Homefront Video Game Takes Top Spot on UK Game Chart

By Posted 21 Mar 2011, 15:52

Despite a difference of opinion amongst critics and the problems that gamers began reporting shortly after it was released, Kaos Studios and THQ’s Homefront video game has somehow managed to take the top spot in the UK game chart this past weekend.

According to David Jenkins on the metro.co.uk website, the controversial first-person shooter managed to knock BioWare’s Dragon Age II game down to No. 2. The Xbox 360 version took the biggest share of the overal sales, with a massive 70% of buyers choosing to purchase that version.

Meanwhile, the PlayStation 3 version took 26 percent of the sales and the Microsoft Windows version just 4%. The recently released PC title Total War: Shogun 2 entered the chart at number four, while 2K Sports’ Top Spin 4 game debuted at a slightly disappointing number 13.

Sega’s PlayStation 3 title Yakuza 4 on the other hand debuted at number 25. Last week’s No. 2 Pokemon White version dropped down to number 3 this week, while the Pokemon Black version dropped to number 5. EA’s Fight Night Champion 3 was this week’s No. 6, while Just Dance 2 took 7th position.

Finishing off the Top Ten were FIFA 11, Killzone 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, which made its way back up the charts from being at No. 13 last week. Are you surprised to see the Homefront game at the tope of the UK game chart?
