Wolfenstein: The New Order – which we reviewed earlier this week – is the UK’s new number one. That may not surprise you – it has been a rather quiet month, at least up until this week – but what may take you by surprise is just how well it has sold.
It’s the second biggest release of the year after Titanfall, accounting for a quarter of all entertainment sales last week.
Chart-Track also reports that it’s the first Wolfenstien take the top spot since the all-format chart begin in 1997. Activision’s Return to Castle Wolfenstein made #11 back in 2001 while Raven’s 2009 rendition settled for #2, behind Wii Sports Resort. So well done Machine Games.
Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition rises up one place to #2 while FIFA 14 falls to #3.
At #4 we find Titanfall, dropping down from #2. 2014 FIFA World Cup holds fast at #5.
There are no other new entries in the top 40, but there are a few new arrivals in the single format charts. F1 2013: Complete Edition makes #16 in the Xbox 360 chart and #17 in the PlayStation 3 chart, while PS3-exclusive JRPG Mugen Souls Z enters at #27.
Then over in the PC budget chart, the pleasingly daft Goat Simulator entered at #12.
