The huge success of the Jurassic World film at the box office seems to have rubbed off on Warner’s Lego title as ‘Lego Jurassic World’ (+3%) eats up ‘The Elder Scrolls Online’, jumping one place to No1.
It is the first Lego No1 since ‘The Lego Movie Videogame’ in W7 2014. It also becomes the 7th Traveller’s Tales Lego title to reach No1 since ‘Lego Star Wars’ kicked it all off in March 2005. The Xbox 360 version consolidates its position as the lead format for Lego Jurassic World with sales up 26%. Sales of ‘The Elder Scrolls Online’ drop by 71% in its second week as it falls down to No2. ‘The Witcher III: Wild Hunt’ (-19%) holds on to No3 ahead of ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-4%) and ‘FIFA 15’ (-14%) who both climb one place to No’s 4 and 5 respectively. ‘Payday 2: Crimewave Edition’ falls from No4 to No6 with sales only down by 24%.
Two very different shooters; ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (+8%) and ‘Splatoon’ (-8%) are both non-movers at No7 and No8, while a third shooter, ‘Destiny’ (-1%) sneaks back into the Top 10, up 2 places to No9. ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ (-3%) rounds off the Top 10, also up 2 places, to No10. No other new releases make the Top 40 this week, although another new Warner No1 beckons with big hitter ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ due for release on Tuesday.
