Rare take the top spot

***Insert fan fare here***

Rare Replay is the studio’s first UK chart-topper since Banjo-Kazooie on N64 in 1998 (also included in Rare replay)


Rare Replay is also the Xbox One’s first exclusive chart-topper (Titanfall hit the top spot too, but was also released simultaneously on PC).

That’s not all they’ve achieved so far, Rare Replay (released at £19.99) is the first retail budget game to reach number one for six years – since Wii Fit Plus back in 2009.

Rare’s next game is Sea of Thieves, due out on PC and Xbox One in 2016. Will it be Deja Vu and take the top spot like its predicessor?

One thought on “Rare take the top spot”

  1. Banjo Kazooie 1 and 2 plus Conkers Bad Fur Day are worth the asking price alone, yes there are a few games on there that don’t hold up so well nowadays but the value for money from this compilation is ridiculous.
    I’m not surprised it’s number 1 in sales as it has something for everyone and is only £20.
