Battlefield outpaces Bloodborne in the UK

From Software's PS4 exclusive falls 22,000 sales short of number one

EA's Battlefield Hardline is still the UK's number one game, despite a stiff challenge from the critically lauded PlayStation 4 exclusive, Bloodborne.

According to the UKIE Games Charts, compiled by Gfk Chart-Track, From Software's latest release missed out on the top spot by just 22,500 units - which is still very impressive, when you consider that it came so close on a single platform.

Battlefield Hardline didn't perform as well as its predecessor, Battlefield 4, in its first week, but its second week sales didn't deteriorate by the same margin either. EA's tentpole franchise was rewarded with another week at number one.

The only other new release was 2K Games' Borderlands: The Handsome Collection in third - confirming once again that relaunching older games can be very smart business.

An exclusive falls short for only 22k copies to a multy-platform one? That's a really good number.

Somewhat expected it to be this way, Bloodborne is important enough to battle multiplatform titles.
