Big Drops Week to Week
It appears the honeymoon is over for Aliens: Colonial Marines, at least in the UK. The latest charts from GFK, considered official data for the region, show a significant drop from last week’s report.
Specifically, A:CM dropped eight places in the latest charts, from 7th to 15th in the multiplatform top 40–a worse position than where Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was last week. But even ASR Transformed was not immune to the sales fatigue; it fell ten places from last week, from 14th to 24th. Sega’s Football Manager 2013 also fell six places to 29th.
The one bright spot was Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, which moved up four places week-to-week to place 27th in the latest charts.
