Uncharted 4, DOOM, Homefront: The Revolution, Fire Emblem Fates and Valkyria Chronicles Remastered – these are the games the great British public opened their wallets for last week.
The top two positions in the UK top 40 remain unchanged, occupied by Uncharted 4 and DOOM. Sales of Uncharted were down 78% from launch week, reports Chart-Track, while DOOM only saw a 35% decline.
We imagine this is down to word of mouth starting to spread – the lack of pre-launch reviews more than likely prevented some gamers from rushing out to buy DOOM.
At #3 itâ€™s the first of four new arrivals – Koch Mediaâ€™s Homefront: The Revolution. The individual format chart reveals that the PS4 version was the biggest selling.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III drops one position to #4 and then at #5 itâ€™s Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright. Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest meanwhile made #11. We didnâ€™t expect to see such a big difference in sales.
SEGAâ€™s budget priced Valkyria Chronicles Remastered entered at #6, which is mighty encouraging for the franchiseâ€™s future.
Tom Clancyâ€™s The Division drops to #7, GTA V shifts to #8, LEGO Marvelâ€™s Avengers holds onto #9 and then at #10 itâ€™s FIFA 16.
Ratchet & Clank leaves the top ten this week, falling from #4 to #12. Thatâ€™s nothing compared to Far Cry Primal though – Ubisoftâ€™s series spin-off has gone all the way from #6 to #30. We have no idea why.
Battleborn is having a bad week too – itâ€™s now at #27, and thatâ€™s despite a price cut to Â£29.99 at GAME.
