The UK chart has been pretty stagnant lately. Not this week however – there are three new entries, including a new number one, and the top ten has seen an unexpected shuffle.

That new number one is The Sims 4, becoming EA’s fourth #1 of the year. It’s also the first PC game to take the top spot since Guild Wars 2, just over two years ago. Of course, Chart-Track doesn’t take digital PC sales into account.

At #2 it’s Watch_Dogs, all the way up from #9. The individual format chart reveals that a sales surge for the Xbox 360/PS3 versions is the reason. Presumably one of the major retailers reduced them in price last week.

Metro Redux – last week’s chart topper – falls to #3, The Last of Us Remastered drops once place to #4 and then at #5 it’s Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition.

The next new entry is the PS Vita’s Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair at #29. We had a feeling this one may do surprisingly well. It’s also #1 in the PS Vita chart.

Then at #34 Warriors Orcochi 3: Ultimate makes an arrival.

We could see a few ‘older’ PS4/Xbox One titles re-appear in the chart next week – Destiny is going to shift a lot of shiny new systems, we’d wager.
