Never underestimate the popularity of gritty first-person shooters – Metro Redux is the UKâ€™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 Silverâ€™s first UK number one since Saints Row IV. Itâ€™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 UKâ€™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 itâ€™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, thatâ€™s just about all the â€˜actionâ€™ 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 NISâ€™s latest may have made an appearance in the top 40 given the popularity of JRPGs on Sonyâ€™s handheld, but alas, it wasnâ€™t to be.
