UK Chart: DmC Devil May Cry debuts at No.1

DmC Devil May Cry has entered the UK all formats chart at No.1 for the week ended January 19.

The Ninja Theory developed series reboot secures publisher Capcom its first chart top spot since Resident Evil 5 back in March 2009, despite its launch week sales coming in at just over a third of Devil May Cry 4’s when that game reached No.1 back in February 2008.

We said in our DmC Devil May Cry review: “It's challenging, accessible, and experimental in all the right ways, while retaining the top-notch combat that put Dante on the map in the first place.”

The game ended FIFA 13’s two week run at the top of the all formats chart, with the football title dropping to No.2 ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3 and Need For Speed: Most Wanted.

GfK/Chart-Track Top 10:

  • DmC Devil May Cry (Capcom)
  • FIFA 13 (EA)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Activision)

      Welp, that's it. After reading the impassioned debate taking place below this simple UK Charts update piece, I've made up my mind on whether or not I will buy this game. I will, just to spite MetroidPrimeRib. That alone is reason enough to completely justify my purchasing decision. Also, BladedFalcon is the man.

      Breaking news : emo assholes with cursing and makeup fixations steal the spotlight yet again, stay tuned for more mind blowing coverage. I will never understand how people can like DmC, even the old ones. I saw that missile riding sequence and lost my shit at his "wahoos".

      The British government is one of the worst in the world for supporting home grown talent. Our studios are closing left, right and centre due to the lack of tacx incentives and the fact there is no investment in pushing game development as a viable career path. Even codemasters are laying staff off which, considering there position at the forefront of the entire driving genre, is pretty worrying.

      Good for DmC! I'm glad it's doing well. It's an excellent addition to the franchise.
