Crysis 3 takes down Colonial Marines

EA shooter enters UK software charts at number one

Crysis 3 has entered on the UK software charts at number 1, knocking Aliens: Colonial Marines down to 5. It was followed by slice and dice spin off Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which appeared at 2, 5,500 sales behind the number 1.

The majority of Crysis 3 copies were sold on Xbox 360, at 57 per cent, while Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance fans made their purchase for PS3, with 61 per cent opting for the Sony console.

GfK Chart-Track points out that while having a new number 1 and 2 is a first for this year, both games fell short of the launch numbers Aliens and Dead Space 3 recently enjoyed.
