UK Charts 29/02/16: Far Cry Primal Knocks Black Ops III Off The Top Of The Charts

Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal has pushed Call of Duty: Black Ops III from the top of charts in its debut week, in fact the Activision shooter has fallen to fourth place as there is another new entry in second place, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, and FIFA 16 has jumped up to third.

Street Fighter V has taken a bit of a tumble from second to to tenth place, and 3DS exclusive Bravely Second: End Layer – honestly, who thinks up these names –  misses out of the ten and lands in twelfth position.

During discussion of this month’s PlayStation Plus games Bunimomike commented, “It would be nice to see launch-period titles starting to filter,” to which I replied “Killzone Shadow Fall still pops at the bottom of the UK sales charts now and then, as does Knack.”

Both Knack and Killzone Shadow Fall are lurking around the bottom of the charts this week. See, I know what I’m talking about. Occasionally.

  1. “Both Knack and Killzone Shadow Fall are lurking around the bottom of the charts this week. See, I know what I’m talking about. Occasionally.”

    Indeed you do. It does however raise the question of just who the hell is buying these titles at the moment for them to still have chart positioning??

    Its Sony staff isn’t it? Buy it at full price, refund a moment later, only count the sale & not the refund. Would be a good way of keeping the price high (& therefore not ‘needing’ to give either away on plus)!

    • Knack is a tenner in GAME new. I’ve never played it and always fancied it. I guess people like me pick it up still.

      Especially when other games in GAME are so expensive yet old. Now everyone on here knows that GAME is far too expensive almost all the time but it still gets a large footfall from the average gamer I’d say.

      Anyway, is Knack worth picking up?

      • No idea if I’m honest fella – Never played it. It was one of those “well, might pick it up if there’s a lull” kinda titles for me, but said lull never actually occurred, so it never got purchased.

        Have to say that I hadn’t seen it that cheap though, it’s been pretty close to full price in all the places I have seen it. That said, I wasn’t looking for it.
