'Crysis 3' fails to match 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' in week one sales

Crysis 3 has knocked Aliens: Colonial Marines off the top of the all-format chart, despite selling fewer units in its first week on sale.

Aliens: Colonial Marines remains the biggest-selling launch of the year, but drops down to five, behind newcomers Crysis 3 and Metal Gear Rising, and beneath FIFA 13 and Black Ops 2.
