Chart success for LEGO Dimensions and NBA 2K16

There’s no doubting that the recession is over – an £89.99 videogame has managed to enter at #2 in the UK chart. That game, of course, is LEGO Dimensions.

Chart-Track reports that it managed to beat week one sales of both Disney Infinity 3.0 and Skylanders SuperChargers. The individual format chart reveals that the Xbox 360 version of LEGO Dimensions was the biggest selling. Statistically speaking, the Wii U version was the worst selling.

FIFA 16 holds onto the top spot for a second week. NBA 2K16 – which arrived at #3 – has had a good week too. A very good week in fact – sales were up 53% over last year, making it the fastest seller in the series to date.

Destiny: The Taken King and Forza Motorsport 6 move down to fill spaces #4 and #5, and then at #6 it’s another new entry – Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.

The rest of the UK top ten then comprises of MGSV: The Phantom Pain, Skylanders SuperChargers, GTA V and Mad Max.

Incidentally, PES 2016, LEGO Jurassic World and Call of Duty: Ghosts all depart the top ten this week.

The only other top 40 new entry is Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, scraping in at #12. Are you paying attention EA? There’s clearly demand for a new decent skateboarding game.
