F1 2015 overtakes Batman

Codemasters’ F1 2015 is the UK’s new number one, dislodging Batman: Arkham Knight from the top spot.

The only thing more desirable to drive than the Batmobile is a Formula One car, it would seem.

Launch sales were up 367% over the last-gen only F1 2014. It’s also the first in the series to become number one since F1 2010.

Batman: Arkham Knight falls to #2 with sales down 54%. LEGO Jurassic World – now at #3 – sees a dip in sales too, down by 28%.

The Elder Scrolls Online drops one position to #4 while GTA V remains at #5 for another week.

Aside F1 2015 there were no other new entries this week.

Notable top 40 fallers however include Yoshi’s Woolly World – down from #6 to #18 – and MotoGP 15 which drops from #18 to #31 on its second week of release.

Disney Infinity 2.0 on other hand is on the rise due to price drops, up from #26 to #13.
