So a game called Watch Dogs released last week, then.
I'm sure you know that already, because apparently pretty much everyone in the UK bought a copy by the looks of the latest gaming charts, which proclaim that Ubisoft's sandbox is the biggest-selling new IP launch in British history. Most of you probably received your copy before our review code arrived too, but I'll put the finishing touches on our final verdict soon. Fun, but a bit too serious and far too flabby for its own good.
However, it's not the only big success story of last week. Mario Kart 8 has screeched straight to second place, the first Wii U game to do so since the console launched. The free game promotion didn't hurt, and neither did the fact that it's ruddy marvellous. A well-deserved and long-overdue milestone for Nintendo's console.
Otherwise it's business as usual - we've got the official UK top ten after the break.
