With Yo-kai Sangokushi and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 continuing to perform well, Far Cry Primal had to settle for third place in its debut, moving 25,300 copies on PlayStation 4.

The previous week’s big new PS4 game, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, suffered a big drop, selling just 10,400 copies and finishing in 6th place behind Dark Souls 3. It didn’t affect the PS4’s standing in the hardware chart though, as it managed to defeat the New 3DS LL once again.

Meanwhile, the Xbox One saw a rare game in the top 20, with Quantum Break moving 3,100 copies and placing in 19th.
