UK Chart: BioShock Infinite claims third week at the top

Tomb Raider finishes second for the fourth week in a row.

Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite has enjoyed its third week on top of the UK charts, beating out runner-up Tomb Raider by just over 2,500 copies sold.

Tomb Raider has now been second in the charts for four weeks running.

FIFA 13 rounds out the top three, swapping positions with Defiance since last week. The MMO shooter with a TV show spin-off has to settle for fourth place in its second week on sale.

Luigi's Mansion 2 remains in fifth for its third week, followed up by the usual assortment of familiar titles: Call of Duty: Black Ops II in sixth, Assassin's Creed III in seventh, Gears of War: Judgment in eighth, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes in ninth, and Far Cry 3 in 10th.

This week sees the release of DC Comics' fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Will it be able to knock BioShock Infinite off the top spot next week?

Bioshock Infinite is an over rated, stupid piece of crap. Also, the girl they keep showing us from it is ugly as hell.

I must be a hipster because I have no interest in Bioshock. Just kidding about the hipster part. But the real news to me is Just Dance is at #18. That right there gives me hope.

Will probably buy bioshock, but Im in no rush.

Wont try Tomb Raider, never wanted to play, but no the story. Just not into that style

But yes... both games are pretty epic.

Bioshock Infinite;

9 out of 10 for gameplay.

7 out of 10 for the story (ending)

...I sat there after I was done and was like "really?...They went there? ug..."

Now with Levine's continuing success, go hunt down the rights to System Shock already!

I would if I had the money.

I rarely get that drive to finish a game, and bioshock infinite filled that bill for me. So glad i bought it despite the fact i didn't really get in to the first one.

Funny how Infinite is basically Bioshock 2 in terms of story (which it gets crap for), except with time paradoxs to try and shoehorn all it's plot issues, and an ending that doesn't work unless you some how believe that looney toons physics work in real life, and a game even MORE linear in design and gameplay (yet another thing it gets crap for), and yet somehow it's pretty colors blows off all it's OTHER glaring and back pedaling issues it had, like about half the content in a shoddy 4 hour game.. yet some how get's tons of great scores... I'm losing my faith in humanity and gamers on a daily basis now...

Bioshock Infinite sucks. Quit shoving it down my throat. Didn't like it then, won't like it now.

Hey I thought Tomb Raider wasn't profitable and solely due to the "high-end" graphics as argued by one of gamespot's editor, Tom Shea, who made that conclusion out of thin air.

This will fail, just like the star wars game, rift, final fantasy, need I go on?

Tomb Raider is the best game I've played this year.

A sales chart based only on physical copies sold gets more and more obsolete every month - and yet they do nothing to update it.

Who'd have thought that an MMO *might* just sell a few digital copies

Wait... I'm just wondering how the hell did SimCity of all games make 19 on the list?

Rightfully so! I'll wait for DLC deals tough. And Tomb Rider is in my wishlist: it will be new or digital, want to support it.

Epic game deserves an epic spot. Infinite deserves it.

Having a great time with bioshock infinite so far, just landed at the beach while escaping songbird, i am quite amazed at elizabeth she truly is a Disney princess, i mean what a bunch of adorable bytes, probably the best female sidekick since hl2 alex. Such an artsy aaa title which is rare these days.

Far Cry 3 is better than Bioshock, it should rule at the number one position...

For a pedantic game, Bioshock is doing quite well.

I do not understand what gamers want these days.  These games deserve being on top.  

1. Bioshock Infinite is an amazing game!

2. Tomb Raider is a great game!

3. People that are looking for great games should get both of them!

4. If you are actually going to rip these games then come up with better reasons then this game is awful or this is just another shooter so what?

5. Bioshock Infinite is one of the best games I have played in a while.  Tomb Raider is the best of the series in my opinion.  Tomb Raider is so good that I actually went back and got 100% on the map.

Bioshock infinity is an excelent game for sure and it deserves all the buzz but is not as good as the first game in my opinion, not by a long shot.

BioShock Infinite was really a great game. It was the first game I actually finished in a LONG time. I mean, probably the first story-based game in at least 10yrs, and it was worth it. Although it seemed a little weird... hunt for hidden stuff, clear an area of bad guys... repeat... something about it kept me glued. The ending was truly great. Glad not only it's available on YouTube to enjoy forever, but explanations so I'm not confused. I just wonder how long now I have to wait for that season pass content.

@hekifier 

lol you act like you were forced to read this article.  I'm thinking you're just upset because you never got a copy for yourself.  Keep at that paper route...you'll have enough for your very own copy one day!

@Karmazyn 

why comparing Far Cry 3 to Bioshock... ? one is sci-fi and one is modern... out of genre...you should have put it like:

 Far Cry 3 vs Battlefield 3

Bioshock vs Dishonored...

@Karmazyn I disagree. They're close, but BioShock is far more original and memorable.

@Cashmoney007 No they should. It they are looking for a great game they should skip Bioshock Infinite. That would be if they are looking for a decent rental.

@roman4545 @Karmazyn Both are action FPSs. If you compare settings both are different but overall those games are FPSs. I do get your point though.
