UK Games Charts | 28th April 2012

And this week's winner is...Prototype 2. Activision and Radical Entertainment have knocked The Witcher 2 from the top spot with a fine showing on release from their sequel to 2009's mass-murder simulator. Prototype 2 recorded greater launch sales than Kinect Star Wars and The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition, though it should be noted that those two games were platform exclusives (PC sales of the latter counting for less than 2%), but failed to match those of the original game despite a Tuesday global release.

The usual suspects make up the rest of the top five, with CD Projekt RED's critically acclaimed RPG slipping to 6th.

  1. Prototype 2 (-)
  2. FIFA Street (2)
  3. FIFA 12 (3)
  4. Mass Effect 3 (5)
  5. Kinect Star Wars (4)
  6. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Enhanced Edition (1)
  7. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 (6)
  8. Battlefield 3 (7)
  9. Mario & Sonic: London 2012 Olympics (9)
  10. Saints Row: The Third (12)

Worth mentioning in defence of the PC, if you owned Witcher 2 you can get the Enhanced Edition for free. Seeing low sales figures for this is to be expected then.

Nice to see MW3 missing from the top 10 and BF3 still holding on, that feels like how it should be.
