VideoGamer.com Analysis

Given that Lightning Returns is sure to be heavily front-loaded, a No.3 debut has to go down as a failure for the third game in the series.

The LEGO Movie has it all to do next week to hold on to the No.1 spot, with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Rayman Legends (Xbox One, PS4) hitting stores.

I'm actually somewhat surprised that the lego movie videogame, beat out lightning returns so well. I kind of saw the markets that both games appealed, whilst not the same me niche, to be similar sized niches.

Then again, LR:FF13 is the third in a sub series of final fantasy that nobody really likes. Whilst the lego movie videogame, is a movie tie in for the brilliant (and surprisingly heart warming) lego movie.
