Given the excitement The Last Guardianâ€™s resurrection generated at E3, and the level of anticipation in the run up to release, we expected to arrive a few positions higher than #7 in the UK chart.
Chart-Track notes Shadow of the Colossus entered at #1 in 2006. It launched at a far quieter time of the year however, and the industry was very different back then. Incidentally, Ico launched at #15 back in 2002.
Dead Rising 4 had a slightly better week, arriving at #5. Dead Rising 3 entered at #7 during the Xbox Oneâ€™s launch, but thereâ€™s no mention as to which had the strongest week one sales.
Perhaps the biggest news story the chart holds is that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has taken the top spot once again.
Chart-Track believes it may now stay there until Christmas, as Activision claimed the last two Xmas no.1s with Black Ops III and Advanced Warfare. With of Infinite Warfare dropping to Â£25 again at Tesco this week, itâ€™s certainly possible.
FIFA 17 â€“ last weekâ€™s chart topper â€“ falls to #2, Battlefield 1 moves up to #3 while Final Fantasy XV drops from #2 to #4. This means FFXV managed to outsell The Last Guardian and DR4 last week.
Watch_Dogs 2 remained at #6, Pokemon Sun rose one position take #8, Skyrim: Special Edition re-entered the top ten at #9 and then at #10 itâ€™s Pokemon Moon.
There were no other new entries in the top 40. We imagine thisâ€™ll be the case until 2017.
