Remedy Entertainment's Quantum Break was the number one retail game in the UK last week.
And it wasn't without competition, either, beating Codemasters' Dirt Rally to the top spot. Quantum Break is, of course, an Xbox One exclusive, though it has also been released on PC.

While a number one in a single market without the inclusion of all digital sales is a minor victory, Microsoft was nevertheless keen to celebrate. Aaron Greenberg, the head of marketing at Xbox, tweeted the news over the weekend, before the official release of Ukie and Gfk Chart-Track's data.
Quantum Break wasn't greeted with unanimous praise, though, with scores from respected outlets occupying both ends of the ten-point scale. Read our Critical Consensus analysis for more.
