Bioshock Infinite sticks to top of UK games chart

Two weeks in a row as top title

STEAMPUNK SHOOT 'EM UP Bioshock Infinite is on the top of the UK games sales chart for the second week in a row.

The game rushed to the top of the UK games chart last week, and outsold its predecessor Bioshock 2 by 9,000 copies.

It has stuck there for a second week, and kept competition like Luigi's Mansion 2 from a shot at the pinnacle.

Presently competition is scarce. Luigi is limited to Nintendo 3DS, meaning that its sales will perhaps always pale compared to those of other, cross-console titles. Tomb Raider, which remains in second place, and has already had a spot at the top of the charts, outsold Bioshock Infinite in its first week of release.

There was one new entry in the top ten this week, Defiance from Trion Worlds. That came in at number three.

Defiance, which is a tie-in to a SyFy channel television show, is available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PCs. The show does not start until mid April, so it is possible that sales might get a second boost when it airs.

While Electronic Arts was sitting pretty with the highest number of titles in the top ten last week, it has only two this week, however one is a re-entry.

There have been a couple of interesting movements, and EA has seen its Need for Speed Most Wanted climb seven places and regain its spot in the top ten for the first time in five weeks.

Activision Blizzard's Skylanders Giants climbed six places to number nine. This puts it back in the top ten for the first time since the end of last year. µ
