Latest UK Charts, w/e Jan 20: Devil May Cry takes top spot



Devil May Cry has managed what seemed impossible, it's only gone and knocked FIFA 13 off the top spot in this week's charts.

Capcom and Ninja Theory's slash em' up has proven a popular release, which will no doubt please publisher and developer alike.

Elsewhere, Far Cry 3 has dropped from second to fourth, while Hitman: Absolution falls four places to eighth. Interestingly Halo 4 is nowhere to be seen.

Here is the full top 20

1. DmC: Devil May Cry
2. FIFA 13
3. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
4. Far Cry 3
5. Need for Speed: Most Wanted
6. Just Dance 4
7. Football Manager 2013
8. Hitman: Absolution
9. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
10. Assassin's Creed 3
11. LEGO The Lord of the Rings
12. WWE 13
13. Dishonored
14. Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed
15. Skylanders Giants
16. Forza Motorsport 4
17. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
18. Medal of Honor: Warfighter
19. NBA 2K13
20. Borderlands 2

With so few new releases at the moment DmC came out at an ideal time to get gamers' attentions. Has anyone tried it yet? It's also nice to see Sonic All-Stars hanging in the top twenty. Such an underated game of last year.

Yeah that's a good point, it really snuck in there! Would have been interesting to see how it would have held up back in October/November time

It'd probably be behind the likes of COD, FIFA and Far Cry 3, yes, but it's a brilliant game in its own right. I've completed the main story, I'm just playing some of my backlog before going back to attempt the further difficulties. It'd be a nice game to 100%, you'd definantely feel satisfied after doing so.

I wasn't berating how good the game is because i've heard naught but how good it is, merely pointing out the ingenuity of the team releasing it now.

It IS really surprising that Halo 4 dropped off the radar, kinda proves the point that i've heard from a lot of people about it - it was a good game but for a Halo game it's longevity is nonexistant, people played Halo 3/Reach for years regularly but not in this case. I mean even games like Forza 4 are keeping in and that's gone through nearly as many iterations (no Horizon there either interestingly)

Good to see a new game break up the top, Not surprised Halo isn't up there though. I loved all the other Halo games but there is just something not right with this one. Haven't played it in a very long time.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
Agreed, personally o hated the MP in Halo 4, there was just way too many power weapons.

Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
The problem with the Halo 4 MP is the Boltshot and that everyone can start of with the DMR AKA mini Sniper
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
LFC Bywater's avatar
Yeh the boltshot is a pain in the ass. reminds me of the mauler from Halo 3 i think it was. DMR is way too powerful

Read on Neogaf that it sold only a third of what DMC4 sold back when it came out. Time to hand the series back to a good developer then, I think.
LFC Bywater's avatar
It has done well enough to land top of the chart, and i've only heard great things from it, which is more i can say about 4.

Isn't there some confusion over whether it sold a third of DMC4's numbers or actually sold a third MORE than DMC4 did right now? Also, Ninja Theory are a good developer, all the problems people seemingly have with DmC can be laid squarely at Capcom's door, not NT's.

I'm guessing you have not even tried the demo? either that or your pretty slow, and DMC 4 was the weak link of the series. The reboot was needed as much as I loved the previous ones their mechanic would feel very outdated if they were released today. Your one of those Dante's hair changed guys aren't you?

First number one for Capcom since Resi 5. Guess they're lucky there's no competition for the top spot this month. Also still no Wii U I notice, and current estimates are suggesting it'll be lucky to sell 10k consoles for the entire month of January. DOA console and no mistake.

At long last!!! Someone has broken the EA and Activision Monopoly. Looking forward to playing Devil May Cry (thankfully its probably going to come before the Friday payday after winning the compo :)) with all the good reviews. I hope if it is as good as made out, it will return Capcom to there former riches. Now for a DECENT Resident Evil 7
MrHighway's avatar
Think you'll b waiting awhile for a decent Resi if you're waiting on a return to it's roots :P

The port of Revelations will provide a decent Re for console owners.

Aww no Anarchy Reigns :( guess it was a bit optimistic to think it would be up there
PrometheusFan's avatar
It did pretty well even charting last week I thought. A game like that was always going to be a hard sell in Western markets, even at a budget release price. Shame though that it's likely to be the last Sega game we see on shelves for quite some time.

disappointed to see Halo disappear already, originally it felt like a solid game but the longevity just wasn't there for everybody

Yes, Halo 4 is a disappointment you would expect to see it in there plus where are the 3DS games such as Paper Mario? I suppose all the 3DS games were bought over Christmas!
PrometheusFan's avatar
Nope, 3DS games just aren't selling very well anywhere but Japan.

What a crap list of games.... Save for AC3.....The UK gaming scene lost it's marbles when Amstrad bought Sinclair..... and still hasn't found them.

It's a poor time for the UK. Most people are skint off Christmas. Two major chains are going down the crapper and leaving the worst one of them all to pick up the pieces. Nobody is buying consoles, especially when some shops overprice them. I'll really hate our country if Ni No Kuni doesn't even place in the top 20 when that releases. And it's a good game.

Not much released at this time of the year so DmC was always likely to take first. I am personally hoping for Ni No Kuni to make at least the top ten in two weeks time.
PrometheusFan's avatar
It'll be very lucky if it makes the top 20... but it should at least hit top 40. It's a game that's going to do better in other European territories rather than the UK I think.

It sure is nice to see FIFA or COD not in the number 1 position for once. Which reminds me I need to re-buy Skyrim! :O

This is a huge surprise considering all the fuss that was made over Dante's new design. Good job on winning people over, guys! It was a very brave move, but it doesn't seem to have hurt. At least not in the UK.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
