Sniper Elite 3 blasts through second week as UK number one

Stay on target.

Rebellion's shooter Sniper Elite 3 is the UK's number one game for a second week running, according to data from Chart-Track.

Ubisoft's open-world hacking game Watch Dogs is second for a third week running. FIFA 14 is third. EA's other football game 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil rises to eight. Nintendo 3DS game Tomodachi Life rises five places to 11.

Respawn shooter Titanfall is fourth. Machine Games' Wolfenstein: The New Order is fifth. Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Ghosts is sixth. EA Sports UFC is seventh. Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is ninth and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is tenth.

A few new Vita games came out last week, but they failed to make an impression on the all-formats chart. Ubisoft's Child of Light was the best-selling Vita game last week. Behind that was Sony's Ratchet & Clank Trilogy and behind that the Vita version of Pqube's MotoGP 14.

As always, it's worth remembering that Chart-Track doesn't include digital sales in its data.

The top 10 in full:

  1. Sniper Elite 3
  2. Watch Dogs
  3. FIFA 14
  4. Titanfall
  5. Wolfenstein: The New Order
  6. Call of Duty: Ghosts
