UK Chart: Injustice knocks BioShock Infinite into second place

Fire Emblem: Awakening launches in third place.

DC fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us has dethroned BioShock Infinite's three-week stint as king of the UK charts.

NetherRealm's Injustice is the first fighting game to claim top billing in the UK charts since UFC Undisputed 3 last year. It's also publisher Warner Bros.' first chart topper since LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

BioShock Infinite drops to second place, with 3DS RPG Fire Emblem: Awakening launching in third. The RPG helped boost hardware sales, too, with a 49 percent week-on-week increase in 3DS sales thanks to the launch of the Fire Emblem limited edition blue 3DS XL.

Tomb Raider drops two places to fourth, with Defiance dropping one spot to fifth.

The regular crop of familiar titles fill out the rest of the top 10: FIFA 13 is sixth, Call of Duty: Black Ops II seventh, Luigi's Mansion 2 eighth, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 ninth, and Far Cry 3 tenth.

The Top 20 UK chart for the week ending April 20:

1. Injustice: Gods Among Us
2. BioShock Infinite
3. Fire Emblem: Awakening
4. Tomb Raider
5. Defiance
6. FIFA 13

For those who still haven't got the game, Amazon is giving away free copies on this special linkhttp://bit.ly/ZtQ6aJ (I got mine today, though they require a verification process)

Injustice is cool no doubt, but it's really can't compare with Bioshock Infinite when it comes to narrative.

No doubt, Injustice is probably more entertaining gameplay was. 

But still not as good as Bioshock infinite....

The fact that a CoD game is even in the top 10 is sad indeed.

It's about time a game slapped that Bioshock Infinite crap in the ass like it deserves. Hell, I'd bet even Hello Kitty Adventures would shoot bullets into that crappy game until it became cottage cheese. People can like whatever they want, but I'll be damned if I let video game sites and fan boys shove that crap up my ass without stating my piece. Bioshock Infinite is a big steaming pile of crap. All the fan boys who got all up in arms because that freak-show didn't get a 10/10 when it already got a grossly overrated 9.5 only help fuel my rage. Like its this sacred godly gift that was slammed on the earth like a meteorite to end the whole world's suffering. No. It's just some crappy, by-the-numbers sequel. With a hideous female lead by the way, which I get tired of seeing her face blown up real big on my computer screen every-time I look at Gamespo'ts news. As if she's the most beautiful girl on Earth, right? Kinda like this game itself!  It's like people aren't allowed to like anything else, they aren't allowed to play anything else. If you don't like Bioshock Infinite, that makes you a f@g. That's the impression I'm getting.

BTW, if anybody hasn't seen my forum post about the 4 DLC characters for Injustice here they are:

These are 100% real too,

1) Lobo

2) Batgirl

3) Zod

4) Scorpion

injustice is good but is for cocaine people.The gameplay is too fast that i cant do anything against pro players.So in the end the game sucks cause does not give a chance for casuals.Except if you sniff cocain and drink another 5 bottles of redbull.

Dont buy it if you are going for multiplayer because you are gonna hate it

I had no idea Fire Emblem was so popular in the UK. Almost makes up for the fact that SimCity was still on this list last week =P

YES!!! So glad it's successful. I love this game :)

A 7.0 rating for Injustice truly doesn't do it justice. It's an injustice! I want to see DC vs Marvel Comics so we can have matchups like Hulk vs. Superman, Deadpool vs. Deathstroke, Thanos vs. Darkseid, Batman vs. Spiderman, etc. And improve upon it with a tag-battle system like Dead or Alive 5.

Injustice is alright, better than I was expecting but not exactly comprehensive for a fighter from the current Mortal Kombat devs.

Would've liked it if sales numbers were given, to help judge the extent of the effect the near month headstart Bioshock had.

@Necro_Fear89 There is a COD game in every top 10 list I have seen for the last 3-4 years. Very sad, indeed.

@Danu_06 Yep, it would be higher on the list if everybody didn't already have a console with fewer 3DS owners. Great game for sure.

@hekifierLike me and others why dont you test the game yourself? i dont trust any reviewer or any gaming site its all about the money interests and corruption so review the game yourself and then you can speak. Bioshock is actually a breath of fresh air and an art statment. Dont hate the game.try it you know you want to.

@bongsyas_23 That's why it's a good game... it actually takes you in depth instead of just being all like "ermagehrd! look! fighting! Herp Derp! this is fun to hit people!"

@tiagoyago UK sales. That includes (I guess) those imports from the rest of Europe since it's cheaper to buy games there.

@NbAlIvEr10000 yea, i dont think you analyze your predictions right. first of all, we already know that lobo is going to be the first dlc character, and scorpion, really, why would the developers put a MK character in a game that does not have fatalities. But number 3 is possible, and for 2, i dont think it will work out since batgirl fights like batman

@NbAlIvEr10000 the 2) is martianmanhunter

WarHead2011

@NbAlIvEr10000 YEAH! about that umm Scorpion?!? either the developers are smoking something that was laced or they are just plane idiots for putting a MK character in a DC based game even though it was developed by the same people.

@Seifer24 LOL at the cocaine part. Video games are amazing while coked up. Too bad I don't do that shit.

@Seifer24 It is actually very slow and calculated when compared to the likes of Street Fighter and MvC. I personally prefer it as a well placed combo doesn't have to be all and end all but also doesn't seem cheap. Even when playing multiplayer. 

The only thing that plagues MP is the people that spam and they are few and far between!

@badwedgie00 Batman vs Iron Man would be a better example I think - but other than that hell yeah! Hawkeye vs Green Arrow would be cool too and if it is as well written as Injustice we would be in for a treat story wise. I just hope it is not like MvC, I like that game but personally the art style and overall feel is better with I:GAU in that attacks feel deliberate and heavy.

@Viperr234 Infinite was a work of art, and a good game. I haven't played this game, so I can't comment on its gameplay, but it is by no means a work of art.

NbAlIvEr10000

@Viperr234 Obviously you're not a Bioshock fan.  Infinite in no way sucked.....might not of been as good as original 2, but definitely did not suck.

@jammer06 Well, believe what you want.  I have the Season Pass and have looked inside the files, because I have a jailbroken PS3 which allows me to do so.  Inside the file are clearly the DLC unlocks for Lobo, Batgirl, Zod, and Scorpion....... and to answer your ? why they would put Scorpion in the game; it is made by Neatherrealm studios the people behind MK and they can do whatever the fuck they want to do.

@1234ritchie @Seifer24It just feels impossible to play it against pros.so for me it was a bad buy.Maybe im getting too old for fighting games

badwedgie00

@1234ritchie @badwedgie00 I'd also like to see a more expanded roster, say about 50 characters... 25 from Marvel and 25 from DC. A game like that might take two years or so to develop, but it would be worth the hype, just like that Avengers movie. Batman vs. Wolverine -- who do you thik would win?

@Seifer24 @WarHead2011 @1234ritchie that's a joke right? the only time when you are officially a sour old man is when you deny your inner child likes and hobbies, beside, you are comparing 2 completely different thing, like "oh, i'm a casual and i can beat pro players so this game suck" of course you can't beat pro players, they are pro players and you are a casual one, they practice every day to go to tourneys and win money, you don't.

@Seifer24 @WarHead2011 @1234ritchie If you can't keep up with pros, that's your fault for being terrible. I'm not a big fighter fan, but I'm tired of CoD and other games being purposely unbalanced so that the awful players can do better.
