Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes number one

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.
