Minecraft trounces Kirby in the UK Games Charts

Will there ever come a time when more kids recognise Creepers than Mario or Kirby?

I'm deadly serious, since Minecraft's universal appeal shows no signs of stopping. Despite being available on PSN for some time, the PS3 version has now released on Blu-Ray... straight into third place in the UK charts. Again, considering that Mojang's legendary sandbox has already been selling like hot cakes for ages, this is seriously impressive. The next-gen version is slated for Q2/Q3 if you're interested.

Meanwhile Kirby Triple Deluxe quietly shuffles into sixteen place. Nintendo once again didn't deign us worthy of review code, but if I pick it up I'll scribble something down. Otherwise expect football and Titans and blah in the official top ten below.

UK Charts: Week Ending 17th May, 2014 (previous chart position in parentheses, links to reviews where appropriate)

  1. FIFA 14 (2)
  2. Titanfall (1)
  3. Minecraft: PS3 Edition (new)

  5. FIFA World Cup Brazil (5)
  6. Call Of Duty: Ghosts (6)

  8. The LEGO Movie Videogame (7)
  9. Battlefield 4 (8)
  10. Grand Theft Auto V (13)

Why do 'Minecraft PS3 Edition' and 'Minecraft XBox 360 Edition' take up two places in the charts, while every other game combines all formats to reach its total? Such things keep me awake at night
