Titanfall  has claimed the top spot in the UK game charts since its launch on Friday, claiming the title for best-selling opening weekend of 2014 so far.

According to the GfK Chart-Track, the release of the highly anticipated mech-action shooter also contributed to a massive upswing in sales of the Xbox One itself, with sales virtually doubling thanks to the Titanfall Xbox One bundle: 70 percent of Xbox One sales overall were the bundle, and console sales were up just over 96 percent in total.

Dark Souls II  landed in second, boasting a 20 percent increase in opening weekend sales over the original.

South Park: The Stick of Truth, last week’s number one, drops to third.

The rest of the top 10 was rounded out by  The Lego Movie Videogame,  Thief,  FIFA 14,Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare,  Call of Duty: Ghosts,  Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, and Battlefield 4.

Yoshi’s New Island, Nintendo’s latest 3DS platformer, debuted in 12.
