Halo 4 UK launch can't topple Halo 3, Halo: Reach

First-week sales of Microsoft's new sci-fi shooter not enough to beat out 2007's Halo 3 or 2010's Halo: Reach.


Halo 4

Halo 4 was the United Kingdom's best selling title last week, but the first core title from 343 Industries fell short of sales milestones from Bungie-developed entries. According to the latest Chart Track data, Halo 4's first-week sales were good enough for the 18th biggest launch in the region to date, behind 2010's Halo: Reach (12th) and 2007's Halo 3 (15th).

Halo 4 sold "slightly more" units than last week's top-seller Assassin's Creed III to earn the top spot, with Ubisoft's new stealth-action game slipping to the number two spot. Rounding out the top five were FIFA 13, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and Football Manager 2013.

Of note, Electronic Arts (3) led all publishers in representation on the top ten list, followed by Ubisoft (2). Additionally, no non-sequels made it on the week's top-selling list.
