Halo 4 Tops UK Charts, Becomes 18th Biggest Launch In History

halo-4

Halo 4, as expected, topped the UK game sales chart last week, but the full story isn’t told by its position. Master Chief’s latest battle came in just under Assassin’s Creed 3′s overall sales last week, and is now the UK’s 18th biggest launch.

The game underperformed, however, as it sold less than Halo 3 – now the 15th biggest launch in UK history, or even Halo: Reach – UK’s 12th biggest launch, ever.

Assassin’s Creed 3 held on to 2nd, while FIFA 13 dropped one spot to 3rd.

Here’s the full list:

1. HALO 4
2. ASSASSIN’S CREED III
3. FIFA 13
4. NEED FOR SPEED MOST WANTED
5. FOOTBALL MANAGER 2013
6. SKYLANDERS GIANTS
7. WWE ’13
8. BORDERLANDS 2
9. JUST DANCE 4
10. MEDAL OF HONOR: WARFIGHTER
11. FORZA HORIZON
12. MOSHI MONSTERS: MOSHLINGS THEME PARK
13. RESIDENT EVIL 6
14. DISHONORED
15. THE ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM
16. PROFESSOR LAYTON AND THE MIRACLE MASK
17. F1 2012
18. NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. 2
19. FORZA MOTORSPORT 4
20. LEGO BATMAN 2: DC SUPER HEROES

    interesting to note that LBP karting only managed to hit 24th!!
    Interesting article though Ernice. Just out of interest, do you have the list of the biggest game launch titles that you quote here?

    Hey bro, yeah – sad LBP Karting performed so poorly. But who releases a new IP in the midst of Halo 4, Assassin’s Creed 3 and Black Ops 2? Sony’s just crazy.

    I’m not sure they have a aggregated segment for the UK’s biggest games in one place. I’ll check.
