'007 Legends' enters UK charts, quickly slides out of Top 20

12-Nov-2012 • Gaming

The new James Bond videogame '007 Legends' had a satisfactory entry in the the UK sales charts, but has quickly descended out of the Top 20.

'007 Legends' entered the UK Top 40 Entertainment Software (all prices) chart on week ending October 20th at #12. Other new entries that week included "Doom 3: BFG Edition" at #5, and
"Skylanders Giants", also from Activision, at #2.

The split between Xbox 360 and PS3 sales were 51/49 in favour of the Microsoft platform.

A week later, "007 Legends" slipped two places to #14, and then left the top 20 in its third week of release, slumping to #24. The market for first person shooters will be encompassed by the release of the new "Call of Duty" title this week.

Unfortunately, official sales charts are not publicly released in the USA, but industry tracker VG Chartz estimates the game has sold 13,286 units in 3 weeks, which would make it the poorest performing 007 title in recent years.
