UK top 20 sees seven new arrivals

Last week’s slew of big name releases has woken the UK chart from its summer slumber, with seven new big hitters in the top 20 alone.

Like BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite before it, BioShock: The Collection has topped the UK top 40. It also takes #1 in the Xbox One chart, beating console exclusive ReCore.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 enters at #2, although sales were down 3% from PES 2016. This year the current-gen versions made up a resounding 93% of sales. That didn’t stop it topping both the PS3 and Xbox 360 charts, though.

Fellow sports sim NBA 2K17 made #3 – the last position as last year.

Overwatch
– last week’s chart topper – fell to #4, and then at #5 it’s ReCore.

Rocket League, Uncharted 4, GTA V, No Man’s Sky and Deus Ex occupied positions #6-#10, while F1 2016, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Call of Duty: Black Ops III departed the top ten.

Dragon Quest VII: The Forgotten Past is the next highest new entry, clocking in at #12. NHL 17 slid in at #15 while Batman: The Telltale Series made #19.

Over in the PS Vita chart meanwhile Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness takes the top spot while MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death made #2.
