We love charts here at Player Attack, and one of the highlights of our week is receiving the latest details from UKIE, who send us the 10 best-selling titles in Britain, as announced by The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment.
Destiny: The Taken King has given Activision its first #1 since Week 6 of this year, when Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare topped the chart. 16% of the people who rushed out and bought Destiny in its first week have also rushed out and bought this major retail expansion, but we’re expecting this one will be a slow burner (also, remember, we can’t see digital sales from here). The platform breakdown for The Taken King is unsurprising: 57% PS4, 34% Xbox One, Xbox 360 7% and PS3 just 2%.
Meanwhile, it’s a big week for new releases, with brand new titles at #1, #2, #3, #9 and #15 – and Titanfall even pops up again at #25 thanks to a neat retailer Xbox One bundle deal. A sales drop of 54% has seen The Phantom Pain slide to #4, after both Forza Motorsport 6 and PES Soccer 2016 sneaking onto the list – while Rugby League Live 3 gets ready for the start of the World Cup, bounding in at #9.
