SSX tops UK Charts
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
EA snowboarding reboot SSX has claimed first place in the UK all-formats chart.
It is the first time an SSX game has ever hit the top spot. Chart-Track does not divulge sales figures, but SSX sold more than double the previous best-placed game in the series, SSX 3, back in 2003.
Nintendo’s mini-game collection scored its best-ever chart placing too – two places higher than previous best Mario Party 8. It landed just behind FIFA 12, which scored second.
PlayStation Vita exclusive Uncharted: Golden Abyss, last week’s number one, fell to fourth place. Sales were down 71 per cent.
After last week’s flurry of launches, Uncharted and FIFA Football (down from second to eighth) are the only Vita exclusives still clinging to the chart.
Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympics was fifth, while UFC Undisputed 3 and Modern Warfare 3 were sixth and seventh, respectively. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and Battlefield also made the top ten.
