UK Charts: Gears of War Judgment Takes Top Spot
A new week, a new chart. And it seems that the lack of marketing for Gears of War: Judgment didn't harm it in the slightest - the spinoff shooter swiftly snatched the top of the UK Charts from Tomb Raider.

While impressive in terms of chart positions, it's worth noting that its predecessor Gears of War 3 sold around four times as much as Judgment did in its launch week. Could have everything to do with the latter's release being in March, though.

{NE} - 01 - Gears of War: Judgment - Microsoft
{01} - 02 - Tomb Raider - Square Enix
{NE} - 03 - The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct - Activision
{06} - 04 - FIFA 13 - Electronic Arts
{04} - 05 - Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 - City Interactive
{02} - 06 - God of War: Ascension - Sony
{NE} - 07 - Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate - Capcom
{05} - 08 - SimCity - Electronic Arts
{07} - 09 - Far Cry 3 - Ubisoft
{09} - 10 - Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Activision Blizzard

The detail, courtesy of Chart-Track: "A survivor of another kind is ‘FIFA 13’ (+32%), 26 weeks never outside the Top 6 and up 2 places this week to No4. In their second weeks of release ‘Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2’ (-37%) and ‘God of War: Ascension’ (-61%) both fall one place and four places respectively to No’s 5 and 6.

Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate Edition’ debuts at No7 with the 3DS version accounting for 55% of sales and Wii U the rest. The Wii U title accounts for almost 50% of the value generated by all Wii U software this week. ‘SimCity’ (-33%) drops from No5 to No8, ahead of previous All Formats No1s ‘Far Cry 3’ (+18%) at No9 and ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (+27%) at No10.

Price promotions give a boost to ‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ (+114%), up from No19 to No11 and ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ (+71%) up from No21 to No16."
