There are three new entries in the Top 3 this week, led by Sony’s ‘Detroit: Become Human’ which is the 10th different PlayStation exclusive title to reach No1 so far this year. Microsoft’s new format exclusive ‘State of Decay 2’ has to settle for a debut at No2, while ‘Dark Souls Remastered’ enters at No3.
Sony’s PS4 ‘God of War’ takes a fifth consecutive week at No1 – just one more No1 will see it equal the 6 consecutive weeks for Sony’s ‘The Last of Us’ on PS3 (starting week 24, 2013).
Fourth week at no.1 for 'God of war'
Sony’s PS4 ‘God of War’ takes a fourth consecutive week at No1. Last week it equalled ‘The Last of Us: Remastered’ and so now has one more week – for a Sony published game it is now looking to beat a 6 week consecutive run for Sony’s ‘The Last of Us’ on PS3 (starting week 24, 2013), or if including PS2, an 8 week run for ‘Gran Turismo 3’ (starting week 29, 2011).
Hat-trick for God of War
Sony’s PS4 re-launch of ‘God of War’ in a Norse environment claims No1 and is the second biggest week 1 release so far this year behind Ubisoft’s recent ‘Far Cry 5’, which drops to No2 after 3 straight weeks at No1.
Another quiet week in terms of new releases and Ubisoft remain unchallenged with a third consecutive week at No1 for ‘Far Cry 5’. In terms of recent Ubisoft games with more than 2 weeks at No1, Ubisoft’s ‘Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ from 2017 managed 4 weeks at No1 (2 weeks consecutive), whilst 2016’s ‘The Division’ racked up 4 consecutive weeks at No1.
