EA’s ‘The Sims 4’ becomes the publisher’s 4th title of the year to debut at No1.
It’s also the first PC-only All Formats No1 since ‘Guild Wars 2’ topped the chart just over two years. With price promotions on the 360 and PS3 versions, a surge in sales sees Ubisoft’s ‘Watch Dogs’ (+19%) climb 7 places to No2, placing it ahead of last week’s chart topper ‘Metro Redux’ (-58%) which slips to No3. ‘The Last of Us: Remastered’ (-30%) drops a place to No4 while last week’s No2 ‘Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition’ (-51%) is down to No5.
Outside the Top 10 this week a resurgent ‘Wolfenstein: The New Order’ (+10%) is another title to climb 7 places up to No14 thanks to price promotions. There are two other new entries in the Top 40 this week. ‘Danganrompa 2: Goodbye Despair’ lands for Vita at No29, debuting 13 places higher than ‘Danganrompa: Trigger Happy Havoc’, while week 1 sales are also up 12% on the debut week of its predecessor. Finally ‘Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate’ arrives for Xbox One and PS4 at No34.
