No Man's Sky Sony's 2nd biggest ever PS4 launch in UK

Stellar performance.

No Man's Sky has done huge business in the UK, topping the sales chart.

No Man's Sky is Sony's second biggest ever PlayStation 4 launch behind Uncharted 4, Chart-Track said. Remember, that's physical sales only. No Man's Sky also came out in download form on PS4 and on PC.

Hello Games' space title is fifth behind Destiny (PS4), Watch Dogs (PS4), The Getaway (PS2) and The Last of Us (PS3) in terms of new intellectual property across all publishers and Sony formats, Chart-Track added.

It's a huge sales success for Hello Games and No Man's Sky, which is also the biggest game release on Steam in 2016 so far. At the time of publication No Man's Sky had 46,485 people playing concurrently - behind only Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2.

Here's the top 10:

  1. No Man's Sky
  2. Grand Theft Auto 5
  3. Overwatch
  4. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  5. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  6. Rocket League
  7. FIFA 16
  8. Doom
  9. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
  10. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
