Racing around the corner

Legendary Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac Games has suffered an intolerable introduction to the world of multiplatform games, with its uninspiring third-person shooter Fuse entering the UK sales charts at a dreadful 37th. Ted Price, the head of the Burbank-based studio, recently noted that the company is planning more entries in the series. Will this make it change its mind?

Fortunately, it wasn’t all bad news, as Codemasters’ racer GRID 2 got off to a great start. The long awaited sequel accelerated straight to the summit, and was closely shadowed by FIFA 13, Dead Island: Riptide, and Far Cry 3. Elsewhere, last week’s frontrunner Resident Evil: Revelations dropped into fifth, while familiar favourites Assassin’s Creed III, Metro: Last Light, and Tomb Raider rounded out the list.
