    1. This is actually great news. It is number 11 after a great game is released on the PS3. Animal crossing is number 3 and staying way up there. Animal crossing new leaf at number 3 is a nintendo first party game, that is bringing in money constantly to the big N. Pikmin 3 has actually even shocked us nintendo elites because it is a niché title. Making room for wonderful 101. Wait is their not Pikmin 3 digital sales that are not tracked on this list? Nintendo making dreams wonderful :).

      1. Indeed, they made our dreams wonderful with Mario & Luigi…

        I think TW101 will do atleast as good as Pikmin 3, potentially slightly better…

        That’s my prediction…

          1. I have been right about 90% of all my predictions so far so yes I can safely assume it’s highly likely…

            Compared to that creature Pachter that can’t predict anything even if its life depended on it…

    1. It’s number 11 fending of new releases like tales of Xillia and the smurfs 2. We did a great Job, late adopters are buying it, in the UK let alone. Nintendo now sees that great games sale, look at Animal crossing, the last of us and minecraft, diverse games keeping the top ten fresh :).

    2. Keep in mind that the UK is the second biggest Xbot infected territory after their homebase the US…

      So our Empire striking big blows with Pikmin 3 and a few 3DS games is remarkable…

    3. Agreed. Besides just because Pikmin is a fantastic, beautiful game, doesn’t make it a huge system seller. It’s really like the WiiU. Excellent in design, impossible to explain what it is. Lol

  1. The UK’s top 40 has not had a great genre variety as one we are witnessing in a long time. Happy am I that the overrated Bioshock infinite is in the 20s.

      1. Minecraft at least adds much needed variety to the FPS xbox360. I would not buy minecraft myself, but you probably knew that lol.

  2. Pikmin3 is more proof that nintendo doesn’t know what’s its doing. There is not advertisement except for the ppl that havd the wiiu. Im sorry only ppl watching nintendo directs r wiiu owners and ppl that write about it. All those wii ppl have. O clue what a wiiu is nor hear about wiiu games as they r not advertised.

    1. Pikmin 3 is number 11. That is a great number with all the above games above it being stellar. Smurfs 2 at number 10 is on the DS a Nintendo system. Nintendo has 3 games in the top ten which should be noted, the 3DS, the last of us, Animal crossing even minecraft are a breath of much needed fresh air. Nintendo have done very well with Pikmin 3, a niché title that has become a catalyst that sold more systems than any would have imagined :).

  3. Who cares about the UK? It should be renamed Xbox Kingdom, they only play Minecraft, FIFA and FPS on their Xboxes…

  4. Just goes to show the UK doesn’t know a good game when they see one… That and sales suck in UK anyway so who’s still counting?
