Rare Sighting

10/Aug/2015

Released on Tuesday ‘Rare Replay’ enters the chart at No1 - the first Xbox One exclusive title ever to achieve this feat (as Titanfall was also available on PC at launch).


It is also the first Rare developed title to reach No1 since Banjo-Kazooie on N64 back in 1998 and is the first entirely budget priced All Formats No1 since Wii Fit Plus back in W45 2009. It does not have much competition this week with no other new releases of note to give it a run for its money. Sales of ‘Lego Jurassic World’ drop by 21% as it falls to No2 with ‘Batman Arkham Knight’ (-22%) also down by a similar margin, slipping one place to No3. ‘The Elder Scrolls Online’ (-8%) climbs two places to No4 on the tail end of last week’s promotion, pushing it ahead of ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-22%) which slides two places to No5. EA titles ‘FIFA 15’ and ‘Battlefield Hardline’ both see sales drops of 25% at No’s 6 and 7 respectively. No1 two weeks ago, ‘Rory McIlroy PGA Tour’ (-42%) drops another four places, down to No8, ahead of another sports title ‘F1 2015’ (-40%) at No9. The Top 10 is rounded off by the evergreen ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ (-7%) which bounces back into the Top 10 again, up two places to No10.
