Second Son shows off its colours

Last week’s trio of big name new releases have all managed to make the UK chart’s top five.

Anticipated PS4-exclusive inFamous: Second Son took the top spot, becoming the first inFamous to do so. It didn’t perform quite as well as launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall though, having to settle with becoming the second biggest selling PS4 title so far.

The previous inFamous games only managed #5 and #4, if you’re curious.

At #2 it’s Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. A quick glance at the individual formats chart reveals it was the PS4 version that shifted the most copies, followed by the Xbox One version.

Titanfall falls to #3 after just one week. The upcoming Xbox 360 release – delayed until 11th April – could however see it go back to number one again.

Then at #4 it’s the last new arrival in top 40 – Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster.

It’s #1 in both the PS3 and PS Vita charts. The PS Vita version has performed incredibly well, in fact – if we turn to the individual chart again, it’s #9 in that chart – once place higher than Dark Souls II on Xbox 360.

This means Yaibia: Ninja Gaiden Z has failed to make the top 40. After getting a critical mauling – including 2/10 from EDGE – this was perhaps to have been expected. It’s in at a lowly #29 in the PlayStation 3 chart and #34 in the Xbox 360 chart, outsold by the likes of Ben 10: Omniverse 2 and Farming Simulator 2013.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight meanwhile made #20 in the PS3 chart.
