UK chart sees four new arrivals

Last week was surprisingly busy for new releases, and as such this week’s UK top 40 is a hub of activity.

Backed by a steady string of glowing reviews, and with the movie release just days away, Ratchet & Clank on PS4 takes the chart’s top spot. It’s the first in the series to bag the elusive number one slot, Chart Track informs. The PS2 original entered at #15 in 2002, while the biggest seller at launch – until today – was 2009’s A Crack in Time.


Former chart topper Dark Souls III drops to #2 with sales down 80%. Star Wars Battlefront on the other hand rises from #12 to #3 with sales up 177%. We can attribute this to a certain DVD/Blu-ray release.

Tom Clancy’s The Division falls to #4 while EA Sports UFC 2 moves down two places to #5.

At #6 it’s another new entry – Nintendo’s Star Fox Zero. New Super Mario Bros. U + Super Luigi is still in the chart too, albeit currently at #29.

At #7 it’s Black Ops III, followed by FIFA 16, Quantum Break and DiRT Rally to form the UK’s top ten.

As the headline indicates, there are another two new arrivals in the top 40. Namely, Alternative’s Rugby Challenge 3 at #13, with the PS4 version proving the most popular, and Konami’s UEFA Euro 2016 Pro Evolution Soccer at #23.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Rugby Challenge 3 also graced the respective individual format charts at #8 and #7.

Japanese tower defence curio Aegis of Earth: Protonovous Assault meanwhile made #15 in the PS3 chart and #5 in the PS Vita top 20.
