Second time unlucky for Gravity Rush

Despite arriving to decent reviews in 2012, Gravity Rush on PS Vita didn’t perform too well in the UK chart. To wit: it entered at #11 at launch and then swiftly left the top 40 the following week.

Four years later, PS4 revamp Gravity Rush Remastered has struggled to even break the top 20 – it’s in at a lowly #34 this week, and only made #17 in the PS4 chart.

Anime tie-ins Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 and Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth soared in comparison – Naruto entered at #3 while Digimon Story debuted at #11. Both are published by Bandai-Namco, who we imagine are quite pleased with those placings.

The incredibly well-received XCOM 2 meanwhile made #20 in its physical form.

Arguably though, the biggest story in chart land is Call of Duty: Black Ops III bagging a 9th number one, dethroning previous chart topper LEGO Marvel’s Avengers in the process. The superhero blockbuster is now at #2.

FIFA 16 moves down one position to #4, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege falls to #5 while GTA V holds onto #6.

At #7 it’s Just Cause 3 and then at #8 we find Star Wars Battlefront, which appears to be making a slow descent out the top ten.

At #9, all the way up from #20 due to price cuts, it’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Minecraft: Story Mode then rounds off this week’s top ten.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is the week’s biggest riser – up all the way from #40 to #16 – while Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the biggest faller, dropping from #8 to #30.

3DS-exclusive Final Fantasy Explorers has had a rough time too, departing the top 40 after just one week.
