UK retail #1 for No Man's Sky

Hello Games' explorer becomes Sony's biggest ever new IP launch on PS4

No Man's Sky has rocketed straight to the top of the UK's retail charts in its first week, becoming Sony's biggest ever new IP launch on the PS4. Despite being plagued by launch issues on both PS4 and PC, and suffering from a huge, spoiler-filled leak, the small team at Hello Games has captured the imaginations of a raft of PlayStation owners, with Uncharted 4 the only Sony-published PS4 title to perform better in its launch week.

The rest of the retail top ten is full of familiar, reshuffled names, including Uncharted 4 itself and the venerable GTA V, which slips to second after last week's number one.
