Blizzard storms UK top ten

Like a child with mere days left before the start of school, this week’s UK chart clearly doesn’t know what to do with itself.

Blizzard’s Overwatch has re-claimed the top spot, making it four non-consecutive weeks for the colourful shooter. This is actually a record for a Blizzard release.


Chart-Track puts the sales surge down to price cuts – most retailers are selling it for £30 currently.

With a free-to-play weekend due to commence later this week on both PS4 and Xbox One, Overwatch may very well take the top spot again next Monday.

Previous number one Deus Ex: Mankind Divided falls to #2 with sales down 72%.

At #3 it’s another Blizzard release – the retail version of World of Warcraft: Legion. Although it was the best-selling new release of last week, sales were down over Warlords of Draenor.

F1 2016 makes a pit stop at #4, while Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End rises to #5.

GTA V is at #6, No Man’s Sky at #7, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens drops to #8 while Rocket League re-enters the top ten at #9.

At #10 it’s the heavily discounted Disney Infinity 3.0, up all the way from #30. Our local Tesco cleared out their stock last week, with figures at around £2.50 each.

The Witcher III: GOTY Edition was the second highest new entry at #17, followed by God Eater 2: Rage Burst at #21.

Somewhat predictably, Metroid Prime: Federation Force failed to make the top 40.
