UK Charts: Portal 2 wins, SOCOM 4 ... not so much?

Last week was one of the biggest release weeks of the year so far, with Portal 2, Mortal Kombat and SOCOM 4 all hitting the streets. Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat have both managed to succeed, capturing the first and second chart sports respectively. 

Unfortunately, SOCOM 4 has not fared so well, failing to crack the top twenty at all. 

This is unusual for a PS3 exclusive in the UK, with such games often making it into the top five. It seems highly probable that the PlayStation Network outage has had a dire effect on the game's sales. Online is SOCOM 4's biggest selling point, so it's hardly surprising consumers may be waiting before picking it up. 

Whether sales do indeed spike when Sony gets its act together remains to be seen, but I have a feeling Zipper just got screwed hard by the recent shenanigans. 

In any case, check out the full chart below.
