Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Ends Crash Bandicoot’s Reign at the Top of UK Sales Chart

The UK Sales Chart welcomes its sixth PS4 exclusive chart-topper with the newly released Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

on August 29, 2017 8:23 PM

The 34th week of the UK Sales chart is in, and finally Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy isn’t the top-Bandicoot. Rather, the top-Bandicoot is a game from the creators of Crash Bandicoot: Naughty Dog, who released last week Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a stand-alone Uncharted experience that stars fan-favorite Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross who debuted in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as the co-antagonist.

The Bandicoot who has been No. 1 seven times this year slipped to No.3, as another new entry, F1 2017, raced into the No.2 slot. Rounding out the top five is another new release in Madden NFL 18 and the always top-five present Grand Theft Auto V.

According to Games Industry, while The Lost Legacy performed well enough to earn the chicken-dinner, it sold less than half the number of copies (at retail in the UK) Uncharted 4 did. However, when you take into consideration the game was originally DLC, and doesn’t feature the iconic Nathan Drake on its cover, that’s not as bad as it sounds.

Meanwhile, F1 2017  and Madden NFL 18 sold comparatively to last year’s installment, while Team17’s The Escapists (which came in at No.12) debuted this week with sales 379% bigger than its predecessor.

Volition’s Agents of Mayhem continued in its second week with another underwhelming performance, falling from No.4 to No.13.

Below, you can view the full Top 40 for Week 34 2017 (the week ended on August 26th). As always, it’s important to remember that the following chart is specific to retail sales in the UK, and does not feature digital sales of any kind.
