UK Sales Charts: The Division Causes UFC 2 to Submit

Twisted its arm

The Division is very much the flavour of the month, so it's no surprise to see it fend off EA Sports UFC 2 in the latest UK sales chart, which finished in second. The sequel bettered sales of its predecessor by 53 per cent, but that wasn't anywhere near enough to overcome Ubisoft's looter shooter. Further down, Call of Duty: Black...

Critical hit

Tom Clancy's The Division has started life impressively well in Japan, topping the software charts on PlayStation 4.

Turtle power

Platinum Games' take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 this May.

The big guns

This was a big week for new releases, with both The Division and Hitman arriving on the PlayStation 4.
