It jumps two places from No3 to No1 with retailer promotions pushing the ASP down by £5 to £31.20. Sales of ‘Doom’ are up 57% on last week giving Bethesda their first All Formats No1 since ‘Fallout 4’ and developer ID Software their first No1 since ‘Doom 3’ on PC topped the All Formats Chart in W34 2004. ‘Overwatch’ drops to No2 with sales down by 24%, remaining ahead of ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ (+1%) which climbs one place to No3. Older titles ‘FIFA 16’ (+21%) and ‘GTA V’ (+20%) still prove popular, also rising by one place to No’s 4 and 5 respectively. ‘Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’ (-62%) slips from No2 to No6, while retailer promotions boosts ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ (+52%) back in to the Top 10, up from No12 to No7. As Euro 2016 is now well under way, Konami’s updated Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 (+24%) title on PS4 and PS3 enjoys a 24% sales increase, although is a non-mover at No8. More promotions guide ‘Star War Battlefront’ (+63%) back in to the Top 10, up 7 places to No9. ‘Lego Marvel Avengers’ (+4%) rounds off the Top 10 at No10, while ‘MotoGP 16: Valentino Rossi’ is the only new title to break in to the Top 40, new at No19.
