Notable drop in UK retail sales for Guild Wars 2

Sleeping Dogs has retaken the top of the UK sales charts marking its third week at number one, while last week's number one Guild Wars 2 has dropped down to sixth position overall.
Newsbrief: Sleeping Dogs has retaken the top of the UK sales charts marking its third week at number one, while last week's number one Guild Wars 2 has dropped down to sixth position overall. Guild Wars 2 experienced an 84 percent drop in sales week-over-week at retail, in a week that saw only one new entry into the top 40 -- The Sims 3 expansion Supernatural, which entered at number two. Chart-Track did not specify the reason for Guild Wars 2's drop in UK physical retail sales. But demand for the game has been strong enough that developer ArenaNet has restricted digital sales of the game to just the higher-priced collector's edition, as the company gets a handle on server load. Other notable declines in sales included New Super Mario Bros 2, down 40 percent week-over-week, and Madden NFL 13, down 48 percent.
