...but fails to top the sales of its predecessor

There is some good news, and some bad news for Square Enix with the weekly British game charts. Good news first, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided captured first spot on both the all formats and individual formats charts (top two spots), but less stellar is the fact that its predecessor Human Revolution "had a much stronger week 1" according to Chart-Track. Clearly there were far more PS3 and Xbox 360 units out there in 2011 then there are PS4 and Xbox One units now, but it's still not a great sign.

A couple of other new releases did well as Madden NFL 17 managed a surprising 5th, with the console release of Assetto Corsa coming in at 8th. Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom also performed realtively strongly with 10th spot on the all formats chart. Quantum Break raced up to 16th spot (+623%) thanks to retailer hardware bundles.
