Titanfall towers above all

Titanfall has shot straight to the top of the UK chart, dethroning South Park: The Stick of Truth after just one week.

Ubisoft’s colourful RPG now sits at #3, with Dark Souls II entering at #2.

Chart-Track claims Xbox One sales are up 96% thanks to Titanfall, with 70% of those being the Titanfall bundle. EA’s shooter is also the biggest release of the year so far, and also EA’s first #1 – which isn’t FIFA related – since March 2013’s Crysis 3.

The LEGO Movie Videogame and Thief round off this week’s UK top five.

There’s still a good reason for Bandai Namco Games to celebrate – Dark Souls II is #1 in both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 charts.

A waft of mediocre reviews don’t seem to have harmed sales of Yoshi’s New Island – that’s in at a respectable #12.

Chart-Track informs that it’s the third biggest week for a new Yoshi game, behind Yoshi’s Island DS and Yoshi’s Story 64. An N64 game? Crikey – Yoshi really doesn’t get much limelight, does he?

Fellow platformer Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, albeit of the 3D variety, is on the up too, rising from #21 to #19.

Finally, Killzone: Shadow Fall re-entering at #20 would suggest that Sony released a new supply of PlayStation 4 consoles last week. Knack, meanwhile, is nowhere to be seen. Good.
