God of War's High Five

21/May/2018

Sony’s PS4 ‘God of War’ takes a fifth consecutive week at No1 – just one more No1 will see it equal the 6 consecutive weeks for Sony’s ‘The Last of Us’ on PS3 (starting week 24, 2013).


There are around 17 core titles across 9 retailers being promoted throughout this month under the ‘LetsPlayMay’ campaign, but EA’s ‘FIFA 18’, although not part of this campaign, benefits from massive retail promotion to rise 2 places to No2. So Nintendo’s ‘Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition’ for Switch has to settle for a No3 debut – this is the same position the original ‘Hyrule Warriors’ on WiiU debuted back in week 38/2014. In terms of the aforementioned ‘LetsPlayMay’ campaign there are 13 titles in the Top 40 this week and 4 within the Top 10 – Warner’s ‘Lego Marvel Superheroes 2’ (No6), Ubisoft’s ‘Assassins Creed Origins’ (No7), Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘GTA V’ (No9) and Activision’s ‘Call of Duty WWII’ (No10). There are also a couple of Koch-distributed Atlus titles debuting this week, with ‘Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Redux’ for 3DS debuting at No31 and ‘Dragon’s Crown Pro’ for PS4 debuting at No33.
