Standalone spin-off Uncharted: The Lost Legacy debuted third in the United States sales charts for August 2017 – an impressive result considering many scored the title for free as part of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’s season pass. The side-story was beaten by Madden NFL 18 and a resurgent Grand Theft Auto V, though it’s perhaps worth mentioning that the charts are ordered by revenue and Chloe and Nadine’s outing retailed for a cheaper $40.

It’s a result that Sony and Naughty Dog will no doubt be satisfied with, though it wasn’t enough to propel the PlayStation 4 back to the top of the hardware charts. That honour has instead gone to the Nintendo Switch for the second month in a row, and there’s a nice tussle between the two systems taking place now. According to the NPD’s Mat Piscatella, the PS4 is still currently the top-selling console in the States year-to-date, but it’s going to have to really scrap to hold onto that crown as Christmas nears.
