Wrong hardware

Xbox One and PC exclusive Titanfall unsurprisingly assaulted the summit of the UK sales charts this week, securing the biggest launch of the year so far. We can’t help but wonder if publisher EA’s pondering how big that debut could have been if it had actually opted to release the title on the PlayStation 4 as well.

Nevertheless, the sales of the first-person shooter were strong enough to block Dark Souls II from the summit, which entered in second. While it didn’t have the oomph to overcome the abovementioned next-gen outing, it still saw a 20 per cent increase in sales over its 2011 predecessor. Not bad at all.

Elsewhere, South Park: The Stick of Truth slipped into third, while The LEGO Movie Videogame and Thief rounded out the top five. Like the current Manchester United team, FIFA 14 tumbled down the table as a result, dribbling dismally into sixth. Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 fleshed out the top ten, as Killzone: Shadow Fall re-entered in 20th position.

As always, you can peruse the full list of movers and shakers through here. Next week should be significantly more exciting, as new stock of Sony’s next-gen super machine is set to arrive in the UK, alongside inFAMOUS: Second Son and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
