Xbox One doubles 360’s week one UK sales; Forza 5 highest placed exclusive in charts

Microsoft’s brand new Xbox One claimed 80% of the UK’s total hardware sales last week, doubling the week one sales of Xbox 360.

Forza 5 is the highest place Xbox One exclusive at No.5 in the UKIE Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 40 and is joined by two others in the Top 10 – Dead Rising 3 (7th) and Ryse: Son of Rome (10th).

FIFA 14 rockets back into first place following an Xbox One-led 328 per cent sales boost, thanks in no small part to the free digital copy given away with many Xbox Ones which are included in Chart-Track’s numbers, as is the case with Forza.

Nintendo’s 3DS title The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds debuts at No.9 while Sony’s Vita platformer Tearaway manages 26th in its first week.

Angry Birds Star Wars enters the charts in 28th and Little Orbit’s Monster High: 13 Wishes debuts in 30th.
