Yet another depressing line up this week, because Walking dead survival instinct somehow managed 3rd place. 7th isn't bad for monster hunter considering.

7th is bloody awful for Monster Hunter, considering it was essentially on 2 platforms. That being said, I have heard lots of talk about limited availability, perhaps because Nintendo have restricted supplies as they want people to download the game instead? Anecdotal internet evidence suggests people are actually quite happy to pay the extra.

    Yeah not nice to see Monster Hunter that low, Gears doesn't deserve to be number 1.

    Average, MP that will be dead in a month and forgetable at best.

    Considering the two platforms are have much lower install bases in the UK, when compared to the 360 and PS3, which have been out much longer. And considering this is a remastering of a game from a franchise that is only really cult status in Europe, 7th isn't terrible.

    That list is wrong. Here is the correct list http://www.chart-track.co.uk/index.j....jsp&ct=110032

    That list above isn't right at all, God of War: Ascension is debuted at #2 and is now #5. Gears of War: Judgment only reached number 1 because Tomb Raider & GoW:A have been out for over a week and are slowing down, Gears of War: Judgment is still doing horrible compared to past games and won't outsell Tomb Raider or God of War: Ascension lifetime.

    Same week, different stats, different results.

    Surely what matters is how much money the games made for the publisher? That will drive further work on the franchise or format (and Wii U certainly needs some more good software sales to encourage further big third party titles).

    Why the TD? It was a simple, honest mistake.
