Bloodborne, Battlefield: Hardline and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection have been battling it out for the UK chart top spot. Chart-Track reports that Bloodborne â€œalmostâ€ became the fourth new IP to enter at no.1 this year, but fell short of the 22,500 copies required to dislodge Battlefield: Hardline.
The PlayStation 4-exclusive settles for #2 while Borderlands: The Handsome Collection arrived at #3. The individual format chart reveals the Xbox One version of Borderlands proved the most popular.
GTA V and FIFA 15 finish off the top five while Far Cry 4 and The Order: 1886 re-appear in the bottom half of the top ten – and #8 and #10 – thanks to price cuts. Sales of Far Cry 4 were in fact up a remarkable 233% last week.
Mario Party 10, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Resident Evil Revelations 2 meanwhile all depart the top ten after just one week, falling to #11, #12 and #14 respectively.
The only other new arrival in the top 40 was PS4 motorbike sim Ride, which entered at #25. It appears that the Xbox versions were hit with a last minute delay and are now due out 10th April.
