The PS4 version of the game bagged the fifth biggest launch of the year, behind Watch Dogs, Titanfall, Wolfenstein: The New Order and Infamous: Second Son. It also managed to become the systems’ fourth best launch for the PS4, again just behind Infamous: Second Son.
This performance pushed six-time number one Watch Dogs down to second place and FIFA 14 slips down to third spot, despite both games enjoying a rise in sales.
An increase in sales of 27% is enough to lift The LEGO Movie Videogame up into fourth, with the Xbox 360 and PS3 Editions’ of Minecraft taking up fifth and sixth place, respectively. The Xbox 360 Edition is able to hold out its lead over its sister version, but with only 14 sales between them, according to Chart Track.
Sniper Elite 3 drops again to seventh, whilst Call of Duty: Ghosts climbs a place into eighth.
Battlefield 4 climbs again to ninth whilst Grand Theft Auto V rounds off the Top 10 this week.
