UK Sales: Aliens CM Now in Top 10 Multiplatform Sellers

ASRT, Football Manager 2014 Also Up

Never mind the fact that all three Sega titles in the UK’s GFK Chart Track multiplatform top 40 for last week.  For one reason or another, Sega’s once abhorred Aliens: Colonial Marines is climbing its way toward the top of the charts again.  The title placed 10th overall for last week, up five places from the previous week, and remains the second best selling budget title behind Minecraft: XBOX 360 Edition.  The first person shooter did perform a few places better in its first couple weeks on sale.

Football Manager 2014 crept up three more places week to week to 14th.  Meanwhile, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed jumped four places to 33rd.

Why the surge? Are there literally no better titles to buy in the UK right now? Is the recent announcement of Aliens: Isolation rubbing off on the predecessor? Has the entire British population been overcome with PCP?  All those are mysteries; one thing for sure is that it will at least keep the Aliens name in the conversation as Isolation moves forward with development.
