UK Sales Chart: Watch Dogs Holds off Murdered: Soul Suspect, Keeps 1st Place

It may have dropped 81% (84% drop on PS4/Xbox One and 68% drop on PS3/Xbox 360) compared to its impressive opening week, but Watch Dogs still managed to finish first in the UK last week, beating out Mario Kart 8 on Wii U and Murdered: Soul Suspect, which finished #2 and #3, respectively, with Murdered just 400 copies behind MK8.

For the last time a Ubisoft title managed to retain first place on the UK charts, you have to go back to 2012 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
