Battlefield: Hardline survives chart struggle

Battlefield: Hardline has snagged a fourth consecutive number one, albeit it by the skin of its teeth – Chart-Track reports just 100 copies were between Hardline and FIFA 15, which moves up to #2 this week.

Sales were down throughout the entire UK top ten with the biggest faller being Bloodborne. The PS4-exclusive goes from #3 to #6 after a 58% drop in sales.

Following behind Hardline and FIFA 15 are GTA V, Far Cry 4 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Then behind Bloodborne at #6 there’s Forza Horzion 2, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and finally Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition at #10.

Forza Horizon 2 and Halo: MMC are both on rise due to a boost in Xbox One bundle sales. This is likely down to the new £299 price tag.

Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin meanwhile departs the top ten after just one week, falling from #8 to #15.

Dying Light also drops out of the top ten for first time since launch.

Due to last week being rather quiet there are no new entries in the top 40. The belated arrival of the Xbox One/Xbox 360 versions of Ride have propelled pQube’s racer up to #18 though. It also enters at #10 in the Xbox 360 chart and #11 in the Xbox One chart.
