On Friday Titanfall dropped onto UK shelves throughout the UK and unsurprisingly has shot directly into first place in the UK gaming charts beating Bandai Namco’s Dark Souls II. Titanfall has also more than doubled the sales of 2014’s current leader FIFA 14, that’s right, doubled. If that wasn’t enough Titanfall has also boosted sales of the Xbox One by 96% which is massive.
Respawn Entertainment’s online-only shooter landed on Xbox One in the US last Tuesday followed shortly by Europe on Friday, along side the game for Xbox One and PC, Microsoft also launched an Xbox One bundle which included Titanfall – what’s now the best selling game in the UK so far this year.
Following the amazing success of Titanfall this week is Dark Souls II which debuts in second place. South Park: The Stick of Truth has fallen two places to third with LEGO The Movie Video Game sticking firmly in fourth place. Thief has dropped from second place into fifth with FIFA 14 in sixth place.
In seventh place is EA’s awesome third person shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare followed by Call of Duty: Ghosts in eighth. In ninth place, somehow, is Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition followed by Battlefield 4 in tenth place.
Yoshi’s New Island also debuted in the charts in twelfth place making it the third biggest week 1 for a Yoshi title behind Yoshi’s Island DS which launched in 2006, and Yoshi’s Story 64 which landed in 1998.
It looks like things are about to change for the Xbox One, let’s see whether InFamous Second Son can pull the same trick for the PlayStation 4 next week.
