Uncharted: The Lost Legacy holds off Mario + Rabbids in UK charts

But it was close

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy enjoys a second week at No.1 in the UK boxed charts, narrowly out-selling Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.

That is in terms of unit sales. In terms of revenue, Mario + Rabbids is No.1. This is because the game had an average selling price of over 45, versus Uncharted and its 25 price point.

The Ubisoft title is one of many new games in the charts this week, as the release schedule begins to improve following a very quiet summer for boxed software.

Down at No.6 is Sony's Everybody's Golf, which makes its PS4 debut ahead of the boxed release of Ark: Survival Evolved at No.7. That game only narrowly outsold eighth spot, which is where Yakuza Kiwami (also a PS4 exclusive) makes an appearance.

PS4 exclusives account for 50% of the Top Ten.

All those new releases mean that F1 2017 slips down to No.3 following a 49% sales drop week-on-week, with Crash Bandicoot tumbling to its lowest position since its release 10 weeks ago. The game now sits at No.5.

GTA V rises to No.4 after a 28% sales increase.

The Escapists 2 is still in the Top 20, after only dropping 13% in sales during its second week - which is a decent result for a game post-launch week. It currently sits at No.18.

Further down the charts, Maximum Games' Dead Alliance creeps in at No,39, just ahead of the re-release of Resident Evil: Revelations HD on Xbox One and PS4 at No.20.

Next week will be a significant week for the boxed games market, with the launch of Destiny 2.

Here is the GfK/UKIE Top Ten for the week ending September 2nd:

"PS4 exclusives account for 50% of the Top Ten."

Not unless that's some sort of new math. There's only four PS4 exclusives in the top ten(1, 5, 6 and 8). So unless my teachers have lied to me all those years ago that number only amounts to 40% of top ten entries.
