UKIE Week 11 2011 UK Video Games Charts

THQ claim No1 on the All Formats chart for the first time since week 22, 2009 (UFC 2009: Undisputed) with a shiny new FPS called ‘HomeFront’ from Kaos Studios (360/PS3/PC). Those with long memories might remember Kaos’ first boxed release ‘Frontlines: Fuel of War’ on 360/PC which debuted at No4 in week 9, 2008. On Xbox 360 ‘HomeFront’ is certainly performing well considering that in week 1 in the UK it manages to sell around 82% of what Frontlines on 360 achieved over 3 years. EA’s ‘Dragon Age II’ drops to No2 (-68%) and Nintendo’s ‘Pokemon White’ also drops one place to No3 (-47%). Sega’s PC ‘Shogun 2: Total War’ by Creative Assembly debuts strongly at No4 and was in fact a Tuesday release in week 11. Such was the demand for this title (if you were a fan of ‘Shogun: Total War’ you have only had to wait 11 years for this sequel) that almost 80% of retail boxed sales were made in the first 24 hours. Also new this week is 2K Sports/Take 2’s ‘Top Spin 4’ on 360/PS3/Wii which debuts at No13, the previous iteration debuted one place higher at No12 back in week 25, 2008. The final new entry this week is Sega’s ‘Yakuza 4’ on PS3, debuting at No25, with previous iteration also debuting one place higher at No24 back in week 10, 2010.
