Far Ahead

07/Mar/2016

Ubisoft remain at No1 for a 2nd week thanks to ‘Far Cry Primal’ and PS4/Xbox One console versions are joined by PC this week (-64%).


EA’s ‘Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2’ (-54%) was the other Top 3 debutant from last week and this drops one place from No2 to No3. Jumping in between them to debut at No2 is Nintendo’s ‘The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’, re-mastered for WiiU. Of course, the original Twilight Princess was a launch title for Wii back in week 49, 2006 (selling to 2/3rds of Wii hardware buyers that week). Twilight Princess was also released on Gamecube a week after the Wii came out, so this is in effect a third outing over 3 Nintendo consoles spanning 14 years (Gamecube 2002, Wii 2006, WiiU 2012).

Debuting at No8 is Sony’s Quantic Dream compilation ‘Heavy Rain & Beyond Two Souls’ – both titles launched on PS3 back in 2010 and 2013 respectively. Heavy Rain in particular deserves a mention for sales success as the title ranks as the 4th best by revenue on PS3 in the UK, when ranked on titles by independent developers (No1 ‘Resistance Fall of Man’ - Insomniac, No2 ‘L.A. Noire’ – Team Bondi, No3 ‘Need for Speed Shift’ - Slightly Mad Studios). The final new release within the Top 40 is Warner’s complete-with-all-DLC edition ‘Mortal Kombat XL’ at No21.
