Latest Uk Charts - w/e Sept 1 - Guild Wars 2 fights its way to the top


NCsoft's hotly anticipated MMO Guild Wars 2 has hit Sleeping Dogs into the second spot in this weeks all format charts.

The game was released last Tuesday and has immediately became the second largest launch ever for a non-Warcraft MMO PC title, behind Star Wars: The Old Republic. Guild Wars 2 is also the first PC-only release to reach No1 in the All Formats Chart since Football Manager 2011 back in November 2010.

Elsewhere in this weeks charts, New Super Mario sticks in third spot, while London 2012, LEGO Batman 2 and Darksiders II all remain in the top six. New release Madden 13 arrives in seventh spot, while Transformers, Ghost Recon and Modern Warfare 3 make up the top ten.

We have arrived in September now, and although the month does start off quietly in terms of new releases, once they start to arrive, we'll be pretty much inundated until around Xmas time. It's all about to kick off, are you ready?

14th place though is very good for the Tales Of series. Considering how niche it is.

Been playing GW2 since the 3 day head start and loving it, there are some bugs and problems with the game but Arena net are working hard on the issues and it has improved already since head start, but stuff like trading post, pvp, dungeons and such are still having slight problems. Other than that the game is amazing

Sleeping Dogs beat Darksiders 2 on launch week and this week! Wow, it must be doing well, good to see, as I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hong Kong was a vibrant paradise.

Didn't expect Sleeping Dogs to do so well, Tales of Graces F... I hope the sales are enough for Namco Bandai to bring Tales of Xillia over here.

Guildwars 2 is a must own. I believe that this game can be categorised as the best mmo currently on the market. No extra costs other then the game purchase and it is worth every penny. The game will surley provide gamers with many hours of excellent gameplay, fantastic online features and much more.

I'm glad Tales is on the list but I'm a bit disappointed Agarest Generations of War 2 isn't on it :(

No surprise really, it was bound to become #1 as it's a PC mmo, up their with WOW. I'm glad the likes of Sleeping Dogs and Darksiders 2 are doing well though, means we could see further games in the series.
