Sega and Gearbox Software’s Aliens: Colonial Marines landed at the number one spot of the UK all formats chart in its debut week, beating out major players like Dead Space 3 and FIFA 13.
The year may still be young, but Chart-Track has stated that Colonial Marines is the the biggest launch of 2013 up to this point, and had the second best debut for an Alien franchise game. Sega’s Aliens vs Predator is the current king of the series, which released in 2010 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The top 10 can be seen below:
- Aliens: Colonial Marines (Sega)
- Dead Space 3 (EA)
- FIFA 13 (EA)
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Activision)
- Far Cry 3 (Ubisoft)
- Assassin’s Creed 3 (Ubisoft)
- Need for Speed: Most Wanted (EA)
- Just Dance 4 (Ubisoft)
- Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (Sega)
- Halo 4 (Microsoft)
It may have sold a few copies, but let’s just say our staff wasn’t exactly blown away by the title. Figures from the U.S. should be available soon.
