More than likely it didn't. Even with all these new releases at the top it's still a rather low week.
Sadly Chart-Track didn't report the drops/increases this week, but the PS3 version of Injustice did 13.8k last week and is still higher than the 3DS LEGO game.

Assuming a decent drop for Injustice (50%), it did about 6.9k this week, which is significantly lower than Lego City Undercover for WiiU (9.5k).


I almost forgot that Injustice for WiiU released that week. Didn't make it in the top 40 and is 5th in the WiiU charts behind the stand alone version of NintendoLand. Probably just below 1.000 units.


Injustice Wii U released a week later than the other versions in the UK. Also, no pre order incentives and no guaranteed DLC. It's like they wanted to check every possible box to make the game bomb as hard as possible on Wii U.

 

Edit: I almost forgot, they also didn't send out review copies for the Wii U version.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

Interesting to notice how Fifa keeps steady on UK charts.. oh well...
... that´s no real surprise. They love football (soccer in America).

It´s just that, even being a Brazilian (a country known for its passion for soccer), I find soccer matches pretty repetitive and, sometimes, boring, even on videogames

That might be optimistic.  Even if Injustice only dropped 50%, we would be looking at around 700 for the Wii U version.  If it was a 75% drop, that would mean only about 350 sales for the Wii U version.

Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed U? The hell?

In France it´s the same trend - the WiiU version sells better than the others.
Can anyone find a reasonable explanation for this ? Maybe Nintendo fans are more likely to enjoy Sonic games ?

In the UK it has consistently been below the 360, 3DS, and PS3 versions (though a greater proportion than other games).  I'd imagine there was some sort of price reduction at a retailer last week.  It wouldn't take much to get into the top 40.

A lot of people I know that aren't really informed think that Sonic is a Nintendo character.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl prolly enforced Sonic a little.

Yeah, Call of Duty: Black Ops II woohooo!

At just £8, it was bound to sell something. 

Pretty poor drop in sales for Dead Island: Riptide compared to the original game, I know personally the first game seemed awful, so I don't think many people were hyped for the game :/

Based on that estimate, how much do u fink Dragon's Dogma sold?

Maybe 12k which would break down to 6.7k for 360 and 5.3k for PS3.
