In another quiet week, Grand Theft Auto V finished in 1st place on the UK chart for the first time since March 2015. Initially released over 150 weeks ago, this is the 9th time it’s reached #1.

Elsewhere, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was in second, ending up “just a handful of sales” behind Grand Theft Auto V. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which could have broken a LEGO record with a 6th straight first place finish, settled for third.
