UK Video Game Chart: Ratchet & Clank retains No.1 for a second week - Ratchet & Clank (2016) for PS4 News

Ratchet & Clank has held on to the UK video game chart No.1 spot for a second week, with only a 49 per cent drop off in sales week-on-week, reports Chart-Track.

Insomniac's remake is the first Sony title to top the chart for two weeks straight since The Last of Us: Remastered back in 2014. It's also the seventh biggest first-party launch for Sony.

Chart-Track also points out that Sony's PS4 exclusive games have now spent eight weeks at the top of the All Formats Chart, whilst Microsoft's exclusives for Xbox One have managed just five weeks.

The release of Black Ops 3's Eclipse DLC and associated retailer promotions have also helped the shooter surge 82 per cent up, moving up five places into second spot – its highest since it last topped the chart in week 7.

Nintendo's Yo-Kai Watch, meanwhile, is the only new release this week, debuting at No.14. The lack of new releases also meant there was a chance for other titles to climb thanks to retailer pushes ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend, with Lego Marvel Avengers up to No.6, GTA 5 to No.8, and Far Cry Primal returning to the Top 10 at No.9.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Gearbox's Battleborn should have enough about it to claim a No.1 for publisher 2K, though its release is in such close proximity to next week's Uncharted 4 and DOOM that it could hinder sales as gamers wait.
