BioShock Infinite
This Week's UK Top 20 Xbox 360 Charts

Thanks to a combination of the bank holiday in the UK and the jetlag in my brain, this week's UK retail chart is a little later than usual. You'll get no prizes if you guessed the number one ahead of time though.

That's right, BioShock Infinite has skyhooked into the top spot, shifting 9,000 more units at launch than its predecessor BioShock 2. It slots in behind Tomb Raider as the second largest launch of 2013 and bounces last week's number one, Gears of War: Judgment to second place in the charts.

Full rundown below.

Kudos to Infinite and Irrational.

Infinite is arguably the greatest game I've played this gen. Columbia is one of the most alive worlds I've seen in a videogame. And the story still managed to blow my brains out, even though I was suspecting something given that Irrational was at the helm again. I hope more people continue playing great games like Infinite, it deserves all the attention it gets and so much more.

But now, what games do I play from here on? Infinite has sucked my desire to play anything else. Which is both good and bad. I've played something I considered to be the perfect game, now everything else is trash in my eyes.

Not sure why Halo 4 has moved up to 6th but bloody well done, it deserves it.

@#2: The obvious solution to your dilemma is to play the worst game ever made, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing. That way, everything else will look good in your eyes.

Good to see that Infinite is getting so much attention. It's not a question of if for me; it's a question of when.

So glad that Infinite is number 1. Absolutely stellar game and proof that you don't need to shoehorn multiplayer into everything to sell units. If critics need proof that games can achieve the storytelling heights of movies and TV look no further than this one. Long live single player games, long live Irrational. As foolish as it may be to drop 1600 msp on unknown dlc, I'm going to do it anyway. These guys deserve every penny!

Infinite is my new favorite game of all time and Bioshock one has been demoted to my second favorite game of all time but and although I agree with you #6 if Skyrim hasn't showed people that games don't need multiplayer after 73 weeks I honestly don't know if any game can show people that multiplayer isn't needed but bioshock is the game to do it if the ever was one. Not that I don't mind multiplayer and honestly the multiplayer in bioshock two has been and still is the best multiplayer experience I've ever had.

Some serious haters here. This game is amazing and deserve all the great reviews it's getting. Thanks again for a great game, Irrational.

I thought everyone hated Aliens, but it's still on the charts. Has the advertising worked wonders, or have all those patches actually fixed the game?

Kudos to Bioshock. What I've been told ( I havn't played it myself) it's a brilliant game.

I'm glad Army of Two is in the top 5. Very over the top, explosive goodness.

Come on Skyrim, let's see you hit 100 weeks.

Skyrim needs another DLC soon, that should bring it up again hopefully to hit 100 weeks.

I wasn't thinking about getting the new bioshock whatsoever but after reading multiple reviews and a friend who said that it's 'better than everything' i'm rather tempted :P
