii. A huge number have simply dropped out of the market altogether." -- Jules Williams, consumer retail analyst for Kantar Worldpanel

It's the brand that pushes licenced games, not the quality. Most of the people buying it would just see an Aliens game on the shelf and be up on it, they don't know about the schadenfreude.

Guys, there's some justice


‘Crysis 3’ knocks last week’s No1 ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ (-84%) down to No5, debuting ahead of ‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ which begins life at No2. Two new entries at No1 and No2 is a first for 2013, however neither’s launch week can match those of previous No1s ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ or ‘Dead Space 3’. There is a gap of 5,500 sales between the two newcomers with ‘Crysis 3’ benefiting from also being available on PC as well as Xbox 360 and PS3. Xbox 360 is the lead format for ‘Crysis 3’ with 57% of sales, while PS3 is the bigger seller for ‘Metal Gear’ with 61%. Four out of the eight UK All Formats No1 so far this year are represented by 3 different EA titles. ‘FIFA 13’ is still proving popular, a non-mover at No3 with sales up 25% on last week. ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (+0%) is also a non-mover at No4. ‘Dead Space 3’ (-54%) falls 4 places to No6, keeping it ahead of ‘Far Cry 3’ (-21%) at No7 and ‘Need for Speed Most Wanted’ (+13%) at No8. The last two places in the Top 10 are occupied by an Assassin and a Hitman with Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (-5%) at No9 and Square’s ‘Hitman Absolution’ (-2%) at No10.
