'Ratchet & Clank' holds on to the No.1 spot for a second week

Ratchet & Clank

‘Ratchet & Clank’ (-49%) holds on to No1 in the All Formats Chart for a second week. The last Sony title to do this was ‘The Last of Us: Remastered’ back in W32 2014.  ‘Ratchet & Clank’ is also the 7th biggest Sony first-party PS4 launch and gives Sony PS4 exclusive titles a total of 8 weeks at No1 compared to Microsoft’s 5 weeks for Xbox One first-party exclusive titles. 

PS4 retailer hardware bundling alongside the recent launch of ‘Eclipse’ the first new DLC, help propel ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ (+82%) up five places to No2, its highest chart position since it topped the chart back in week 7.  ‘Dark Souls III’ (-29%) slips one place to No3, while ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ (-5%) and ‘EA Sports UFC 2’ (+2%) are both non-movers at 4 and 5 respectively. 

Spring and Bank Holiday retailer promotions push three titles back in to the Top 10 with reappearances for ‘Lego Marvel Avengers’ (+45%) up from No11 to No6, ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+33%) up from No12 to No8 and ‘Far Cry Primal’ (+53%) up from No17 to No9.  The only new entry this week is Nintendo’s ‘Yo-Kai Watch’ for 3DS which debuts at No14.  Retailer promotions extend to the rest of the Top 40 with most titles seeing sales boosts. In fact ¾ of all Top 40 titles experience sales increases this week.
