The Force Awakens tops gaming chart for a third week

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been sitting pretty at the top of the UK retail charts for three consecutive weeks now despite a 45% drop in sales compared to last week (it’s still got a couple more weeks to go before pulling level with Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, which enjoyed five weeks at the top).

Elsewhere it was a solid week for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and thanks to a retailer’s event (we’re assuming GAME), Naughty Dog’s action-packed adventure jumped up four places (with a 152% increase in sales). Grand Theft Auto V and Fallout 4 also enjoyed their own promotional bumps. Similarly, 11th and 12th placed games Zoo Tycoon and Kinect Sports re-entered the top twenty thanks to their inclusion in new hardware bundles.

The highest new entry this week is Capcom’s Monster Hunter Generations, with the 3DS title landing ahead of Overwatch in third. Here’s the GfK Chart-Track top ten in full:

1. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens / Warner Bros.
2. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End / Sony
3. Monster Hunter Generations / Capcom
4. Overwatch / Activision Blizzard
5. Grand Theft Auto V / Take 2
6. Doom / Bethesda
7. FIFA 16 / EA
