Borderlands 2 nabs biggest U.K. launch of 2012 so far

Borderlands 2 has become the U.K.'s biggest-selling videogame launch of 2012 so far, eclipsing Mass Effect 3's record.

Released in Blighty last Friday, the Gearbox-developed sequel topped Mass Effect 3’s record by over 4,000 copies. Furthermore, it also bested its predecessor’s effort by 4 to 1, which reached no.7 back in 2009.

In terms of platforms, the Xbox 360 took the lion’s share of Borderlands 2 sales, accounting for a massive 71 per cent of all sales. PlayStation 3 managed 22 per cent, and the PC version seven per cent (note the latter does not include digital sales).
