'Sniper Elite 3' Tops Sales Charts In Britain For Second Week, Rebellion's Game Lets Brits Work Out Some World Cup Aggression; 'Watch Dogs' Sells Big In Japan
The Brits never tire of putting a delayed beatdown on Hitler and the Nazi forces. Sniper Elite III, the first person sniper adventure, remains number one on the UK charts for a second straight week. If Germany is going to win that damn World Cup, then the British are going to continue to shoot Hitler in the balls again and again and again.
Watch Dogs remains in the #2 spot across the pond. Meanwhile, across the...lake?, Ubisoft's game sold over 94,000 units in Japan during its first week, just bumping off Mario Kart 8 to take the top of the charts there. Ubisoft expects the brand new IP to sell 6 million units over the course of its lifetime. It has already sold over 4 million.
World Cup fever won't die down until the final minute of stoppage time. FIFA 14 shot up three spots from 6 to 3 and I seriously would not be surprised if it got even higher before the end. Even I want more football in my life. The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil game edged into the top 10 to #8.
Titanfall and the seriously great Wolfenstein: The New Order hold steady at 4 and 5. Call of Duty: Ghosts jumped two spots, from 8 to nab 6, due most likely to the Invasion DLC that launched last week. I guess people were more interested in watching UFC than playing UFC, as the latest in EA's franchise slipped from 3 to 7. I'm sure Rhonda Roussey will help boost sales in the coming week.
Rounding out 9 and 10 is, unsurprisingly, Minecraft! The PS3 and 360 versions switched places from last week.
Doubtful if anything will challenge Sniper Elite III this week. The only major new release is the final chapter in Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us, which hits Wednesday. You can find the full list of weekly sales here.
