UK Video Game Chart: Long Live Dante!
It's official - gamers love the new Dante. Ninja Theory's reboot of Capcom's admired action series, Devil May Cry, has seen just as much success in sales as it has with fans and critics alike, as DmC knocks FIFA 13 off the #1 spot in the UK Video Game Chart.

It marks Capcom's first #1 ranking since Resident Evil 5's release back in 2009, according to number crunchers Chart-Track. The organisation added that "DmC sells over a third of what Devil May Cry 4 did at launch when it also reached No1, back in Week 6 2008."

The rest of the Top 10 hasn't seen much action, with Call of Duty Black Ops II, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Just Dance 4 and Skyrim staying put in their respective positions while the rest of the world moves around them. Far Cry 3 falls to #4 and Hitman Absolution drops to #8, while Football Manager 2013 and Assassin's Creed III rise the ranks.

‘FIFA 13’ (-40%) drops to No2 ahead of ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (-26%), while ‘Far Cry 3’ (-49%) falls 2 places to No4. There is no change at No5 and No6 with ‘Need for Speed Most Wanted’ (-35%) and ‘Just Dance 4’ (-18%) both non-movers. ‘Football Manager 2013’ (-16%) is up one place to No7, while sales of ‘Hitman Absolution’ (-50%) are cut in half, knocking it from No4 to No8. The Top 10 is rounded off by ‘Skyrim’ (-20%) at No9 and ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (-21%) at No10. DMC is the only new release to chart this week.

You reached this conclusion after *one* week of sales?? Ye gods, either you guys work in hyperbole like others work in watercolors or you really need to put the crack pipe down--come talk to us when it manages to out-sell DMC4. Until then, seriously, get a grip.

Note: FIFA 13 has been out for how long now? Do you think, perhaps, part of this might involve the fact that sales for FIFA are just about tapped out? Maybe? Nah, too much thinking, right!
