Dragon Quest VIII soars above Gravity Rush 2

The UK chart can be an unpredictable beast at times. We expected Gravity Rush 2 – the first major PS4 exclusive of 2017 – to break into the top ten, but instead it arrived at #16.

It was even outsold by Dragon Quest VIII, which entered at a slightly more respectable #13.

There’s every chance that Gravity Rush 2 will rise in the coming weeks – it’s likely some gamers are yet to receive their first pay cheque of 2017.

It’s GTA V that claims for the top spot, making it two weeks running and 11 weeks in total – the most for any GTA game. FIFA 17 and Infinite Warfare switch places at #2 and #3, Battlefield 1 remains at #4 and then at #5 it’s Watch_Dogs 2.

Rocket League moves up one position to #6, Steep rose two places to #7, Forza Horizon 3 dropped to #8, Mafia III falls to #9 and then at #10 it’s Overwatch, up from #18.

Over in the single format charts, Fate/Extella and Atelier Shallie Plus entered at #1 and #2 respectively in the PS Vita chart. The PS4 version of Fate/Extella meanwhile was a no-show.
