It’s that time again for the UK games chart! Last week saw Lego Star Wars skyrocket to the top with FIFA retaining second place. But I don’t wanna talk about that, I wanna talk about Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
But first, here’s the charts (remember the position of games on this chart is based on physical sales):
|1||LEGO STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS||WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE||–|
|2||–||FIFA 16||EA SPORTS||2|
|5||UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF’S END||SONY COMPUTER ENT.||3|
|6||STAR OCEAN: INTEGRITY AND FAITHLESSNESS||SQUARE ENIX||–|
|7||ROCKET LEAGUE||505 GAMES||6|
|8||GRAND THEFT AUTO V||ROCKSTAR||5|
|9||7 DAYS TO DIE||TELLTALE GAMES||–|
|10||TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION||UBISOFT||12|
|11||RATCHET & CLANK||SONY COMPUTER ENT.||9|
|12||CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III||ACTIVISION||7|
|13||THE TECHNOMANCER||MAXIMUM GAMES||–|
|14||EA SPORTS UFC 2||EA SPORTS||20|
|15||STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT||EA GAMES||8|
|16||MINECRAFT: XBOX EDITION||MICROSOFT||14|
|17||LEGO MARVEL AVENGERS||WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE||13|
|18||MINECRAFT: WII U EDITION||NINTENDO||–|
|19||UEFA EURO 2016 PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER||KONAMI||10|
|20||DESTINY: THE TAKEN KING||ACTIVISION||16|
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness opened at number 6! Considering it’s been receiving average reviews (our review is coming soon by the way), this is really good and shows that there’s an audience for JRPGs. What’s unfortunate is that Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, a game which is definitely better (a review for that game is also coming soon) has dropped off entirely. Which is a shame, because it’s very good.
Anyway, back to Star Ocean. Hopefully the success of this game will encourage Square Enix to put more money into the franchise and give the developers more time to create the next one.
Before I leave you, another thing I find really fascinating is that Overwatch increased in rank this week. This was obviously a reaction to a recent patch the game received which implemented a ranked mode. Clearly a lot of people were waiting for the game to have some sort of ranked matchmaking before purchasing!
