For the third week running, The Last of Us has deservedly kept it’s the position at the top of the UK retail chart. I’m expecting it to claim the top spot for another few weeks to come at least. New entries include: Minecraft at #2, Deadpool at #6 and proving that PC retail is not quite dead yet, are The Sims 3: Island Paradise at #5 and Company of Heroes 2 at #10.
It appears 2 million copies is not enough for EA. They’re after more and they’re willing to sacrifice the style of one of their more unique IP’s for the chance to up the sales of the sequel.

So the Australian Ban-Hammer has fallen on Saints Row IV.
A game being refused classification means that it is literally too violent/sexual/etc. for an age rating, so by government standards it should not be seen by anyone.
