If we were gambling men we would have put money on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided dethroning No Man’s Sky from the top of the chart.

This week’s top 40 proves why we shouldn’t even step foot in a bookies – Codemasters’ F1 2016 has taken pole position, knocking No Man’s Sky to #2 after just one week.

Sales of Hello Games’ space tourist sim were down a whopping 81% from last week, Chart-Track reports.

Despite gaining decent reviews, F1 2016 isn’t off to the greatest of starts either with sales down 32% over what F1 2015 gained at launch.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens saw a small boost meanwhile, rising it up to #3.

Overwatch dropped to #4 and then at #5 it’s good old GTA V.

Rocket League and FIFA 16 held onto #6 and #7 respectively.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End fell to #8, DOOM moved one place to #9 and for a second week Minecraft: Xbox Edition rounds off the top ten.

The only other occurrence of note was Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst re-entering the top 40 at #27, thanks to price cuts.
