UK Chart: Diablo III Reaper of Souls Reaches Summit
Diablo III reaches the top of the chart with the Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition, bringing the franchise to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 release takes the majority of sales with 47% over 32% on Xbox One, and has the most successful launch on consoles to date, beating the Xbox 360 version by around 500 copies.
The Last of Us (-24%) drops from the top after three weeks up top to slot in ahead of Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare (+200%), which has climbed to third from fifteenth with the release of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions.
A small increase in sales fails to keep the Xbox 360 Edition (+5%) of Minecraft from slipping to forth, where a small dip in sales commits the PlayStation 3 Edition (-5%) to seventh.
Call of Duty: Ghosts (+7%) falls one place to fifth, saved somewhat by the release of the final DLC package Nemesis.
Watch Dogs (-11%) plummets four places to sixth and The LEGO Movie Videogame (-11%) drops two to eighth.
Grand Theft Auto V (+3%) slips to ninth ahead of new release Tales of Xillia 2 at tenth.
Falling outside of the top ten for the first time, FIFA 14 (-24%) crashes at fifteenth.
