UK chart: DmC Devil May Cry launch sales are just a third of Devil May Cry 4's

But still horns its way to top spot.

Launch week sales for DmC Devil May Cry were just a third of the amount that previous entry Devil May Cry 4 sold during its launch week in 2008.

That's despite DmC having an extra three days on sale - it launched last Tuesday, compared to Devil May Cry 4's Friday launch, the traditional day that new video games hit shop shelves in the UK.

DmC still made the top spot, however - the first time Capcom has gained pole position since the launch of Resident Evil 5, almost four years ago.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 stormed third, Far Cry 3 was fourth and Need for Speed: Most Wanted was fifth.

There was little change in the rest of the chart, and no other new entries. It was another week without any Wii U or Vita exclusives in the top 40.
