Titanfall may have pushed the Xbox One above the PlayStation 4 in the UK recently, but it looks like that bump is not going to last long. New stock of Sony’s next-gen system in addition to the release of the hotly anticipated inFAMOUS: Second Son has supposedly propelled the Japanese giant’s super machine back to the top of the charts – and that victory was reflected in the software sales list.
For starters, Sucker Punch’s superhero sequel soared straight to the summit, securing the second best launch of any PS4 game to date. Killzone: Shadow Fall remains the fastest seller, which is to be expected given its availability alongside the machine’s release. Elsewhere, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes sneaked into second, with 58 per cent of the sales occurring on Sony’s new system.
It wasn’t just good news for the manufacturer’s next-gen machine, however, as Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster managed to soar into fourth, one spot behind Titanfall. Even more fascinatingly is that the PlayStation Vita version finished ninth in the Individual Formats charts, above titles such as Dark Souls II, The LEGO Movie Videogame, and even FIFA 14. A pretty incredible result, really.
As always, you can peruse the full list of movers and shakers through here. We have a sneaking suspicion that Sony may be printing this week’s list out and hanging it on the wall as motivation moving forwards. After all, it wasn’t too long ago that Microsoft had total control of the UK sales charts, but things have totally changed over the past three or four months.
