It’s almost the end of Q1 and this week there are 6 new entries within the Entertainment Software Top 40 (Units), 4 of which take the Top 4. In comparison, this week last year there was only 1 new release (EA’s ‘Mass Effect Andromeda’) and that outsold the week 1 for all 6 from this week. Debuting at No1 this week is Ubisoft’s long-awaited ‘Sea of Thieves’ Xbox One box release.
EA’s ‘Burnout Paradise Remastered’ for PS4/Xbox One is a remaster of 2008’s 360/PS3 original, and claims No1 this week, just like ‘Bunout Paradise’ did back in week 4, 2008. ‘Burnout’ as a franchise has existed since the first Criterion-developed/Acclaim-published game launched in 2001 on PS2.
