Earlier tonight, we told you that Britain had overtaken Japan to become the world's second-biggest games market. Last week's sales charts are as good an example as any as to why.


Look at those top 5 games. Just look at them. Then, if you've a few more seconds to spare, look at, oh, #17 & #18. Or #22 & #24. They're old games. Some of them months old, some of them years old. In the olden days, games that are months old stop selling.

But these new days? They keep selling. And selling. And selling. Add those titles to the FIFAs and Call of Dutys of the world and you get an idea why/how so many damn video games are being sold in Britain.
