Crash Bandicoot’s seven week stay at the top of the UK chart has come to end, dethroned by Crash’s original creators – Naughty Dog.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy takes no.1, becoming the 6th PS4 exclusive to take the top spot this year. Gamesindustry.biz reports sales of The Lost Legacy were “slightly less than half” of what Uncharted 4 managed at launch.

As always though, digital sales aren’t included. The less-than-full-price RRP may have prompted many to make a purchase through PSN.

Gamesindustry.biz also states that sales of Codemasters’ F1 2017 – which debuts at #2 – were down from F1 2016’s launch. With review scores generally higher than last year’s iteration, it may eventually surpass it in the long run.

Activision’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy falls to #3.

Then at #4 it’s fellow annual sporting update Madden NFL 18.

The remaining top ten positions comprise of familiar faces. In order, GTA V, Fallout 4, Dishonored 2, Forza Horizon 3, Rainbow Six: Siege, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at #10.

Team 17’s The Escapists 2 entered at respectable #12, with sales up a whopping 378% over the original. Could be a steady seller, this.

Agents of Mayhem follows behind at #13, down from #4. Sales only fell by 28% – as second-week sales go, it could have been far worse. GAME’s price drop to £34.99 may have helped.

Elsewhere in the top 40, Minecraft: Story Mode is back at #28 thanks to the arrival of last week’s Switch version, while Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition helps the evergreen shooter bounce back at #24.
