Saints Row IV tops UK charts

by William Schwartz


Loud-mouthed open-world game Saints Row IV has stormed to the top of the UK All Formats Charts following a successful launch last week.

The game, which is the first in the series to be published by Deep Silver after purchasing the rights from the now-defunct THQ, has claimed the 4th largest game launch in the UK this year, being beaten by BioShock: Infinite, Tomb Raider and The Last Of Us. It couldn’t however, match it’s predecessor Saints Row: The Third on first week sales.

Elsewhere in the charts, The Last Of  Us slips down from 6th to 9th, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist debuts in 2nd and Payday 2 falls from 1st right back down to 18th spot. Here are the top 10:

  • Saints Row IV – Koch Media
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist – Ubisoft
  • Disney Infinity – Disney Interactive Studios
  • Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition – Microsoft
