Call of Duty: Ghosts drops one place from fifth to get in ahead of Minecraft, on Xbox 360 at sixth and PlayStation 3 at ninth.

Plants vs Zombies falls four places to eighth. Grand Theft Auto V completes the top ten.

With promotions, Wolfenstein: The New Order (+10%) takes fourteenth. Danganrompa 2: Goodbye Despair lands at twenty-ninth on Vita, +12% and thirteen places above its predecessor. Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate also arrives at thirty-fourth.

UK PlayStation 4 Sales Surpass One Million

Sony announced Monday that the PlayStation 4 has sold over one million units in the UK, 42 weeks after first going on sale.

The console is now the second fastest selling console in the UK, surpassed only by the Nintendo Wii, which reached the one million mark after just 38 weeks.

By comparison to other consoles the PS4 beat the PS3 to one millions sales by four weeks and the PS2 by eight weeks. Perhaps most pleasing for Sony is the fact it beat the Xbox 360 by 18 weeks, whilst the  Xbox One has yet to reach its first million.


Metro Redux by
published Tuesday, Sep 02nd

UK Chart: Metro Redux Manages Ruling

The collective edition of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC – Metro Redux, claims the top of the chart at launch. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (-59%), The Last of Us: Remastered (-21%) and Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (-10%) drop one place each to slot in between second and fourth.

In the last week of the school holiday, Call of Duty: Ghosts (+13%) improves sales to hold fifth.

Madden NFL 15 arrives at sixth, one place better than Madden NFL 25 at this time last year.

Grand Theft Auto V is up two places to seventh ahead of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Watch Dogs, both of which fall to eighth and ninth.

Titanfall rises one place to finish back in the top ten.
