Saints Row IV is No.1 for a third time

Yes, Deep Silver’s Saints Row IV is the UK No.1 for the third week in a row, but let’s give the first two paragraphs to Farming Simulator 2013.

Another Deep Silver title, the unlikely chart challenger made its Xbox 360 and PS3 debut last week and claims a thoroughly wonderful No.10 on its charts debut. Bravo.

Nestled in behind Saints Row IV is Sega’s Rome: Total War II which debuts at No.2 in the UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40, bettering the week one sales of its predecessor by 4,000 units.

Blizzard’s now console-friendly Diablo III re-enters the listings in third. Sony’s Vita exclusive Killzone Mercenary debuts at No.8.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition slips to sixth, its lowest position since launch.
