UK Games Charts | 8th June 2013

This week's biggest new release, Remember Me, clocks in at an admirable third place behind the victorious GRID 2 and FIFA 13. It's a strong showing for the new IP, which was originally own as Adrift before being picked up by Capcom. Skyrim is also refusing to surrender thanks to the release of the DLC-loaded Legendary Edition, clocking in at a solid fourth.

Elsewhere, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon rejoins usual suspects like Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and and Tomb Raider. Punters also still seem to be buying Dead Island Riptide, which is odd considering that it's intensely, thunderously mediocre. Xbox 360 owners will be much better off with the cheaper State Of Decay. We expect that The Last Of Us might possibly feature into next week's chart after its UK launch on Friday.

Poor old Fuse, which made its debut last week, has already plummeted off the top 40 into an uncharted (no, not with a capital 'U') position. It's a sad state of affairs for the artist formerly known as Overstrike, which caused controversy for muting its colourful tone in line with focus testing.
