UK chart – top three unchanged

We were slightly worried that Dead Island Definitive Edition was going to claim the UK chart’s top spot this week, dislodging Overwatch in the process.

Pleasingly, this isn’t the case – Overwatch remains on top for a second week running.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End remains at #2, while DOOM stays put at #3.

At #4 it’s FIFA 16, up from #7. This appears to be due to price cuts – we recently spotted the Xbox 360 version for a mere £14.99 at Sainsbury’s.

The Dead Island double pack has to make do with #5. Incidentally, Tesco has taken the liberty of censoring the box art. We wonder if this was a pre-emptive internal decision or due to customer complaints.

GTA V moves up to #6, Ratchet & Clank shifts to #7, Tom Clancy’s The Division holds onto #8 while Call of Duty: Black Ops III falls to #9.

Then at #10 it’s Homefront: The Revolution. Three weeks in top ten appears to be all the ragtag shooter is going to get.

Just a single other new release made the top 40 – One Piece: Burning Road at a lowly #37.

Recapping on other recent releases, TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan drops to #30 during its second week on sale while Battleborn falls from #20 to #29.

The Gearbox developed shooter can already be found for £20 online.
