    RPG 7th Dragon III Code: VFD has shot to the top of the Japanese software charts in its first week.
    Sega’s new title outsold Super Mario Maker by almost four times last week, as Nintendo’s DIY game for the Wii U slipped to second.
    Meanwhile, former third place title FIFA 16 disappeared from the Top Ten completely, while the PS3 and PS4 versions of PES 2016 remained stable in seventh and eighth, respectively.
    The only new entry in the software chart was Vita effort Geki-Dimension Tag: Blanc + Neptunia vs. Zombie Gundan, which filled out the podium in number three.
    Over in the hardware rankings, PS4 hung onto its top spot, with sales only falling by 3,000 week-on-week. Second place was filled by the consistently popular New 3DS XL handheld.
    In fact, the hardware Top Ten remained completely unchanged in terms of order from the week previous.
    Here’s the latest Famitsu software Top Ten for the week ending October 18th:


    1. 7th Dragon III Code: VFD (Sega) 3DS – 72,411 (New)
    2. Super Mario Maker (Nintendo) Wii U – 21,793
    3. Geki-Dimension Tag: Blanc + Neptunia vs. Zombie Gundan (Compile Heart) Vita – 20,982 (New)

    Superdata’s worldwide digital games report for September has shown an annual 11 per cent increase in sales.
    Overall the digital games market was worth $5.4bn.
    The biggest growth was seen in digital console game sales, which shot up 29 per cent to $326m. That’s despite the number of console players remaining flat – it’s just that these same users are buying more digitally than ever before, with the average monthly digital outlay up 39 per cent to $132.46.
    Sales of digital console, PC and mobile games were all up, as were F2P MMO and social game revenues. Mobile remained the most lucrative digital sector, accounting for $2bn and up nine per cent. Mobile active user numbers are up 10 per cent year-on-year at 2.2bn.
    The only sector to experience decline was premium MMOs, which fell eight per cent to $213m.
    FIFA 16 was the world’s best-selling digital console game last month, followed by Destiny. Interestingly Superdata reckons two thirds of the latter’s revenues were made up of people buying full versions of the game and not just the Taken King expansion.
    Both Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Mad Max sold stronger digitally on PC than they did on console. Added the report: “Konami’s efforts to release the PC edition of Metal Gear Solid V day-and-date with the console versions paid off in a big way as PC players flocked to the game despite the franchise’s console-focused history.”

    For the second week running, FIFA 16 holds the top spot in this week’s UK charts.
    Sales of EA’s football title dropped 74 per cent, but the game still outperformed Warner Bros’ first foray into the toys-to-life genre.
    LEGO Dimensions is the third toys-to-life game to launch this year, after Disney Infinity 3.0 and Skylanders Superchargers, and outperforms the Week One sales of both of those games.
    It also debuts in second place. It’s the third biggest launch for the toys-to-life sector to date, behind Skylanders Giants and Skylanders Swap Force.
    Meanwhile, 2K’s NBA 2K16 debuts in third place. The basketball title’s Week One sales were 53 per cent up on last year’s entry in the series
    And a new entry in the Tony Hawk series – Pro Skater 5 – debuts at No.12.
    Below is the software Top Ten for the week ending October 2nd:

    FIFA 16 is favourite finish 2015 as the UK’s top selling game, according to Betway.
    EA’s football title currently has odds of 2/5, ahead of second place Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 at 7/2. Third favourite is Fallout 4 (8/1) followed by Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate (9/1) and Halo 5: Guardians (10/1).
    Outside bets include Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 and, amazingly, Spike Lee joint NBA 2K16 and NBA Live 16 all at 50/1. Slightly more generous are the odds for PES 2016, Just Cause 3 and Hitman, which stand at 33/1. The latter seems unlikely, though, thanks to its 2016 release date.
    “FIFA 16 is sure to be at the top of a lot of Christmas lists and we think there’s a good chance this latest version can trump Call of Duty for a second year running,” Betway’s Alan Alger said.
    “PES has been in FIFA’s shadow for the last decade and, although this latest release is touted to be the best for some time, we don’t think there will be a drastic popularity shift just yet.”
    Star Wars: Battlefront doesn’t look like a terrible bet at 14/1.
    Here are the odds in full:

    EA’s FIFA 16 has claimed its obligatory UK No.1 at the first time of asking following its release last Thursday.
    Physical unit sales are down seven per cent year-on-year (and revenue four per cent), although whether that’s an actual decline due to this year’s lightly less enthused critical response or merely symptomatic of the charts’ omission of the presumably growing digital sales pool will frustratingly remain a point of speculation.
    There’s little ambiguity about the shift from last-gen to current-gen, however. Last year the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of FIFA 15 accounted for 45 per cent of week one sales. This year that figure stands at just 19 per cent.
    Activision’s Skylanders Superchargers enters the Top Ten in fourth place, with Chart-Track adding that total sales of the game and its add-ons generated just over £1m throughout the week.
    Elsewhere in the Top Ten Destiny: The Taken King falls one place to No.2 (with sales down 70 per cent), Forza 6 drops one place to No.3 (-46 per cent), Metal Gear Solid V also drops a place to fifth (-31 per cent) while PES 2016 drops three places to No.6 (-55 per cent).
    Here’s the GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 20 for the week ending September 26th:

    1. FIFA 16 (EA)
    2. Destiny: The Taken King (Activision)
    3. Forza 6 (Microsoft)
    4. Skylanders Superchargers (Activision)
    5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Konami)
    6. PES 2016 (Konami)
    7. Mad Max (Warner Bros)
    8. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar)
    9. Call of Duty: Ghosts (Activision)
    10. LEGO Jurassic World (Warner Bros)
    11. Super Mario Maker (Nintendo)
    12. Disney Infinity 3.0 (Disney)
    13. Minecraft: Xbox Edition (Microsoft)
    14. Minecraft: PlayStation Edition (Sony)
    15. Blood Bowl II (Focus Home Interactive)
    16. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition (Microsoft)
    17. Disney Infinity 2.0 (Disney)
    18. Rugby World Cup (Big Ben)
    19. Titanfall (EA)
    20. Until Dawn (Sony)

    The first boxed expansion for Activision’s Destiny debuts at No.1 in the UK, according to data from GfK Chart-Track.

    This is the publisher’s first time at the top spot since Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in Week Six of this year.
    The PlayStation 4 SKU took the lion’s share of sales, claiming 57 per cent of all boxed software for the game – unsurprising given PlayStation’s partnership with Activision for the online shooter.
    Meanwhile the Xbox One SKU claimed 34 per cent, the 360 version took seven per cent and the PS3 edition made up two per cent.
    But The Taken King’s boxed sales represent a mere 16 per cent of Destiny’s initial Week One sales. Destiny shot to No.1 when it hit shelves last September, and became the biggest selling new IP.
    Of course, given that a huge number of people bought a boxed edition of Activision’s online shooter, it’s possible they will have bought The Taken King digitally – meaning that digital sales for the expansion could be considerably bigger.
    There are new games in second and third place, too. Forza Motorsport 6 debuts at No.2, while Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 starts life in the charts at No.3.
    Last week’s No.1, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, falls to fourth place with a 54 per cent decline in sales, while previous fourth place holder Mad Max drops to No.5 as sales dip 45 per cent.
    Below is the UK software Top Ten for the week ending September 19th:
    1. Destiny: The Taken King, Activision
    2. Forza Motorsport 6, Microsoft
    3. Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, Konami
    4. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami
    5. Mad Max, Warner Bros
    6. Super Mario Maker, Nintendo
    7. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
    8. Disney Infinity 3.0, Disney
    9. Rugby League Live 3, Alternative Software
    10. LEGO Jurassic World, Warner Bros

    Super Mario Maker has made quite the impression during its first week on sale in Japan.
    The Wii U exclusive, which sees players construct their own 2D platforming levels from iconic elements of Nintendo’s flagship franchise, shot to the top of the software rankings, selling over 143,000 units.
    Mario’s ascent knocked the latest in fellow iconic Japanese series Metal Gear Solid from the top spot, with The Phantom Pain on PS4 dropping to fourth. The PS3 version of the game sank to sixth.
    Metal Gear Solid V sold almost a combined 500,000 units in its first week on sale in the country, with last week’s figures easily pushing the game over the half-a-million mark.
    Filling the podium space in MGS5’s stead were new entry Monster Hunter Nikki: PokaPoka Felyne Village DX, a spin-off of Capcom’s highly popular multiplayer franchise, and RPG sequel Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, which remained in third place despite sales halving.
    No other new entries made the Top Ten last week, with the charts largely maintaining its order from the previous week, excepting the disappearance of Mario Kart 8 and IS 2: Love and Purge.
    Meanwhile, over in the hardware rankings, Wii U was spurred to the top of the heap by Super Mario Maker, sales more than doubling week-on-week.
    It was followed by the New Nintendo 3DS XL and the former week’s star hardware, the PS4. The sales of the latter platform fell by more than 35,000 as MGS5’s magic began to wear off.
    Here is the software Top Ten for the week ending September 13th:


    1. Super Mario Maker (Nintendo) Wii U – 143,514 (New)
    2. Monster Hunter Nikki: PokaPoka Felyne Village DX (Capcom) 3DS – 52,272 (New)
    3. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (Square Enix) 3DS – 45,954
    4. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Konami) PS4 – 36,765
    5. Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Akaneko-dan / Shiroinu-tai (Level 5) 3DS – 31,399
    6. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Konami) PS3 – 31,112
    7. Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (Nintendo) 3DS – 17,924
