Never underestimate the popularity of gritty first-person shooters – Metro Redux is the UK’s new number one, dethroning Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition after just one week at the top spot.
The two-strong shooter collection is Deep Silver’s first UK number one since Saints Row IV. It’s also #1 in the Xbox One chart and #2 in the PlayStation 4 chart under The Last of Us Remastered. Despite this however, the PS4 version of Metro Redux still performed the best at retail last week.
The rest of the UK’s top five looks like this – Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition at #2 followed by The Last of Us Remastered, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare and Call of Duty: Ghosts.
At #6 it’s a new entry – Madden NFL 15. Again, the individual formats chart reveals that the PS4 version was the biggest selling during its launch weekend.
Aside FIFA 14 making a rapid descent down the chart, currently sitting at #18, that’s just about all the â€˜action’ the top 40 holds for us this week.
Over in the single format charts, GTA V has shot back to #1 in both the Xbox 360 and PS3 charts – presumably due to price drops – while new release Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited takes #1 in the PS Vita top ten.
We thought NIS’s latest may have made an appearance in the top 40 given the popularity of JRPGs on Sony’s handheld, but alas, it wasn’t to be.
