Like taking candy from a baby

Eidos Montreal’s long awaited Thief reboot may have been caught red handed from a critical perspective, but it's still managed to steal a place at the top of the UK sales charts. The title debuted with the second-best week one sales of the year thus far, with the PlayStation 4 iteration outselling its Xbox One counterpart.

Elsewhere, fresh from its crusade at the top of best-sellers list, The LEGO Movie Videogame slipped into second, while FIFA 14 dribbled into third. Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 fired into fifth and sixth respectively, as LEGO Marvel Super Heroes punched seventh. PlayStation 3 sequel Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 entered in tenth, while Tales of Symphonia: Chronicles arrived in 13th.

With stock still not readily available in the region, PS4 software sales took a tumble out of the charts entirely, with Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack nowhere to be found. The manufacturer will need to start thinking about rectifying this issue soon – especially with a cheaper Xbox One bundle lingering on the horizon.
