on August 22, 2016 6:59 AM

Today GfK Chart-Track released its weekly ranking and analysis, and Codemasters’ F1 2016 took the top spot, while, No Man’s Sky slipped into second place during its second week on the shelves.

‘F1 2016’ launches straight into pole position replacing ‘No Man’s Sky’ (-81%) at No1.

Launching 5 weeks later than its predecessor, sales are down 32% on F1 2015. ‘Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ (+13%) climbs up a place to No3 with promotions helping to give it a boost. There is little change in the Top 10 with a host of new releases not due out until next week. However outside the Top 10 the most notable climber is EA’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’ (+90%), which leaps back into the Top 40 at No27.

No Man’s Sky is the second biggest release for the PS4, topped only by Uncharted 4 which dropped down 76% on its second week, so this kind of weekly drop is not entirely unexpected.

Bad at video games, decent at writing.
