The Witcher III: Wild Hunt replaces Project Cars at the top of the All Formats chart

Bandai Namco replace one No1 with another as ‘The Witcher III: Wild Hunt’ replaces ‘Project Cars’ at the top of the All Formats chart.  In terms of sales it smashes the week 1 sell through of ‘Battlefield Hardline’ by 53% to become the biggest debut week for a title in 2015 so far.  It matches the debut position of ‘The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings’, but ‘Witcher III’ also delivers an increase of 608% on the week 1 sales of its 2012 predecessor.  Available across three formats, PS4 is the clear winner taking a 63% share.  At No2 and technically a re-entry having already been available on PC, ‘Farming Simulator 15’ adds four new formats to its roster propelling it into second spot.  Developer Giants Software adds PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions for the first time.  Having passed 5 million sales in the UK a few weeks ago ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+23%) shows no sign of slowing down and holds No3 for a second week.  A strong boost in sales for ‘FIFA 15’ (+49%) sees it climb two places to No4 above last week’s No1 ‘Project Cars’ (-56%) which slips to No5 in its third week.  ‘Wolfenstein: The Old Blood’ (-34%) is down four places to No6 following its No2 debut last week.  Retailer bundles deliver a massive increase to ‘Bloodborne’ (+286%), leaping 22 places to just outside the Top 10 at No11.
