As the Colonial Marines head south and no new ideas appear anywhere.

UK Charts - Crysis for Metal Gear Rising
The UK All Formats, All Prices, All Singing, All Dancing, Mostly Sequels charts are in the house courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track. Last week's surprise-for-the-critics #1, Aliens: Colonial Marines (reviewed here) is knocked from its buggy roost by Crysis 3 (reviewed here).

This, of course, means that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (reviewed here) doesn't get to #1 but instead sits at #2 in its shame.

So, what original IP featured in the chart Top 20? None. Zilch. Nada. Everything in the Top 20 is lovely and basically familiar.

Here's what Chart-Track says:

"Two new entries at No1 and No2 is a first for 2013, however neither's launch week can match those of previous No1s Aliens: Colonial Marines or Dead Space 3. There is a gap of 5,500 sales between the two newcomers with Crysis 3 benefiting from also being available on PC as well as Xbox 360 and PS3. Xbox 360 is the lead format for Crysis 3 with 57% of sales, while PS3 is the bigger seller for Metal Gear with 61%. Four out of the eight UK All Formats No1 so far this year are represented by 3 different EA titles. FIFA 13 is still proving popular, a non-mover at No3 with sales up 25% on last week. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (+0%) is also a non-mover at No4.

"Dead Space 3 (-54%) falls 4 places to No6, keeping it ahead of Far Cry 3 (-21%) at No7 and Need for Speed Most Wanted (+13%) at No8. The last two places in the Top 10 are occupied by an Assassin and a Hitman with Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III (-5%) at No9 and Square's Hitman Absolution (-2%) at No10.
