New IP from ‘Borderlands’ indie developer Gearbox Software debuts at No1.
The 2K and Take 2 published ‘Battleborn’ takes the top spot and is a first No1 for the Take 2 family for over a year (last was GTA V in week 11, 2015). There’s not a lot else happening this week as the UK receives some summer sunshine and overall sales slump by 11% over last week. Activision’s ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ continues at No2 (-3%) and Sony’s ‘Ratchet & Clank’ (-51%) drops from a two week stint at No1 to No3. Rockstar and Take 2’s ‘GTA V’ continues to climb another 4 places to No4 this week (+20%) and Ubisoft drop one place to No5 with ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ (-28%), making it 9 weeks within the Top 5. It’s a few days before the release of ‘Uncharted 4’ and Sony’s ‘Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection’ re-enters the chart at No22 (+125%) thanks to some retail promotion.
