Halo 4 tops UK charts with weaker sales than previous installments

The long-awaited Halo 4 debuted at the top of the UK sales charts last week, although it didn't manage to beat week-one sales for previous top-sellers Halo 3 and Halo: Reach.
Newsbrief: The long-awaited Halo 4 debuted at the top of the UK sales charts last week, although it didn't manage to beat week-one sales for previous top-sellers Halo 3 and Halo: Reach. The latest title in the Halo series pushed last week's number one, Assassin's Creed III, down to number two with a 73 percent drop in sales week-over-week. With Call of Duty: Black Ops II arriving this week at retail, it's safe to assume that Halo 4 won't be sticking at the top of the charts for long. According to Chart-Track, the only other newly released title in the charts last week was LittleBigPlanet Karting for PlayStation 3, which launched at number 24 in the charts.
