UK Sales Charts: Some Dude in a Gaudy Green Suit Tops

Posted by Sammy Barker

Your guess is as good as ours

We’ve never heard of this week’s best selling game in the UK. Apparently it involves a character named Master Chief – yeah, we thought that was kind of dumb too. Still, it seems like the people of Britain are rather fond of him. Something they’re not so keen on is LittleBigPlanet Karting, which has crashed its way into a disappointing 24th position. We suppose it’s hardly surprising, given the complete lack of interest Sony has shown in the project leading up to launch.

Elsewhere, last week’s frontrunner Assassin’s Creed III slipped slightly into second, while the evergreen FIFA 13 held onto third. Meanwhile, Skylanders Giants charged into sixth, as WWE ’13 loosened its grip into seventh. Feel free to peruse the full list of best-sellers through here.

Doesn't Halo 4 just look great though? I mean, I'm a bit of a Sony fanboy at heart, and hate the 360 controller, but it does, it really does.

LBPK is as uninteresting as a blank sheet of paper. It's had some pretty humdrum reviews too- not enough LBP and not enough Mod Nation happening for any excitement. Also, with F1 Race Stars (demo plays OK) and the much nicer looking Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed on the way, I think Sackboy's at the back of the carting pack.

I kinda forgot all about LBPK. I may pick it up one day though. Playing a lot of WWE 13 on 360. Huge improvement over 12.

Well deserved for Halo 4, been playing the game and loving it. Glad to see AC 3's sales have remained strong as well.

LBP Karting's performance is a combination of things. I haven't played it but from what I've heard it's an average game at best. On top of that, Sony sent it out at the same time as Halo 4 was released with little to no advertising, at least here in the U.S. If the situation was pretty much the same over in the UK, that's just stupid on the company's part. At least pretend to care how it does.
