Sucker Punch Productions’ “Infamous Second Son” has knocked “Titanfall” from its number one spot in the U.K. The PS4 version of “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” took the number two spot on the U.K. sales chart, securing two PS4 games as the top-selling titles in the country. Though the game also launched on the Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS3, the next-gen PS4 was the most popular platform of choice for “Ground Zeroes” consumers, where 58 percent of its sales were on Sony’s device.

The open world action-adventure game launched worldwide on Friday, March 21 for Sony’s PlayStation 4. The third main entry in the “Infamous” series, “Second Son” has received generally positive reviews, receiving a score of 81.44 percent on GameRankings. “'InFamous Second Son’ is visually stunning with rocking dynamic music to boot, but with its repetitive side-tasks, the finely crafted Seattle streets feel a bit lacking in things to do,” GameTrailers said about the title. “Nevertheless, the game's characters and core story arc holds strong. The varied and eccentric powers give you a lot to experiment with, and you truly feel like a superhero with the city at your fingertips.”

Sales of Respawn’s “Titanfall” fell 73 percent during its second week, which is relatively common for a major release.

According to The Metro UK, these were last week’s sales figures:
