Assassin's Creed slays chart rivals
Console and Vita releases debut on UK software chart
What a week to be an assassin. Not only has Ubisoft's Assassin Creed III taken the number one spot and officially become the publisher's biggest launch title ever, but even PlayStation Vita exclusive Assassin's Creed III Liberation has entered at 14.
Assassin's Creed III outsold last year's Assassin's Creed: Revelations by 117,000 units, with 59 per cent of sales on Xbox 360 and 41 per cent on PlayStation 3. It's the second biggest launch of the year on the UK software charts, just behind FIFA 13. Assassin's Creed III Liberation is Vita's third largest launch.
And the excitement wasn't just confined to stabbier franchises, it was all change in the top ten too. WWE'13 debuted on the chart at 3, closely followed by Football Manager 2013 at 4 and Need For Speed Most Wanted at 5. Last week's top game Medal Of Honor: Warfighter was pushed all the way back to 6.
