U.K. Sales Charts

As usual, GFK Chart-Track offers game sales statistics for last week in the U.K. All 20 titles on the PC full-price top 20 for the week ending July 26th were also on last week's list, where The Elder Scrolls Online holds onto the number one spot. Big movers include Diablo III jumping to number six from number 12 and Sniper Elite 3 dropping to number 11 from number six. On the all platforms/all prices chart Watch Dogs remains top dog for the third straight week and the sixth week altogether. Here's their (oppressive) summary of this week's activity:

The UK heatwave continues, kids are all on holiday and there’s not a console new release in sight.

The overall market drops 3% units/revenue over last week and that means week 30 is the second lowest (units) so far this year and the lowest for revenue. Ubisoft’s ‘Watch Dogs’ (+3%) completes a double hat-trick of consecutive weeks at No1 (weeks 22-24 and weeks 28-30), now just 1 week away from equalling FIFA 14’s 7 weeks at No1 this year (12 weeks at No1 since launch). The aforementioned ‘FIFA 14’ from EA remains at No2 (+5%), Microsoft’s ‘Minecraft 360 Edition’ climbs three places to No3 (+4%) and 505 Games’ ‘Sniper Elite 3’ climbs one place to No4 (-6%).

The weeks big climber is Warner’s ‘The Lego Movie Videogame’ (+41%), climbing 7 places to No5 and benefitting from the campaign surrounding the launch this week of the movie on DVD/Blu-ray (out Monday 21st July). Sony’s ‘Minecraft PS3 Edition’ is now at No6 (-3%) and has climbed one place every week for the last 4 weeks. Elsewhere in the Top 40 EA’s ‘Skate 3’ (No25 / +17%) continues a remarkable return to the Top 40 (now stretching back 17 consecutive weeks) – the last time this title graced the Top 40 was almost 2 years ago and the game itself dates back to 2010. EA also have the highest re-entry at No31 with ‘Need for Speed: Rivals’ (+44%), benefitting from some price promotion activity.
