Blizzard’s sensational Overwatch claims the UK chart’s top spot this week, becoming the developer’s fastest selling console release to date.

Chart-Track informs sales were spilt 47% on PS4, 36% on Xbox One and 18% on PC (physical only).


Overwatch’s arrival pushes Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End down to #2. DOOM – which we reviewed last week – falls one place also, as does fellow recent release Homefront: The Revolution.

GAME has reduced Homefront to £34.99, which may explain why it hasn’t dropped significantly during its second week of release – the ragtag shooter currently has a Metacritic of a mere 49%.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is at #5 and then at #6 – up six places due to hardware bundling – it’s Ratchet & Clank.

FIFA 16 moves up a few places to #7, Tom Clancy’s The Division falls to #8, Total War: Warhammer enters at #9 and then at #10 it’s GTA V.

TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan is the only other top 40 new arrival, making its mark at #18. The PS4 version appears to be the biggest selling, and by some margin.

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Conquest both remain in the top 40 meanwhile, now at #23 and #24 respectively. Yo-Kai Watch is clinging in there too, albeit at #40.

We’re also going to give Battleborn a shout out – sales have improved a tad since the price drop, helping the Borderlands alike rise from #27 to #20.
