No chart entry in sight

Last Friday saw just one major new release hit UK shelves: Nintendo's Steel Diver launched on 3DS, but failed to register as even a blip on the official Top 40 chart.

The full top 40 list for all-formats only contains LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars and Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D as 3DS games, where they are combined with sales on 360, PS3, PC and PSP, of course. There isn't a single 3DS-only game in the top 40 currently, though that will likely change with the upcoming release of Dead or Alive: Dimensions on 20th May, and we'd be very surprised not to see Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D land near the top come its 17th June release.
