Mafia II Leads Again, Metroid Misses Top 10 In UK

Take-Two's Mafia II reached the top position on the UK retail game charts for the second week in a row, despite a 23 percent drop in sales, as Nintendo's Metroid: Other M debuted at number 12.
Take-Two's Mafia II reached the top position on the all-platform UK sales charts for the second week in a row despite a 23 percent week-on-week drop in sales for the week ended September 4, Chart-Track said Monday. Take-Two said in a recent earnings call that it expects Mafia II, developed by 2K Czech, to be "another profitable title for Take-Two." The game debuted at number one in the UK the prior week, following its August 27 launch in the region. Nintendo and Team Ninja's Metroid: Other M wasn't able to crack the top 10 in the UK, debuting at number 12 on the all-platforms chart, following its September 3 launch.
