Despite being almost universally panned by critics and knocked by almost every gamer who’s had a chance to play it, Aliens: Colonial Marines was the best selling game in the UK last week.
Let that sink in. Aliens: Colonial Marines, one of the worst triple A titles to ever release, beat out games like Dead Space 3. Here’s the full rundown, courtesy of Joystiq.
Top 10 UK Software Sales (All Formats); week ending February 16:
- Aliens: Colonial Marines
- Dead Space 3
- FIFA 13
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
- Far Cry 3
- Assassin’s Creed 3
- Need for Speed Most Wanted
- Just Dance 4
- Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
- Halo 4
And they say that bad games don’t sell. The Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines has apparently been delayed indefinitely. You can, however, pick up the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the whenever you want.
Why? I’m not sure.
