The All Formats chart receives a much needed boost with 2K/Take 2’s Evolve leading the pack of new releases and taking the No.1 crown. Xbox One just edges the format share by a mere 1% with fewer than 400 sales between the two Gen 8 versions, while PC accounts for just 3% of boxed units.

For Take 2 it’s their first char- topping title that’s not part of the Grand Theft Auto franchise since Bioshock Infinite back in March 2013.

With the release of new Nintendo 3DS & 3DS XL consoles giving a 57% boost to hardware this week, it’s no surprise that two new 3DS titles debut in the Top Five. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D lands at No.2 and is the biggest-selling single format title of the week.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is forced down to third place despite promotions driving strong sales.

The second monster-hunting title in the chart this week is the aptly named Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which makes its mark at No.4. The title’s week one sales are an impressive 95% up on predecessor Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate as the series starts to gain real traction in the West.

Grand Theft Auto V and FIFA 15 are both down three places to No.5 and No.6 respectively.

A colossal sales push driven by retailer promotions pushes Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 up two places to No.7.

Familiar face Minecraft: Xbox Edition is at No.8, although Minecraft: PlayStation Edition slips to No.11.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Destiny round off the Top 10 at No.9 and No.10.
