Deep Silver's Saints Row 4 has held on to the No.1 spot for a second week, despite a flurry of new releases, Chart Track reports.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist also holds firm at No.2, meaning Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is the week's highest new entry at No.3.

Disney Infinity drops a place to No.4, followed by Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition at No.5.

Rayman: Legends is new at No.6, but performed 20 per cent better than Origins back in 2011 and, despite being moved to an all-formats release, sold 45 per cent of its total on Wii U.

Madden NFL 25 is new at No.7, but you have to drop all the way to No.26 to find Capcom's Lost Planet 3, which must signal the end of the franchise. Killer is Dead is also a new entry at No.28.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Saints Row 4's stay at the top will likely come to an end next week with the release of Diablo 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3, and SEGA's Total War: Rome 2. Killzone: Mercenary is also new for PS Vita, but won't be able to compete with the week's bigger titles.

I called it! I knew Rayman Legends would sell nearly half of it's week one sales to Wii U. It makes sense considering the Wii U audience was most vocal about it. I can see over time the other platforms probably surpassing the Wii U sales of RL, but at least this will show Ubisoft that there is some worth in supporting the Wii U.
