UK Software Sales Monitor: Market makes £13.7m

The UK games market slipped slightly this week, down six per cent in value to 13.7m and five per cent in units to 619,538.

It may only be a slight dip, but retail would have been hoping for better – particularly with the release of Driver: San Francisco (debuting at No.2) and Bodycount (which managed 36th place).

As Driver missed out, it meant that it’s a second week at No.1 for Square Enix’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution. And that’s despite the fact the RPG shooter fell 46 per cent in sales.

There’s a number of games out today that will surely impact next week’s Top 40, namely Resistance 3, Dead Island, Star Fox 64 3D and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
