Evolve debuts at top of Ukie Games Chart

Evolve

Evolve leads the pack of new debutants in the Ukie Games Chart

The All Formats chart receives a much needed boost with 2K/Take 2’s ‘Evolve’ leading the pack of new debutants and taking the No1 crown.  Xbox One just edges the format share by a mere 1% with fewer than 400 sales between the two Gen 8 versions, while PC accounts for just 3% of boxed units.  For Take 2 it’s their first chart topping title that’s not part of the Grand Theft Auto franchise since ‘Bioshock Infinite’ back in March 2013.  With the release of new Nintendo 3DS & 3DS XL consoles giving a 57% boost to hardware this week, it’s no surprise that two new 3DS titles debut in the Top 5.  ‘The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D’ lands at No2 and is the biggest selling single format title of the week.  ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ (+14%) is forced down to third place despite promotions driving strong sales.  The second monster hunting title in the chart this week is the aptly named ‘Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate’, which makes its mark at No4.  The title’s week 1 sales are an impressive 95% up on predecessor ‘Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate’ as the series starts to gain real traction in the West.  ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-7%) and ‘FIFA 15’ (-1%) are both down 3 places to No5 and No6 respectively.  A colossal sales push driven by retailer promotions pushes Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 4’ (+128%) up two places to No7.  Familiar face ‘Minecraft: Xbox Edition’ (-13%) is at No8 although ‘Minecraft: PlayStation Edition’ (-9%) slips to No11.  Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ (-16%) and ‘Destiny’ (+3%) round off the Top 10 at No9 and No10.
