Final Fantasy XV 15 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Final Fantasy XV couldn't Noctis FIFA 17 from its perch in this week's UK sales charts – but it still registered the second strongest first week sales for a Final Fantasy game in Britain, falling only short of Final Fantasy XIII's week one numbers. We're pretty sure that Square Enix will see that as a success – especially if the trend continues globally.

Unsurprisingly, it was the PlayStation 4 version that carried much of the weight, with the Sony SKU finishing first in the Individual Formats chart, while the Xbox One edition languished all the way down in 14th position. That's despite Microsoft actually marketing the title quite heavily on these shores – it seems that most JRPG fans are centralised on the PS4.

It wasn't a particularly big week for new releases, but Steep did enter in 24th place, which has got to be considered an unmitigated disaster for Ubisoft. We didn't even know that it was coming out. Elsewhere, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End actually re-entered the top ten on the back of great hardware bundles, while the likes of Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare stuck around.
