SAO and Legend of Heroes can't knock Minecraft off UK chart

One of two things is going on in the UK retail chart this week.

Either parents are buying Minecraft on Vita as a Christmas present in decent numbers, or physical sales are dying off fast. That's as the Mojang game fights off yet more new releases in the form SAO Hollow Realization and Legend of Heroes TOCS2, or perhaps people just don't like really long names for video games? SAO failes to make the PS4 top 20, while LoH sneaks into the PS3 top 10.

1 = Minecraft Mojang
2 N Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Bandai
3 N Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II Falcom
4 + Lego Marvel Avengers Warner
5 - World of Final Fantasy Square
6 - Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens Warner
7 - Valkyrie Drive PQube
8 - Root Letter PQube
9 + Killzone Mercenary Sony
10 Lego Jurassic World Warner

Over on Amazon UK, of the new releases, World of Final Fantasy is still above the two newer entries in what's quite a lively top 20, interspersed with plenty of bargains. Sony's Top Sellers page on the Vita store doesn't seem to have updated for a couple of weeks, perhaps they've just totally given up now. All that is meaningless without supporting numbers, but hey!
