PlayStation 4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human has beaten Xbox One console exclusive State of Decay 2 to the top of the UK chart.

The latest game from Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls led by the controversial David Cage, pipped State of Decay to first place.

Microsoft’s exclusive, meanwhile, was also released for Windows 10 PCs, though these sales aren’t counted as UK numbers company Chart-Track does not track digital PC copies. And it’s worth noting a lot of people who are playing State of Decay 2 will be doing so via the Xbox Game Pass, which is download only.

On console sales alone, then, Detroit came out on top – although with fewer sales than Beyond did when it first launched for PlayStation 3 in 2013. The original State of Decay launched as a downloadable game, so equivalent sales figures are not available to compare.

Elsewhere, Dark Souls Remastered entered the chart in third place this week. 79 per cent of physical sales were for PS4, while 21 per cent were for Xbox One.

The only other new entry was sci-fi FPS Space Hulk Deathwing, which arrived for PS4 in 19th place.

The full top 10 lies below:

  1. Detroit: Become Human

  3. Dark Souls Remastered
  4. FIFA 18
