UK Sales Charts: Dead Island: Riptide Top, Soul Sacrifice Scorches 26th

Posted by Sammy Barker

Not a dreadful start for Sony's niche demon slayer

Despite a slight slump in sales, Dead Island: Riptide maintained its position atop the UK sales charts this week, batting off NetherRealm Studios’ likeable brawler Injustice: Gods Among Us with a big stick. Steady seller Tomb Raider waited around in third, while FIFA 13 dribbled into fourth position. Meanwhile, budget re-release Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen rounded out the top five.

The only new entry this week was PlayStation Vita exclusive Soul Sacrifice, which debuted in 26th position. Honestly, we didn’t expect the title to chart at all, so that’s not a terrible result considering the system’s install base and the style of game. Factor in digital sales and it probably ended up performing reasonably well.

I am happy to see Soul Sacrifice on the chart even if it's only nr. 26.

I think Soul Sacrifice could have sold better, if Sony had brought the Soul Sacrifice bundle to EU and US and cut the price on Memory Card by 20 %.

The problem i see with Soul Sacrifice is that this type of game is a niche in the EU and US. In Japan, games like this sells like hot cakes because the japanese are into stuff like this. If you compare the sale number of US and Japan for Monster hunter, Soul sacrifice, persona, or any game that are similiar to Monster hunter, Its obvious that Japan rule in sales chart. I'm just glad it made onto the chart.
