Crysis 3 has become the first major title in weeks to maintain the top spot for a second week in a row on the UK Charts.
2013 has been a crazy year for new game releases. Typically, a new game like DmC: Devil May Cry, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Dead Space 3 and Aliens: Colonial Marines only manage to stay on top for one week before dropping to lower positions or out of the top 20 altogether. No game since Call of Duty: Black Ops II has managed more than one week at top. Finally, Crysis 3 has managed to stay in the top spot.
Crytek and EA’s futuristic first-person shooter debuted last week in the top spot beating out fellow newcomer Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It has maintained that spot thanks in part to no major releases last week. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance did not fare so well falling to third place behind FIFA 13.
The rest of the top 20 is still very similar. Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Far Cry 3 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted continues to battle it out to remain in the top 5. Both Far Cry 3 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted received a bit of a bump from last week.
