Weekly sales charts for the UK have revealed that Rayman Legends has debuted in the 14th spot for the chart, making it the highest selling version of the game for this week. Both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 version of the game sit at 18 and 20 respectively. With sales of all three platforms combined, this puts Rayman Legends in the number 6 spot for top game releases in the UK this week.
This is great news for detractors from the Wii U that seem to think if a game is offered in a multi-platform release, the Wii U version will always do worse. As I predicted in a previous GameFans podcast, Rayman Legends has done better on Wii U, where the title was originally an exclusive. Hopefully we’ll see similar numbers here in North America when the title is released later this month.
