No Man’s Sky has proven to be incredibly popular in the UK, topping the sales charts in its first week of release.
Developed by Hello Games, No Man’s Sky is now the 2nd biggest PS4 launch in the UK behind Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
It’s important to remember that this only takes into account physical sales, let alone digital downloads across PS4 and PC.
Chart Track has confirmed that No Man’s Sky managed to outsell both Destiny and Watch Dogs on PS4, which is a huge achievement for such a small indie studio.

In addition to selling gangbusters on console, No Man’s Sky is also the biggest Steam release of 2016 thus far.
No Man’s Sky currently has over 46,000 concurrent players on Valve’s platform, standing behind the likes of DOTA 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2.
The people at Hello Games have really outdone themselves, and we can’t wait to see what they have planned for the future.
We gave No Man’s Sky a respectable 7/10 in our review, describing it as an “incredible technical achievement” with a gameplay structure that failed to feel “deep or rewarding” after several hours of play.
