Job done

Activision unveiled some pretty impressive statistics for Destiny: The Taken King last week, so it's no surprise to see the first-person semi-sequel shoot to the top of the UK sales charts. The game sold best on the PlayStation 4 – surprise, surprise – scooping up a whopping 57 per cent of the sales. However, the expansion could only manage 16 per cent of the original's launch numbers – though we suspect that a lot of people upgraded digitally.

Elsewhere, it was all change in third place with PES 2016: Pro Evolution Soccer kicking off in third. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain dropped all the way into fourth as a consequence, while Mad Max rounded out the top five. Grand Theft Auto V continued to prove its popularity in seventh, while Rugby League Live 3 entered in ninth on the back of World Cup fever. Until Dawn tumbled all the way down into 13th position.
