PlayStation Vita launch title Uncharted: Golden Abyss has claimed top spot in the new UK all-format charts.Blatantly copy & pasted from Eurogamer
Another Vita exclusive, FIFA Football, scored second. It's worth noting that sales company Chart-Track does not count digital sales, meaning the games achieved their chart places based on boxed copies alone.
The two games accounted for 50 per cent of the total Vita software sold last week. There were 23 launch titles in total.
PlayStation Vita hardware sales data showed that 79 per cent of buyers chose the Vita's Wi-Fi version. Chart-Track does not publicly disclose sales figures.
EA shooter reboot Syndicate entered the chart in seventh, meanwhile, behind UFC3, FIFA 12, Rayman Origins and Mario & Sonic Olympics 2012.
Wii exclusive role-player The Last Story debuted in 15th place. The latest title from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi was not stocked at GAME or Gamestation in the UK.
But new Sega tactical shooter Binary Domain fared less well, landing 35th.
Other Vita games managing a place in the top 40 included WipEout 2048 (11th place), Ridge Racer (28th) and Everybody's Golf (32nd). And multi-platform game Rayman Origins shot up from 36th to 5th after the release of its Vita version.
All Format Charts:
So, a good start for the Vita, and especially to Uncharted and FIFA, underlining how mad about football the UK's gamers are. It also underlines how increasingly irrelevent GAME is, with The Last Story battering through GAME's failure to stock to reach the top ten single-format charts, with Rayman Origins powering up the charts thanks to being bundled with most Vitas, and no thanks to GAME (who are finally stocking Ubisoft's Vita titles from tomorrow). On the "failures" side of things, Syndicate has been a no-sell on the PS3, bringing up the rear although managing to push up one spot from the 360 version's single format release. While Wipeout missing the top ten may be a surprise, this is more due to the fact that it's only available on one format, than the Vodaphone deal. As ever which video games charts, these figures represent box sales only and digital distribution (e.g. aforementioned Wipeout deal) is not included.
