Dropping 36% in its second week on the market, Sniper Elite 3 from Rebellion and 505 Games managed to hold onto 1st place in the UK sales charts, keeping Watch Dogs in 2nd for a third week. Elsewhere, the two soccer games rose last week, with FIFA 14 jumping to 3rd, while 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil re-entered the top 10 and finished in 8th.

As for new releases, there were three of them on PlayStation Vita, but only MotoGP 14, which is available on multiple platforms, managed to finish in the top 40 (it was 28th overall). If you look at just the PlayStation Vita charts though, Child of Light was 1st, Ratchet & Clank Trilogy was 2nd, and MotoGP 14 was 12th.

Here’s the top 20 selling games in the UK for the week ending July 5, 2014, according to GfK Chart-track:

  1. Sniper Elite 3 (down 36%)
  2. Watch Dogs (down 20%)
