'Destiny 2' smashes straight in at No.1 with the biggest launch of the year so far

Destiny 2

'Destiny 2' sweeps in to No1, becoming the biggest launch of the year so far.  Released on Wednesday 6th September, almost 3 years after the original, Activision Blizzard and Bungie’s online-only shooter pushes ‘Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’ off top spot, down one place to No2. 

Launched across Xbox One and PS4, 58% of sales go to Sony’s format and 42% to Microsoft’s. The original, which was also released on PS3 and Xbox 360, saw Sony’s formats account for 51% and Microsoft’s formats 49%. 

With the new Xbox One X only 2 months away, a retailer price promotion on the original Xbox One S hardware means bundled titles jump up the chart; most notably ‘Forza Horizon 3’up from No10 to No3, ‘Fallout 4’ up from No14 to No5, ‘Dishonored 2’ up from No17 to No8, ‘Doom’ up from No19 to No9 and ‘Minecraft: Xbox One Edition’ up from No24 to No11. 

There are new entries this week for ‘Knack II’ at No12, ‘Monster Hunter Stories’ at No21 and ‘The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+’ for Nintendo Switch at No36, while ‘Lego Worlds’ climbs 2 places to No14, boosted by the release of a Nintendo Switch version.
