Street Fighter V arrives at #2 in the UK chart. A highly respectable position, but it still fell short of bettering Street Fighter IVâ€™s launch week sales.
We should note, however, that SFIV launched on three formats compared to SFVâ€™s two (PS4 and PC).
Capcom’s latest brawler has been met by critical acclaim. Fans on the other hand have been left feeling short-changed due to the lack of modes, features and stability of the online servers.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III remains on top for an 11th week, breaking a record in the process – no other CoD has claimed as many no.1s 2009â€™s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 held the previous streak, with 9 consecutive weeks.
Incidentally, Who Wants to be a Millionaire retains the record for longest run at number one – a resounding 18 weeks back in the space year 2000.
FIFA 16 is at #3, LEGO Marvelâ€™s Avengers falls to #4 while GTA V drops one place to #5.
At #6 itâ€™s Star Wars Battlefront – which is still yet to leave the top ten – followed by Fallout 4, Rainbow Six: Siege, newcomer Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, and finally Minecraft: Story Mode at #10.
Assassinâ€™s Creed Syndicate and Just Cause 3 meanwhile both departed the top ten this week.
After arriving at #19, Assassinâ€™s Creed Chronicles drops to #40 on its second week of release. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is on a swift descent too, dropping from #15 to #34. Dying Light: The Following also clings to the lower echelons of the chart, going from #28 to #35.
