Sunset Overdrive fails to derail FIFA 15 in this week's UK charts

Sponsored Links

We're used to FIFA reigning over UK charts like, well, rain over UK chaps (and chapettes), but this is plainly ridiculous. FIFA 15 is up to six weeks in a row already as the British best-seller, seeing off one major launch after another like it just doesn't care - and it probably doesn't. The latest victim? Insomnaic's Sunset Overdrive on Xbox One, which settles for second place.

After debuting 7th, in its second week Wii U hell-raiser Bayonetta 2 is alarmingly AWOL after failing to stay in the top 40. In contrast The Evil Within holds steady in fourth, with the rest of the top ten made up by big hitters like Destiny, Shadow of Mordor and Forza Horizon 2. And of course, the Minecrafts. After stowing safely in the top ten for a few weeks, Alien: Isolation finds itself dragged down to 13th along with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in 15th.

For the full top ten and more on this week's new releases (and the spectacular return of the customary music video), point your good selves beyond the break.
Despite its five-star rail-grinding madness, Sunset Overdrive and seven other new releases are staring at the big 15 on the back of FIFA's shirt. WWE 2K15 manages to bodyslam into 5th, but action-RPG Lords of the Fallen, er, falls short of the top ten in 11th.

The other new entries in this week's UK charts are closer to the other end of the top 40, with retail releases The Walking Dead Season 2 in 23rd and Farming Simulator 15 in 25th. The final trio of newbies barely made it in, with Walking Dead GOTY in 36th, MX vs. ATV Supercross in 38th, and Vita online combatant Freedom Wars in 39th.
