Latest Charts, w/e March 24: Gears of War arrives in top spot

Third place goes to Activision's Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, while FIFA 13 and Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 make up the top five. Sony's God of War: Ascension falls to sixth place, Monster Hunter arrives in seventh and EA's Simcity takes eighth spot. Far Cry 3 and Black Ops round up the top 10.

And the god awful Survival instinct is number 3? Goes to show how much a name truly can sell a product!

Gears of War is number 1, name alone sells anything these days.

To be honest I'm surprised the walking dead didn't take the top spot, I have that much faith in people's blind stupidity. Nice Monster Hunter made the top ten though.

Single biggest Wii U game release since the console launched and it doesn't even break the top ten (Going by individual console SKU chart, as 3DS version accounted for majority of sales overall). At least appears as though HMV's massive price cut on Wii U consoles last week caused a minor boost in hardware sales if NintendoLand scraping into the very bottom of the chart this week is any indicator. Good to see Gears at the top, but a shame to hear it's sold a lot less than Gears 3 did at launch... same thing as God of War last week... guess this console generation is all but done at this point.

Oh and I almost forgot. If you ask anyone who is interested in the game you will most of the time get this answer ''You get to play as Daryl'' with your answer being ''Who gives a flying ****)

I'm gonna rent Survival Instinct because I want a new game to play

Johno, do yourself a favour and rent Sniper GW 2 instead. It's not great, but if you're really hungry for something new it's definitely a better option than Walking Dead.

1 and 3 is further proof that you could package a turd and slap a name on it and get it to sell in this country. Nice to see Monster Hunter did pretty well. Considering it's an obscure game I was expecting it to hit around 30.

I didnt :( So I can only assume it is the original GTA making a come back like PJ and Duncan and not an error, as I tried to insinuate. Sorry :(

"1 and 3 is further proof that you could package a turd and slap a name on it and get it to sell in this country. Nice to see Monster Hunter did pretty well. Considering it's an obscure game I was expecting it to hit around 30." - There's nothing obscure about Monster Hunter. It's one of the biggest Japanese IPs, it's been the single biggest release on both Wii U and 3DS so far this year and it's actually seen reasonable advertising for a Nintendo exclusive title. Still sold garbage numbers however you slice it though. Somehow doesn't surprise me to see you (Inaccurately) labelling Gears a "turd" either. This another game you're going to pretend to have played so you can sound credible in dismissing it? It's not as good as previous games in the series maybe, but it's still better than just about anything else on this chart.

Not gonna argue that Walking Dead Survival instinct is a turd then? I would say that GoW is perhaps not a turd, but it is an uninspired and unneeded sequel/prequel to a franchise that should be allowed to pass, just like so many others at the end of this console generation.

Not played it yet. Played most of the other ones enough to form an opinion on the series. And considering this one is the least well received It's pretty much safe to say that If I played it. I would consider it a turd. Didn't you write off the new Tomb Raider game a few weeks back too? Despite not playing it? And just about every 3DS and Wii U game ever. It's times like this that I wish there was a block button on this site. Because you and all your alt accounts would be a good advertisement for it.

To be fair Gears Judgement is a bit of a turd, but so is kevin, so that's probably why he rates it. ;)

Quite an apt name change really, kevin does like crap, and Prometheus was probably the single biggest turd of last year.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
