The Division and Far Cry Primal rescue March for retail

Ubisoft was the hero on the High Street last month, with The Division and Far Cry Primal topping the UK charts.

The Division was by far and away the biggest seller of the month, shifting almost half a million physical copies during the period.

1.72m boxed games were sold during March 2016, a rise of 2.6 per cent over the same period the year before. In total, the market generated 57.7m from software sales, a rise of more than five per cent.

This is all courtesy of GfK Entertainment/UKIE sales figures.

The third best-selling title of the month belonged to EA, with a strong return for its UFC franchise. There were four EA games in the Top Ten in total (with FIFA 16, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Star Wars Battlefront making up the other three). But it was Ubisoft that was comfortably the most successful publisher of the period.

There is also a rare appearance from a Wii U game, as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD makes it to No.9.

Below is the software Top Ten for March:

1. The Division, Ubisoft
2. Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft
3. UFC 2, EA
4. FIFA 16, EA
5. Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Activision
6.Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
