UK software chart still infected with Naughty Dog fever

There's only one new entry on the UK software chart top twenty this week, but at 15 PQube's MotoGP 13 is in no danger of dislodging The Last Of Us from number 1.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf also holds onto its position from last week, giving it its second week at 2. Just behind it at 5 is surprise re-entry Max Payne 3, which enjoys a second shot at the top ten thanks to a new 10 price tag on both consoles.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops II also saw a 55 per cent rise in sales thanks to price promotions, allowing it to commando crawl its way back to 6 from last week's 14.

Glad to see Max Payne 3 back in the charts, it's such a spectacular polished experience and although it was successful, for its scale it seemed to kind of slip under the radar a little bit.

It is amazing how long titles hang around in the charts these days. It must be the very small number of new releases that's responsible.

...Or maybe because It's a good game that people is liking a lot and worth playing.

But I guess you are not interested if it's not a mobile game, right? Call me when we see something like this in a Smartphone or tablet.
