It appears EA timed the release of Rory McIlroy PGA Tour perfectly – with no other new releases to challenge it, it becomes the first ever golf sim to score a consecutive number one in the UK. That’s according to MCV, anyway. We’re inclined to agree.
LEGO Jurassic World moves up two places to #2, Batman: Arkham Knight remains at #3, F1 2015 drops two positions to #4 and GTA V holds fast at #5.
Positions #6 through to #10 are then made up of all the usual faces, including Minecraft, FIFA 15, The Elder Scrolls Online and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The Witcher III: Wild Hunt and God of War III: Remastered have however both departed the top ten, falling to #12 and #15 respectively.
The only new arrival in all of chart land is Trials Fusion: The Awesome Max Edition at #37. Curiously, it was a non-arrival on launch – this is its second week of release.
Notable top 40 risers for this week include Battlefield: Hardline – up all the way from #31 to #13 – and LittleBigPlanet 3, up from #36 to #22. This is likely down to hefty price cuts – Amazon, among various supermarkets, have cut Hardline to £24. LBP3 meanwhile is currently a bargain priced £14.99 at Sainsbury’s.
