Mass Effect 3 tops charts, sells more than previous 2 games combined

/ 7 years ago

Mass Effect 3 is the UK’s new all-formats chart number one.

But exactly how well did it do? Chart-Track doesn’t publicly reveal sales figures, but mentioned Mass Effect 3 was comfortably the biggest game launch of the year so far. It has already outsold the previous four number ones (SSX, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, UFC3 and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning).

BioWare’s third entry in its space opera trilogy outsold the launch weeks of Mass Effect 1 and 2 combined, although release dates on separate platforms were previously staggered.

73 per cent of Mass Effect 3’s boxed sales were on Xbox 360, although that doesn’t count digital downloads on PlayStation 3 or PC.

This all meant that last week’s number one, SSX, was shunted into second spot ahead of new entry Street Fighter x Tekken, which landed third.

The Sims 3: Showtime scored sixth place, while PlayStation Vita shooter Unit 13 entered the charts for the first time in fifteenth.

Cinematic deity-filled beat-’em-up Asura’s Wrath failed to chart at all, however. It, like Mass Effect 3, Street Fighter x Tekken and The Sims 3 Showtime, wasn’t stocked by GAME.

FIFA 12, Mario Party 9, Mario & Sonic London Olympics, Modern Warfare 3, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and Zumba Fitness also made the chart’s top flight.
