Xbox One hardware jumps 96% on Titanfall launch

Titanfall is comfortably this week’s UK No.1, and boost Xbox One hardware sales by almost 100 per cent.

70 per cent of all Xbox One consoles sold last week came bundled with Titanfall, Chart-Track says.

Titanfall is EA’s first No.1 that isn’t a FIFA game for over a year. The last non-FIFA EA game to top the charts was Crysis 3 back in the first week of March last year.

It means the team at Bandai Namco had to settle for No.2 with its cult RPG Dark Souls II, which saw a launch sales improvement of 20 per cent over the original.

Also new this week is Yoshi’s New Island on 3DS. The game debuted outside of the Top Ten at No.12, and is the third biggest week one sales performance for a Yoshi title, behind Yoshi’s Island DS and Yoshi’s Story on the N64.

All of this means South Park: The Stick of Truth slips to third spot after its one week at the top. The comical RPG from Ubisoft suffered only a 47 per cent drop in sales, which is actually quite a decent result for a game’s second week sales.
