Golf simulation Rory McIlroy PGA Tour hits a hole in one this week

Rory is the new Tiger as EA claim No1 after a year out of the golf sim market – ‘Rory McIlroy PGA Tour’ debuts at No1 and is currently the only PS4/Xbox One golf game.  This PGA Tour game drops the year incremental in the title and drops Tiger Woods after 18 years (first was ‘Tiger Woods 99’ on PC back in Oct98).  It is also the first PGA golf game to claim No1 since 2008’s ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09’ - both had similar week 1 sales.  The PGA golf game series stretches back to ‘PGA Tour Golf’ on PC (Jul90) and the current version launched on Thursday 16th July, the first day of The Open.  This is actually the second game in the series to launch on a Thursday – the other was ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14’ which came out on Thursday 28th March, 2013 in advance of Easter Good Friday.  Codemasters’ ‘F1 2015’ (-57%) drops to No2 with Warner’s ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ down 1 to No3 (-36%).  Activision’s ‘Destiny’ climbs 4 places to No6 (+90%), one of many titles to receive a boost after the inaugural Amazon Prime Day deals.  The only other new entry within the Top 40 is Sony’s ‘God of War III: Remastered’ debuting at No9 for PS4 (the original PS3 version launched back in week 11, 2010).
