UK chart almost sees an entirely new top five

After several quiet weeks (Rare Replay was the last significant release) we finally have a UK chart worth reporting on, featuring five new arrivals in the top ten alone.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition takes the top spot, followed by the very well-received PS4-exclusive Until Dawn at #2. Disney Infinity 3.0 enters at #3 while Madden NFL 16 makes its mark at #4.

At #5 we find last week’s chart topper – LEGO Jurassic World. At #6 it’s GTA V, while position #7 is filled by another new arrival – Dishonored: Definitive Edition. We’re surprised by this as the digital version has a huge discount for those who own it on PS3/360, both of which have been free recently.

Minecraft: PlayStation Edition, Batman: Arkham Knight and Minecraft: Xbox Edition round off the top ten.

To make way for the new releases Battlefield: Hardline, FIFA 15, Dying Light and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare all depart the top ten. The Elder Scrolls Online is on a downer too, dropping from #9 to #22.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 was the only other new entry, sailing in at #27. This means Wii U-exclusive Devil’s Third doesn’t get a look in. The shoddy hack ‘n’ slasher has to settle for a lowly #8 in the Wii U chart.
