Mario & Sonic Sales Nearly Double in a Week

Going for gold

SEGA's sporting symposium just enjoyed a sales surge in the UK charts, with a whopping week-on-week sales increase of 94%.

Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games on 3DS was released on 10th February, resulting in a 145% increase to send the title up from 31st to 10th position. Now sales of the 3DS version and discounts of Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games on Wii have combined to get the title to its highest position yet, just one shot shy of the podium in fourth place.

Surprisingly, last week's big Nintendo release Tekken 3D Prime Edition is nowhere to be seen in the UK top 40, perhaps a result of GAME not stocking Namco's fighter.
