Blockbuster titles to thank for surge in sales

UK game retail market sees sales boost thanks to BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider

Game retailers experienced their busiest weekend of the year over the Easter period.

Blockbuster titles BioShock: Infinite and Tomb Raider were to thank for the surge, which saw 743,045 units sold over the weekend, marking a 47 per cent increase in boxed video games on the previous week, reports MCV.

It was also one of the busiest release weeks for some time, with Luigi’s Mansion 2 (No.5 in the charts), Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel (No.6), Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 (No.8), LEGO City Undercover (No.13) and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (No.31) joining the chart topper BioShock: Infinite on the shelves.

BioShock: Infinite has become the fastest selling game in the series to date. Read more about the game here.
