The Phantom Pain claims top spot in weekly charts

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has landed Konami their first No.1 of the year. It also marks the iconic series return to the top of the all formats chart for the first time since 2008. The Phantom Pain’s success is enough to put it at 3rd place in terms of first week sales in 2015 (behind Batman: Arkham Knight & The Witcher III: Wild Hunt). Unable to really threaten the No.1 spot ahead of Metal Gear, Warner Bros post-apocalyptic open world Mad Max still makes a solid start driving in at No.2 in its debut week.

After winning the battle of the format exclusives and claiming No1 last week Gears of War: Ultimate Edition makes way for the new guys dropping to No.3. It however remains ahead of Sony’s survival horror title Until Dawn, which falls two places to No.4, while Disney Infinity 3.0 also slides two spots to No.5. The rest of the Top 10 has a somewhat familiar look the Top 40 welcomes another debutant this week with Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse making it to No.35 in its opening week.
