The month of March for the UK's video game retail market wasn't so bad thanks to Square Enix's Tomb Raider and 2K Games' BioShock Infinite. While it was 1.5% down from 2012, it beat January and February.

In fact revenue was up 4.2% this March compared to last year's, jumping from £67.7m to £70.6m. Tomb Raider was the lead runner selling more than double of BioShock Infinite.

In third position was Gears of War: Judgment, followed by FIFA 13 and then SimCity. There were notable sale declines during January and February for UK retailers.

Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider launched March 5th whereas Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite debuted March 26th, which goes to show it sold an awful lot to get second place in the chart for March.

Seems everyone wanted the goodies that came with LE pre-orders for "BioShock Infinite".
