Filed under News

TombRaider Review Screen1Tomb Raider has secured the No.1 spot on all formats with the biggest launch of 2013 to date.

The series reboot comfortably outsold 2013’s previous best launch, Aliens: Colonial Marines, by more than two to one, according to retail monitor Chart Track.

It also beat 2006’s Tomb Raider: Legend to achieve record first week sales for the franchise, although it should be pointed out that the game was the first in the series to launch as an ‘Event’ title on a Tuesday.

SimCity, which has suffered a highly troubled launch, debuted strongly at No.2, ahead of fellow new releases Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 and The Sims 3: University Life, which is the ninth expansion pack for the EA game.

Top 10 (previous week):

  1. Tomb Raider (Square Enix)
  2. SimCity (EA)
  3. Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (Namco)
  4. The Sims 3: University Life (EA)
  5. FIFA 13 (EA)
  6. Crysis 3 (EA)
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Activision)
  8. Far Cry 3 (Ubisoft)
  9. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Konami)
  10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
