UK Charts: Kinect Star Wars Forces Its Way To Number One

By David Howard, Editor-in-Chief and Founder

UK Charts ending April 7, 2012

Showing that the Star Wars brand still carries its own weight in gold, Kinect Star Wars usurps EA at the top of the UK chart to be this week’s number one – it’s the first Star Wars game to enter at top spot since Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and the first Kinect game ever. FIFA Street is subsequently pushed into second, with  Mass Effect 3 in third, FIFA 12 in fourth and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 in fifth, maintaining EA’s strong hold on the top five.

Holiday sales saw most of the top twenty receive a boost in sales, but the only other new release was Devil May Cry HD which debuted at eighteenth.
