Battlefield Hardline and Bloodborne are still the top selling games in the UK sales charts, even if they currently don’t have much competition.
With almost no new releases last week there’s obviously little to expect from the new charts, with no change in the entire top five of the individual formats top 40.
Bloodborne saw a 58 per cent fall in sales in its third week but that was still enough to maintain the top spot in the individual formats top 40, despite a drop to number six in the all formats.
Likewise, Battlefield Hardline sales fell by 56 per cent in its fourth week. Since it’s available on multiple formats, including last gen consoles, it’s been able to claim the all formats number one for the entire time.
The only actual new release last week was the Xbox versions of motorbike game Ride, which gave the game an 81 per cent increase in sales and saw it rise 31 places to number 18 in the all formats chart. The Xbox One version was the only to make it into the individual formats top 40, at number 34.
The improvement in chart positions for Forza Horizon 2 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection is down to their inclusion in Xbox One hardware bundles, although both games still saw a decrease in sales from the previous week.
But while last week was extremely quiet for new releases this Tuesday sees the launch of both Mortal Kombat X (excluding the last gen versions) and Grand Theft Auto V on PC. With the charts as stagnant as they are Mortal Kombat X should have no problem going straight to number one.
