Wipeout: Omega Collection landed on the top of the UK sales chart less than a week after its launch. Tekken 7 claimed the number two spot, and Horizon Zero Dawn is back in the top ten.

Sony's Wipeout: Omega Collection took the top spot on the UK sales chart this week. The game launched on 07 June and was catapulted straight to number one. This is the first game from the Wipeout franchise to top the UK charts. Considering the fact that the franchise has been around since 1995, that's quite an achievement.

Wipeout: Omega Collection is comprised of Wipeout HD, Wipeout HD Fury and Wipeout 2048. SubReal has more details right here. The game dethroned Tekken 7 and sent it to the second place. Rounding off the top three is Dirt 4, developed by Codemasters.

Fourth place this week belongs to an entry I haven't seen on this list in ages. Horizon Zero Dawn is back in the top ten. Probably due to the price cut. Horizon took the fourth spot from Grand Theft Auto V, and pushed it down to number five.

Overwatch's anniversary event wraps up today and the game fell from number two to number six on the software sales chart. Next up we have FIFA 17 and Injustice 2, which fell from number three to number eight during the last week.

The last two entries in the top ten are occupied by Bethesda's games, and not one of them is Prey. The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is a new entry at number nine and, drum roll please, Dishonored 2 is back in the mix at number ten. Oh and speaking of Prey, it went from number six to number 15. The rest of the games in the top 40 that have Bethesda listed in the credits include Doom, Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition.

The top ten looks like this:

1 Wipeout: Omega Collection

3 Dirt 4

4 Horizon Zero Dawn
