DmC: Devil May Cry
This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written Monday, January 21, 2013 By Lee Bradley
View author's profile

DMC: Devil May Cry has combo’d its way to number one in the UK Xbox 360 retail charts, dethroning Far Cry 3 and holding off both FIFA 13 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Indeed, such has been DMC’s success that it represents Capcom’s first all-format number one since Resident Evil 5 in 2009. Resident Evil 6 could only manage the second spot.

Not a bad end to a story that has seen all kinds of crap thrown at developer Ninja Theory, following the game’s announcement, the negative reaction to Dante’s new look, and a general feeling of ill will from many in the Devil May Cry fanbase.

Glad to see the game is selling well. Easily the best game of its genre since Bayonetta (and probably my favourite DmC thanks to it's improved story telling and other improvements).

Where's #20?

And Halo 4 took a bit of a dive...it'a the most radical placement change in the charts other than NBA 2K13's boost forwad.

I pray that Ninja Theory work on a few sequels to the new DmC, it would be such a massive shame if they stop due to the people crying about Dante looking different, chances are they could work around that because -SPOILERS FOLLOW- at the end as you all know, his hair turns white, maybe he could grow it long in the next games? I really want Ninja Theory to continue with it :'(

Worth noting that DmC launch sales are only a third of those that Devil May Cry 4 got within it launch. Surprising seeing as DmC was on sale for 3 days longer being released on a Tuesday compared to a Friday.
Wonder how much its to do with the market here where most new games drop to half price within 3 weeks and people are holding of til then

surprised it still made number one, the gameplay looks good but they have still ruined the devil may cry story and it looks nothing like the prequel it is supposed to be.

i for one wont buy it, devil may cry 4 was amazing, by not continuing they are jsut stupid, danta nad nero as a team was immense, and the bloody palace was so wicked, i see the need for revamping shit games, but revamping great games?

should of spent the time they wasted on resident evil shite, i mean six

Great game. Glad this is selling so well. Cannot wait preorder DLC arrive in few weeks time. DLC with new achievements will be lovely. I will support this game for DLC with achievements and few non achievement DLCs. Look forward to DLCs.

Recommend game and one of best hack and slash games out there also DmC is 3rd best DmC in series. Devil May Cry (original series), Devil May Cry 3 (original series) and DmC: Devil May Cry (reboot series). All those is my favourite DmC games. :)

So, it's going around that DmC is only selling just over a third of what DMC 4 launch did. Even with the little competition there is right now. Once competition starts releasing, expect to see this sell even less than it is now.

We'll see if that's true or not, but i'd call that a battle won, with the war being over soon. So much for widening the audience.

How is this not a bad end to a story? Capcom rebooted a great franchise and shit on the customers to grab the casual crowd. I know we should expect that in this day and age but it still breaks my heart. I just finished playing the dmc hd collection and loved it. If this game does well there will never be a dmc 5.

Every week it pleases me to see Skyrim still on this list. Almost 70 weeks!

Bethesda knows how to please. Bring on Fallout 4!

I'm loving DMC more than the original games I've played. It's storytelling is much improved and the music just fits so well. I don't get all the hate it's receiving.

I feel like everyone hating on this game either haven't played it, or only played the demo. I've been playing dmc since the original first came out, and although i was skeptical of the new dante... This is hands down the best dmc yet. Please make a sequel. NOW!

@22 Not so big a Spoiler



His hair turns white permanently at the end for reasons I will not give. So get over it. It was a joke, nothing more, it wasn't a FU to the fans.
