LEGO won't let go

18/Jul/2016

Warner’s ‘Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ (-45%) holds on to No1 for a third week in a row.


The only other Lego title to spend more consecutive weeks at No1 is ‘Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes’ with 5 weeks back in 2012. A retailer’s shopping event day gives a boost to several previous chart toppers with ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ (+152%) jumping four places to No2, ahead of this week’s highest new entry, ‘Monster Hunter Generations’ on 3DS at No3. ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+91%) and ‘Fallout 4’ (+85%) also benefit, climbing from No7 to No5 and No20 to No10 respectively. Hardware bundles were included in the sales event leading to ‘Zoo Tycoon’ and ‘Kinect Sports Rivals’ from Microsoft’s Xbox One Holiday Bundle shooting back in to the Top 40 at No’s 11 and 12. Promoted titles outside the Top 10 also enjoy sales increases with ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ (+113%) up 19 places to No13 while ‘Guitar Hero Live’ (+789%) re-enters the Top 40 at No15.
