UK sales chart for the week ending on 17 June shows Horizon Zero Dawn is back at number one. Switch exclusive Arms is at number two. Grand Theft Auto V's sales have not been diminished by the Open IV controversy.

So Horizon Zero Dawn is back at number 1 on the UK sales chart this week. That's the second time the beautiful PlayStation 4 exclusive has topped the chart since its release back in March. New Horizon Zero Dawn DLC was revealed at E3 last week. The expansion is named The Frozen Wilds and it will drop sometime in 2017.

Arms, Nintendo's second Switch exclusive title debuted on the second spot on the list. The game was released on Friday, 16 June. This ranking is quite an achievement for a new IP. Arms has had the 4th biggest Switch launch week out of 11 Switch titles so far. It comes in right behind Zelda, Mario and 1-2 Switch. 

Grand Theft Auto V climbed from number five to number three, in spite the drama surrounding Take Two and their cease and desist letter sent to the makers of Open IV modding software recently. An update on that: well, GTA V's user review score on Steam is now "Overwhelmingly Negative", also, there's a petition at Change.org to "Save OpenIV". The petition was started by a user called t0y is cool and it will be delivered to Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive.

That would be the top three guys. Moving on, Dirt 4 let GTA V take its spot and found a new home at number four. Last week's chart topper, Wipeout: Omega Collection now resides at number five.

Just like last week, Tekken 7 is right at Wipeout's heels. The fighter fell from number two all the way down to number six. FIFA 17 holds steady at number 7. Overwatch, Injustice 2 and Rocket League round off the top ten.
