The domino effect also shifts FIFA 16 down one place to No.3, ahead of new entry WWE 2K16 at No.4. Minecraft: Story Mode spends its first week on the chart at No.5, while mainstay Grand Theft Auto 5 drops one place to No.6.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection slips three positions down to No.7, while Ubisoft's Watch Dogs re-enters the top ten--likely due to being included in a console bundle--moving from No.12 to take position at No.8.
