Sony Gives Evolve Marching Orders


Another new release comes straight in at No1 for a second successive week – last week saw a No1 launch for 2K/Take 2’s ‘Evolve’ and this week it is Sony’s turn to debut at No1 with PS4 exclusive ‘The Order: 1886’.

It was developed by Ready at Dawn Studios, known for PSP Daxter and PSP God of War titles. Sony’s last No1 was back in August 2014 with Naughty Dog’s ‘The Last of Us: Remastered’, also for PS4.

Activision climb 1 place to No2 with ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (+3%) and the aforementioned ‘Evolve’ drops from No1 to No3 (-66%). Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 4’ gets pushed even higher (promotional activity and now half-term) climbing a further 3 places to No4 (+28%). Meanwhile Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘GTA V’ (+0%) remains stable in sales and chart position at No5. Half-term boosts all versions of Minecraft, with ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ climbing one place to No7 (+31%) and ‘Minecraft: Playstation Edition’ climbing 2 places to No9 (+27%). Nintendo’s big new 3DS entry last week, ‘Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D’ drops from No2 to No8 (-70%) and Capcom’s 3DS ‘Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate’ shows a similar pattern, down from No4 to No12 (-68%).

This week we also welcome 2 more new entries with Sega and Creative Assembly’s ‘Total War: Attila’ for PC strategists at No21 and Koei Tecmo’s ‘Dead or Alive 5 Last Round’ for PS4/XO owners at No27.
