Destiny arrives at No1 as the biggest new IP launch ever

Released on Tuesday 9th September, Activision Blizzard and Bungie’s blockbuster ‘Destiny’ arrives at No1 as the biggest new IP launch ever.  Destiny is only playable online, but this hasn’t stopped it from toppling this year’s previous biggest launch and new IP, Ubisoft’s ‘Watch Dogs’.  The PS4 edition, accompanied by sales from new fixed hardware bundles in both black and white, takes a 46% share, Xbox One 36%, Xbox 360 14% and PS3 4%.  Last week’s No1 ‘The Sims 4’ (-63%) drops to second place ahead of ‘Watch Dogs’ which despite a 29% boost in sales from retailer promotions also slips one place, down to No3.  Activision Blizzard have 2 titles in the Top 5 thanks to ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (+11%) gaining two places, up to No4.  ‘The Last of Us: Remastered’ ( -16%) and ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (-6%) both make way for ‘Destiny’, down one place to No’s 5 and 6 respectively.  There are two more Top 10 new entries this week with EA’s ‘NHL 15’ launching at No7 (a better placing than NHL 14’s debut at No11) and Bandai Namco’s PS3/360 ‘Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution’ at No10.  ‘Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare’ (-20%) and ‘Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition’ (-11%) are both non-movers at No8 and No9.  Previous No1s ‘Diablo III Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil’ (-51%) and ‘Metro Redux’ (-52%) both fall out of the Top 10, Diablo down from No5 to No13 and Metro down from No3 to No14.  Standalone PS4 expansion ‘Infamous: First Light’ is switched on at No17 and retailer promotions on ‘The Borderlands Collection (1 & 2)’ (+999%) and ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary’ (+235%) push them both back into the Top 40 at No’s 24 and 29 respectively.
