UK Charts 16/05/16: Do We Really Need To Tell You What Is #1?

Now this may come as a shock to many of you so I hope you are sitting down and have stiff drink to hand, are you ready? Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has claimed the top spot during it’s first week of release! I know, right?!?! Who could have predicted that!

Sarcasm aside what we couldn’t have predicted is just how well it has done, smashing first week sales of Uncharted 3 by 66%. If that wasn’t enough to make Sony do a little dance, Ratchet & Clank is still selling very well a month after release and is in fourth position.

Doom has also done very well although it never had a hope in hell’s chance of beating Mr Drake, and Star Wars: Battlefront pops back in to the top ten, because Star Wars.

Update: Cripes, just noticed last weeks #1, Battleborn, has plummeted to #12. Not good.

  1. Is it Coffin Dodgers?

    • Digital sales are not included in the UKIE charts, so no.

      • You won’t need to tell us what is at the top of the digital downloads charts then! #shoeIn

  2. Deserved the top spot. Brilliant game from start to finish… I have over 200 screenshots of the game lol

    • I took so many. If I printed them out and flicked through them super-fast, it would be like watching the full game in motion. Absolutely stunning.

      • Ohhhh tempted xD will cost a lot of ink lol

    • Every moment in UC4 is a photo-opp, and that’s before you factor in the permutations of photo-mode! :)
      Come to think of it, some of those photos might make for some damn nice A3 size wall posters.. I’d have my work cut out choosing just one though.

  3. Remember the years when Codemasters used to have a few titles in the top 40 game sale charts? (I’m talking 90s)

  4. I’m still quite astonished that GTA V keeps selling and selling. Uncharted 4, which will hopefully arrive tomorrow for me, may be excellent, but it’ll be out of these charts in a couple of weeks. GTA stays, how is that even possible?
    I thought games are a huge market by now, or are most of these sales in absolute numbers still quite low, so that some left-over sales propel a game into the top ten, or what?

    • Charts are a funny thing – any type of sales charts, video games, music, whatever. the #1 might be selling 1m, but by #5 sales are a few thousand at best, an by #10 a it could be couple of hundred. Most people rush out and buy “The next big thing” on the day of release.

      As for GTAV, it – as is R&C, CoD, FIFA and a load of other near the top – are bundled with new PS4s and Xboxes, so that helps them hang about in the charts for ages.

      If you were buying in to PS4, and you asked them what games to buy first, GTAV is going to be one of them isnt it? It’s not current owners keeping it in the charts, its the new people coming to the consoles, those who perhaps don’t know much about video games so they go for what they heard of in popular culture – GTA, FIFA, CoD – all brands that have broken out from video games to become part of everyday vocabulary.

      • Ok, thanks, I didn’t think of the bundles. And of course there’s other games besides GTA V for which the same is true, but these appeal less to me so I probably tend not to see them.

    • GTA V… The Adele 21 of the gaming charts :)

  5. Incredible game. Feels so different in tone to the previous games but I enjoyed every second. For me it’s the best game on current gen hands down. I still cant believe how good it looks.

  6. Ratchet & Clank, Yes! Earn that sequel!

  7. Clearly a masterpiece of a game but not one I am enjoying sadly. I miss my crazy set pieces and I’m rubbish at stealth games :( I get that Uncharted has “grown up” but I’ve always enjoyed the series for its OTT moments and basic cover shooting. Like TLOU, its just not for me I guess.

    • Obviously you havent got to Chapter 11. It’s the biggest, most ridiculous, over the top thing to ever been seen in games, and puts many films to shame as well.

      • Good guess, I made it to Chapter10 over the weekend :)
        Will plod on through it, just disappointed how long it has taken to get going.
