BioShock Infinite maintains its lofty altitude in the UK all format chart as it keeps 1st place, while Tomb Raider keeps on surviving 2nd. Trion Worlds' Defiance, a TV series-based IP, has entered 3rd.

FIFA 13 is still dribbling 4th while Need for Speed: Most Wanted has climbed back into the top 10. Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption: GOTY launched 40th. Not bad for Trion's Defiance.

It's one of those transmedia IPs. Defiance is set to air on TV soon as it begins its first season. The show and the MMO are closely tied to one another, affecting each other's events.

Below is the UK all format chart top 20 for the week ending April 6th.

Yay for Infinite! But, how the hell did Sniper: GW2 get on that list? :D

Wishful thinking and gobs of hope that the game isn't a repeat of the original (disaster as it was and still is). See "FIFA 13" is still up there, despite it basically being a tweaked "FIFA 12".

I've read some reviews. Don't get your hopes up too high.
Argh. FIFA. Good God. The same goes for Tiger Woods. I can't stand sports games.
