Aliens: Colonial Marines Grabs Top Sales Spot in UK

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:

    1. Aliens: Colonial Marines
    2. Dead Space 3
    3. FIFA 13
    4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
    5. Far Cry 3
    6. Assassin’s Creed 3
    7. Need for Speed Most Wanted
    8. Just Dance 4
    9. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
    10. 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.
