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.
