Valve's Index VR Kit holds steady at sixth place, while No Man's Sky from Hello Games rises one place to No.7 following the launch of the Outlaws update. DayZ from Bohemia Interactive and Offworld Industries' Squad return to the Top Ten in No.8 and ninth respectively. Finally, Call of Duty: Black Ops III dropped to tenth from last week's No.7.
