Watch Dogs is still one of the most divisive game releases of 2014, but there's no quibbling with the numbers. Love it or hate it, thrilled or disappointed, eight million copies sold is a huge start for a new franchise. Not to mention a chart success guarantee. What did you make of Aiden Pearce's debut?
On the subject of new franchises, though, Tomodachi Life has sneaked into the Top Ten this week. Nintendo's quirky life sim is is bizarre and banal, but surprisingly fun to dip into little and often. It's also screenshot gold, as you can see above. Yes, that is Reggie and The Cat from Red Dwarf X in the background.
Otherwise expect plenty of familiar faces in the UK Games Charts, as detailed below.
