Microsoft takes the No1 spot for the first time in 2016 with ‘Quantum Break’

Quantum Break

Microsoft is crowned No1 for the first time in 2016 with ‘Quantum Break’ sealing top spot. The Xbox One exclusive is the publisher’s first chart topping title since Halo 5: Guardians landed in November last year. It’s an extremely tight battle for the crown as racing in just behind is Codemasters’ ‘Dirt Rally’ on Xbox One, PS4 & PC. It’s an impressive debut for the title beating launch week sales of 2012’s ‘Dirt Showdown’ by an impressive 197%. It sits in good company in Codemasters’ popular Dirt series in 3rd place behind ‘Colin McRae: Dirt 2’ and ‘Dirt 3’ for opening week sales. Ubisoft’s four week run at the top is ended with ‘Tom Clancy’s: The Division’ (-41%) dropping down to No3. Racing fans are spoiled for choice this week with the arrival of ‘MXGP 2: The Official Motocross Videogame’ from PQube, the popular bike racing titles returns after just over a year at No17.
