Project: CARS also becomes the first racing game to reach the top of the charts since GRID 2 managed it back in 2013. According to Chart Track the majority of the games’ sales came from the PS4, which accounted for 63% of its total, with the Xbox One coming in with 31%. PC sales accounted for the rest, although it would’ve undoubtedly sold better digitally on PC.
Grand Theft Auto V holds onto second place again, as Mortal Kombat X drops to third in its fourth week in the charts.
FIFA 15 stays still in fourth as Dying Light climbs again to fifth.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare enjoys a jump of two places to sixth, whilst Battlefield: Hardline suffers a drop of four places to seventh.
Minecraft: Xbox Edition is down to eighth as Halo: The Master Chief Collection maintains its performance to secure ninth again. Destiny enjoys a healthy sales boost, perhaps due to the upcoming House of Wolves DLC, climbing six places to 10th.
Elsewhere in the charts, there are two new entries from Nintendo to grace the Top 40. First up we have Wii U exclusive Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush, which enters the chart in 21st. Secondly, we have a compilation game for the 3DS: Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Edition in 32nd.
The UK All Formats Chart Top 10 (Week ending 9th May 2015) is as follows:

Next week we have the remastered edition of Final Fantasy X/X-2. It should break the Top 10 but with it being a single-platform release it is doubtful to challenge Project: CARS next week.
