U.S. Gaming Charts: February 12th – February 18th
Change, change, change. So much change in the last few weeks, with new releases making a splash as the year finally begins to take off. There’s no denying that people still like sniping each other off scaffolding, rooftops, and helicopters with Modern Warfare 3, but Sony’s demolition derby with clowns and ice cream trucks took the sweet spot this week as Twisted Metal raced to #1.
Not far behind (and certainly not to be outdone on the demolition part), UFC Undisputed fought its way into the ring for both the #2 and #3 spots on its respective platforms. The Fateless One slipped just a little, landing now at the #5 spot, but it still remained just a little ahead of Modern Warfare 3 at the #6 spot.
Vita games made a bit of a splash, as both Little Deviants and Uncharted: Golden Abyss landed within the Top 20. They’re still getting eclipsed by their console counterparts. Last but not least, the Dragonborn continues to hold on ever so delicately, bringing up the rear at the #20 spot this past week.
