Update: Activision has dropped us a line informing that Skylanders Trap Team did in fact make #7 in the UK top 40. Chart-Track are aware that their data is currently incorrect and will be issuing a revised UK top 40 tomorrow morning
Original story: This weekâ€™s UK top 40 holds a mild surprise – Skylanders Trap Team failed to make the chart. No doubt itâ€™ll belatedly appear in the run up to Christmas, but given the popularity of the series we thought it would make the top 20 at least.
Skylanders Swap Force – last yearâ€™s entry – managed to make #3, so itâ€™s certainly a little odd. Trap Team did however manage to break the majority of the individual format charts, entering at #1 in the Wii chart and #2 in the Wii U chart. The Xbox 360, PS3 and 3DS versions were total no-shows.
Out of last weekâ€™s other new releases Alien: Isolation charts the highest. SEGAâ€™s sci-fi survival horror made #2 with FIFA 15 holding the top spot. As most could have predicted, itâ€™s was the PS4 version of Isolation that shifted the most copies.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor falls to #3 while Forza Horizon 2 also dropped one place. Then at #5 itâ€™s a new entry – Sonyâ€™s DriveClub.
Thatâ€™s soon followed by another new arrival – NBA 2K15 at #7.
The only other new arrival for this week is Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition at a respectable #12.
Over in the single format charts Ubisoft’s Assassinâ€™s Creed: The American Saga bundle enters in both the PS3 and Xbox 360 charts while Japanese curio Akibaâ€™s Trip: Undead and Undressed made #2 in the PS Vita chart.
Then at #11 in the Xbox One chart, game making tool Project Spark makes an appearance. Seeing that a stripped down version is available as a free download, Microsoft shouldnâ€™t be too alarmed about it not making the top 40.
