Watch Dogs takes top spot in Ukie Games Chart for 3rd consecutive week

Watch Dogs takes top spot in Ukie Games Chart for 3rd consecutive week

The UK heatwave continues, kids are all on holiday and there’s not a console new release in sight this week.  The overall market drops 3% units/revenue over last week and that means week 30 is the second lowest (units) so far this year and the lowest for revenue.  Ubisoft’s ‘Watch Dogs’ (+3%) completes a double hat-trick of consecutive weeks at No1 (weeks 22-24 and weeks 28-30), now just 1 week away from equalling FIFA 14’s 7 weeks at No1 this year (12 weeks at No1 since launch).  The aforementioned ‘FIFA 14’ from EA remains at No2 (+5%), Microsoft’s ‘Minecraft 360 Edition’ climbs three places to No3 (+4%) and 505 Games’ ‘Sniper Elite 3’ climbs one place to No4 (-6%).  The weeks big climber is Warner’s ‘The Lego Movie Videogame’ (+41%), climbing 7 places to No5 and benefitting from the campaign surrounding the launch this week of the movie on DVD/Blu-ray (out Monday 21st July).  Sony’s ‘Minecraft PS3 Edition’ is now at No6 (-3%) and has climbed one place every week for the last 4 weeks.  Elsewhere in the Top 40 EA’s ‘Skate 3’ (No25 / +17%) continues a remarkable return to the Top 40 (now stretching back 17 consecutive weeks) – the last time this title graced the Top 40 was almost 2 years ago and the game itself dates back to 2010.  EA also have the highest re-entry at No31 with ‘Need for Speed: Rivals’ (+44%), benefitting from some price promotion activity.
