Prototype 2
This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written Monday, April 30, 2012 By Lee Bradley
View author's profile

Prototype 2 extends a tentacled arm and swings straight into number one in the UK charts this week, knocking The Witcher 2 from the top spot. The Namco Bandai published RPG slips to third place, while Kinect Star Wars - complete with bonkers dancing sections - hangs on in there at second.

Elsewhere, well, it's not terribly exciting. With very few new releases bothering stores, the rest of the chart merely shuffles around a little, moving up or down a spot to accommodate Prototype 2.

So instead we turn to look at those games with the greatest staying power. F1 2011 is still going strong, following a new Formula 1 season-inspired resurgence a few weeks back. It's the longest serving game in the top 20 with a whopping 32 weeks on the charts.

Just behind that is FIFA 12. The evergreen football sim has been around for 31 weeks now, most of which have been spent in the higher reaches of the top 20. Say what you want about the FIFA series and EA's various DLC and server policies, but people sure do lap it up. You can hear the cash registers ringing from here.

If you want a game that you can get 1000/1000 for in 2 days then get prototype 2, the gameplay is fun but it will NOT last you long.

Prototype 2?

There's not even been enough sales for it to reach #1

So how does this even work??

Surely this is based off of number of hours played during the week then not what's actually been played?

Would have thought this would have made sense if amount of gamers where involved too.

How is MW3 liking that #14 position! It's even lower than BF3 for now.

Well done world.

[Prototype 2] is so fun and good game (not because of easy game and achievements is because of gameplay show much deeper then first series). I almost loved this game much much more then first series. :):)

@8 Would people like you kindly fuck off? If you don't like COD, just ignore it.

@13 Don't feed the trolls. It's why they are trolls in the first place.
