Project Cars Leads The Way

18/May/2015

‘Project Cars’ (-64%) holds on to No1 for a second week to become the first Bandai Namco title to do so since ‘Ridge Racer Type 4’ over 16 years ago.


Stand-alone expansion ‘Wolfenstein: The Old Blood’ from Bethesda debuts at No2 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Despite having been launched digitally on May 5th, the boxed versions debut strongly in the chart, especially the PS4 version which takes a 67% share compared to Xbox One’s 27%. ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-25%) makes way, dropping one place to No3, however this is not going to trouble Take 2/Rockstar’s record breaker as it has now passed 5 million sales in the UK. ‘Mortal Kombat X’ (-28%) also slips one place, down to No4, ahead of a re-entry for Square-Enix’s ‘Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster’ which rebounds back into the chart at No5 thanks to the launch of a PS4 version. Big hitters ‘FIFA 15’ (-24%) and ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (-16%) both look comfortable in the Top 10 at No’s 6 and 7 respectively.

More previous No1s occupy the final 3 Top 10 places with ‘Dying Light’ (-33%) down 3 places to No8, ‘Destiny’ (+0%) up one place to No9 and ‘Battlefield Hardline’ (-34%) down 3 places to No10. Bandai Namco could well be celebrating three 3 weeks at No1 next week as ‘Project Cars’ goes up against another of their own titles, ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’.
