UK Video Game Charts: Guns Beat Fists
The flavour of violence sitting atop the UK videogames chart (compiled by Gfk Chart-Track) has changed this week with kicking and punching EA Sports UFC replaced at the #1 spot by shooting and killing Sniper Elite 3 from 505 Games.

"Rebellion’s third instalment in the Sniper Elite franchise debuts at No1, straddling Microsoft and Sony current/previous gen platforms, of which PS4/Xbox One make up 65% of console sales units.

"It is the second in the series to be published by 505 Games and the second to debut at No1 (Sniper Elite 2 took 2 weeks at No1 back in weeks 18/19 2012 whereas original Sniper Elite only got to No15 back in week 2 for that title, week 40, 2005). Ubisoft remain at No2 with Watch Dogs (-22%) and last week’s No1 EA Sports UFC drops to No3 (-58%).

"Codemasters take the 2nd highest new entry at No7 with previous gen and PC GRID Autosport’. EA’s 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil drops out of the Top 10 for the first time at No11 (-13%) and right behind we have the 3rd new entry of the week, Activision Blizzard’s Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, in at No12. Completing the new releases within the Top 40 is Bandai Namco’s One Piece: Unlimited World Red at No28."
