The new phone books are here! Also, the new GfK Chart-Track charts are now
online reporting on game sales figures in the U.K. for the week ending August
2nd. It's déjà vu all over again on the
full-price PC games chart
where The Elder Scrolls Online
the number one spot, the top four positions remain unchanged, and the only new
title compared with last week is Dark Souls II, which re-enters at number 17.
There is a new entry on the
all platforms/all prices chart
, sort of, as The Last of Us: Remastered bumps
Watch Dogs out of the number one spot. Here's their write-up:
of Us: Remastered’ brings the critically acclaimed title to PS4 this week.
It debuts at the top of the All Formats Chart just like the PS3 original did
over a year ago. It also becomes the 5th biggest launch of the year so far and
the 4th biggest PS4 launch ever, sitting just behind ‘Infamous: Second Son’.
Last week’s No1 ‘Watch Dogs’ (+3%) has to settle for 2nd place and ‘FIFA 14’
(+12%) also drops one place, down to No3. However, with the school holidays now
in full swing, sales of all Top 10 titles (except GTA V) are up.
‘The Lego Movie Videogame’ enjoys the biggest Top 10 sales jump this week, an
increase of 27% pushing it up one place to No4. Both Minecrafts are sitting
pretty at No’s 5 and 6 with the Xbox 360 version (+11%) ahead of the PS3 version
(+22%) by only 14 sales. All Formats No1 four weeks ago, ‘Sniper Elite 3’ (+3%)
drops from No4 to No7, while FPS big guns ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (+21%) and
‘Battlefield 4’ (+24%) both climb one place to No’s 8 and 9 respectively with
sales up by similar margins. ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-5%) rounds off the Top 10,
down 3 places to No10
