God of War: Ascension managed less than half of the week one sales than its predecessor God of War III did in 2010, though it's the second-biggest opening for a title in God of War series so far.
Blizzard's StarCraft II expansion Heart of the Swarm finished third, ahead of Namco Bandai's Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 in fourth. The original Sniper never managed a chart finish above eighth.
SimCity dropped to fifth place, ahead of FIFA 13 in sixth.
Far Cry 3 charted seventh, Crysis 3 eighth, Call of Duty: Black Ops II ninth, and The Sims 3: University Life in tenth.
