Taking off on Wednesday 10th August, ‘No Man’s Sky’ shoots straight to No1.
It becomes Sony’s 2nd biggest ever PS4 launch (behind Uncharted 4) and Sony’s biggest launch for a new IP on PS4. In terms of new IP across all publishers and Sony formats it sits 5th behind Destiny (PS4), Watch Dogs (PS4), The Getaway (PS2) and The Last of Us (PS3). Last week’s No1 ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-22%) drops to No2 while the rest of the Top 10 shuffles amongst itself. ‘Mario & Sonic: Rio 2016 Olympic Games’ (+12%) climbs 8 places to No15, its highest ever chart position, as the Olympic Games itself gets underway.
