Battlefield Hardline has secured a third week at the top spot of the UK Video Games Charts, despite sales falling by 40 per cent week-on-week.
Sales of GTA 5, meanwhile, were up 35 per cent – enough to see the game climb two positions to No.2. Bloodborne falls one place to No.3 after suffering a 55 per cent drop-off.
FIFA 15 continues to perform well as it climbs back up the charts to No.4, with Far Cry 4 also moving up three places to No.5.
Last week’s biggest new release Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin debuts at No.8, although New 3DS exclusive Xenoblade Chronicles 3D lands way down the charts at No.27. The Sims 4 expansion pack Get Back To Work debuts at No.18, although a significant amount of sales are likely to be digital and therefore not accounted for in today’s charts.
Other big movers this week include Destiny, which climbs ten places to No.10 after being discounted to £15 at Amazon, with Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Forza Horizon 2 both moving further up the charts following last week’s impressive Xbox One bundles.
