BioShock Infinite is UK number one

By Rachel Weber

BioShock Infinite is UK number one

Tue 02 Apr 2013 9:21am GMT / 5:21am EDT / 2:21am PDT

And biggest launch for the franchise so far

BioShock Infinite is the UK software chart's latest number one, and the second biggest launch of the year. It's also the biggest launch week for a BioShock title so far, outselling Bioshock 2 by close to 9000 copies in week one. It's worth nothing this chart doesn't track sales made through Steam, and today alone the game saw 23,738 players.

Thanks to price promotions and a resulting 45 per cent boost in sales Tomb Raider is still at number two, and despite BioShock Infinite's success Lara's adventure is still the biggest release of 2013 so far.

Other new entries in the charts were Luigi's Mansion 2 at 5 and EA's Army Of Two: The Devil's Cartel at 6 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 at 8. Wii U exclusive Lego City Undercover entered at 12, while Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time only managed to sneak in at 31.

Also those steam concurrent users numbers actually include the sales from chart track since even if you buy the boxed retail version, you have to go through Steam to play the game .So either way it will be hard to get real numbers for PC out of this stat :)

" It's worth nothing this chart doesn't track sales made through Steam"

Awesome typo, the kind that can completely change the meaning of a sentence! :)

Crazy how games like FIFA are still so damn popular. They're always in the charts.
