Techland's tropical zombie apocalypse repeats the success of last week's launch...
Dead Island has repeated the success of its debut on the UK charts last week by landing itself on the top spot for a second week running. Incredibly, the game has pulled in more sales in its first fortnight on the market than any other Deep Silver-published title has managed in its lifetime across the UK according to official Chart-Track figures.
Although retail sales for the game have been strong, publicity for it elsewhere has been far from perfect. Techland initially uploaded unfinished Xbox 360 code onto Steam that was then purchased by swathes of PC users shortly after launch, one of whom subsequently came across the term “Feminist Whore” in the game's source code as a power for one of its female characters. Much internet carnage ensued.
Elsewhere across the top 10 it's been a pretty stagnant week. Resistance 3 and Driver San Francisco swapped places at No.3 and No.4 respectively, as did LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean and Rugby World Cup 2011 at No.7 and No.8. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 moved up six places to No.9, and Cars 2 edged back into the sharp end at No.10. All the remaining titles were non-movers:
- Dead Island
- Warhammer 40K: Space Marine
- Resistance 3
- Driver San Francisco
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution
- Zumba Fitness
- LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
- Rugby World Cup 2011
- LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4
- Cars 2
