Debuting at No1 just like the 3 games in the series covered within this remaster (Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite) is 2K/Take 2’s ‘Bioshock: The Collection’ for PS4 & Xbox One.
After a particularly slow week 36, this week 37 sees 7 new releases within the All Formats Top 40, all of which debut within the Top 20. 4 of these new releases are within the Top 10 and 3 occupy the tops spots. Konami debut at No2 with the 5-format ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2017’ – this is up one place over last year’s debut with physical retail sales down slightly (-3%). Gen 8 (PS4/Xbox One) console versions of PES17 account for 93% of console software sales, up from 86% last year. Debuting at No3 (just like last year’s NBA 2K16) is 2K/Take 2’s 4-format ‘NBA 2K17’.
Microsoft debut at No5 with Xbox One format-exclusive new IP ‘ReCore’. Also debuting this week is Square/Nintendo’s 3DS ‘Dragon Quest VII: The Forgotten Past’ at No12, EA’s ‘NHL 17’ at No15 and Telltale Games’ ‘Batman: The Telltale Series’ at No19.
