Resident Evil 5 Apparently Quite Popular in the UK

1 min read

SpottedDick Resident Evil 5 has, amidst renewed claims of racism and complaints about archaic controls managed to do quite well in the UK. Not just well, mind you; that would a gross oversimplification. Resident Evil 5, you see, has debuted at number 1 on the UK charts. Even that is not it’s most heralded achievement to date; it’s managed to outsell the combined total of all other top-ten entrants.

While the rest of the chart contains nothing particularly mind-blowing, it is interesting to note that last week’s number 1 – Empire : Total War has slipped 7 places down to number 8. More telling of UK game buying habits though is that Wii Fit is back up to number two, and that Mario and Sonic at the Olympics is back in the Top Ten. Of course, they also eat spotted dick and black pudding* – so there’s obviously no accounting for taste.

Top Ten all-format UK titles after the jump!

1 Resident Evil 5  PS3, Xbox 360
2 Wii Fit  Wii
3 Tom Clancy’s HAWX  PS3, Xbox 360

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
