It’s the start of another week, and time to review the UK retailers to see what games released, and how they fared in the chart. Last week saw a few new releases hit various platforms, while previous new releases began to slide.
Topping the chart this week is the PlayStation 4 remaster Ratchet & Clank. What a great return for the duo, and it knocked Dark Souls 3 off of its debuting top spot too. Star Wars Battlefront jumped massively last week from 12th into 3rd. Probably due to sales in stores perhaps.
Tom Clancy’s The Division slides again, from 2nd place down to 4th. Bugs and exploits or not, the game will still sell due to word of mouth and the massive marketing campaign.
Star Fox Zero released on Wii U last Friday, debuting in 6th which isn’t too bad at all. Great to see Fox and friends back in the skies again! Rugby Challenge 3 is another new release but that only managed to scrum itself into 13th place, but a top 20 showing isn’t anything to turn your nose up at either.
Far Cry Primal took a massive dive in the chart too, falling from 6th into 17th, and Codemasters’ Dirt Rally hit a tree and fell from 5th place into 10th.
