‘Destiny 2’ sweeps in to No1, becoming the biggest launch of the year so far. Released on Wednesday 6th September, almost 3 years after the original, Activision Blizzard and Bungie’s online-only shooter pushes ‘Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’ (-49%) off top spot, down one place to No2.

Launched across Xbox One and PS4, 58% of sales go to Sony’s format and 42% to Microsoft’s. The original, which was also released on PS3 and Xbox 360, saw Sony’s formats account for 51% and Microsoft’s formats 49%. With the new Xbox One X only 2 months away, a retailer price promotion on the original Xbox One S hardware means bundled titles jump up the chart; most notably ‘Forza Horizon 3’(+79%) up from No10 to No3, ‘Fallout 4’ (+102%) up from No14 to No5, ‘Dishonored 2’ (+129%) up from No17 to No8, ‘Doom’ (+132%) up from No19 to No9 and ‘Minecraft: Xbox One Edition’ (+117%) up from No24 to No11.

There are new entries this week for ‘Knack II’ at No12, ‘Monster Hunter Stories’ at No21 and ‘The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+’ for Nintendo Switch at No36, while ‘Lego Worlds’ (+21%) climbs 2 places to No14, boosted by the release of a Nintendo Switch version.

Launching the same day as Destiny 2 was pretty mental, to be fair, as well as it being FIFA month and all that. Should've done a Crash and launched in the summer, or closer to Christmas for thosw kids-bundle deals.

Makes sense in a way, since this is not a numbered Uncharted title, and D2 is also available on Xbox (we're talking about the UK after all, where XO is still relevant).

I'm hoping it wasn't a high cost project for them, and that it can push a steady flow of units throughout the remainder of the year with its reduced price and family oriented nature - cap it off by bundling it in with Crash Bandicoot and/or Ratchet & Clank and hopefully they'll see some value in it.

Jokes aside, I'd like to see a Knack 3. The second is such a massive improvement over the first in every conceivable way that I honestly feel it deserves one more entry just to see where they take it.

Destiny 2 is the biggest launch of the year so far, but its first week sales are almost 58% down compared with the original.

Oh yeah, it absolutely makes sense, just feel bad for Naughty Dog if anything. They need to stop releasing games just before massively popular, multiplayer shooters, ha.

Also, didn't see this in OP - Destiny 2 sales are 58% down compared to the original.

If you looked at any Amazon chart for example you see that Destiny 2 wasn't doing as good as Destiny 1, never understood how Activision was saying pre-orders were better than the first game...

Any game will eventually get knocked off the top spot though, that's not the best gauge for success. Lost Legacy has sold incredibly well, especially considering its origins as an intended story expansion.

In regards to hardware driving software sales, the charts are starting to get into 'early Christmas present hoarding' territory for the UK. Guarantee a lot of those Xbox One S bundles are being shoved away until December. Expecting to see some ambient chart rises from Switch first party software (Zelda BOTW, Splatoon 2) once Mario Odyssey releases in October.

The timing of Destiny 1 being able to hit the old system while having new console owners jump on the train was perfect....this wasnt the case this time.

And people who were open minded on D1, played it and didnt like it probably arent returning for the sequel.

Hopefully this will mean Sony won't give Knack the time of day anymore and instead of a third game, we'll get a sequel to a first-party platforming IP that was actually good. Like Jumping Flash!. Or Jak & Daxter. Or Ape Escape. Or Puppeteer.

While true, digital won't completely recover those sales, you do have to factor in that the PC release was delayed as well.

Weaker retail sales with stronger digital and delayed release on a major digital platform will make this launch look weak.

Also something different, I wonder if we get anything on hardware sales for the week. Was fun seeing somewhat weekly updates for hardware increases last year.

Totally called it...



Hopefully this will mean Sony won't give Knack the time of day anymore and instead of a third game, we'll get a sequel to a first-party platforming IP that was actually good. Like Jumping Flash!. Or Jak & Daxter. Or Ape Escape. Or Puppeteer.

Knack 2 is about on the same level as all of those franchises you've named in terms of gameplay quality imo. :shrugs:

Irony.

D1 had a 20/30 % digital sales?

But Knack 2 isn't bad :(

I do think that other Sony franchises deserved sequels more than knack tho.
