UK Charts: Rare Replay is First Xbox One Exclusive to Top the Charts

Rare Replay, the compilation of over thirty Rare developed games has become the first Xbox One exclusive to ever top the UK Charts. This may seem unbelievable, but its true. No Xbox One exclusive game has topped the UK Charts since the console launched November 2013. Rare Replay is also the first Rare game to claim the top spot since Banjo-Kazooie on the Nintendo 64.

Rare Replay taps into nostalgia and gives fans a new way to experience many of Rare’s classic titles. From Killer Instinct to Battletoads to Viva Pinata, all of Rare’s hits are here. The one notable exception is Goldeneye 007, as the 007 IP is currently owned by Activision. It also helped that the compilation had no other new competition. LEGO Jurassic World sales fell 21% from last week, allowing Rare Replay to take the top spot.
