Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
This Week's UK Top 20 Xbox 360 Charts
Written By
View author's profile

Well would you look at that. The retail version of Minecraft is the best-selling Xbox 360 game in UK stores, despite a 54 per cent drop in sales week-on-week and the fact that everyone must own it by now.

Indeed, such is the strength of the Mojang/4J Studios juggernaut that not even the might of FIFA 13, Far Cry 3, Assassin’s Creed III or Tomb Raider could topple it. It’s seriously impressive.

For those wondering, Minecraft has not previously popped up in Chart Track’s UK charts due to some weird thing about not being a “full-priced” title.

What you see below, meanwhile, is the Top 20 chart of all retail games regardless of price. We'll be using this chart from here on in as we feel it is better reflective of what's hot and what's not.

Damn. GTA looks like it is coming to the top of the list again. All the GTA5 news must be getting people in the mood.
It's too bad there are so many modders in GTA4 multiplayer. Makes the game so frustrating sometimes.

Even Red Dead went up like 6 games up the list.

#6 I not play Minecraft and never will since it is not my taste of game. But I got some friends of 100 friends that playing Minecraft with their friends so much and bulid so many things they enjoyed. It is seem game is very popluar because of people who enjoyed bulid things and put up youtube.com to show off what they create, show other friends over photos it. It is fun and there lots more reasons why game is really fun for them (of course so many people in world who loved create things and share with friends through Minecraft)

Huge fan of Minecraft but it's definitely not for everyone. As a kid who grew up playing with Legos all the time, it was perfect for me. Sometimes I go to play it and don't have any ideas so it can get boring quick. But it's a great game only limited by your imagination.

@8

Fair enough, I like to think I have some imagination, but without any basic starting point I come up blank.

Not shocked about Minecraft being at number one. I love it and have poured many hours into it. Kinda like Marmite. You either love it or hate it. Got the achievements inside a week and just carry on playing it. No end to the fun. Sometimes I have to crowbar the missus off the Xbox just to play something, but more often than not I play it instead with her. Just easier.

Wow what a varied list. I'm surprised that despite all the players I run into while playing, Defiance isn't on the list.
Glad to see that Deadpool & Injustice are still holding strong as well.
Aliens? Yeah despite it being bashed & discreditted, alot of players still play it & enjoy it.
Proof is in the list.
