Gran Turismo Sport is the UK’s best selling game this week, with the series’ first outing on PS4.
Data collected from first week sales show that Gran Turismo Sport enjoyed a better first week overall than the series’ original game and previous entry Gran Turismo 6 for unit sales, but came nowhere near the first week figures of Gran Turismo 5, which sold 3 times as many physical copies when it launched in 2013 for PS3.
Ubisoft’s South Park: The Fractured But Whole debuts behind FIFA 18 at No.3 this week, matching the week 1 sales of hilarious predecessor The Stick of Truth which released in 2014 for PS3 and Xbox 360.
WWE 2K18 enters directly below The Fractured But Whole at No.4. Although sales for WWE 2K18 are down on WWE 2K17, revenue is up largely thanks to the success of Deluxe and Collectors Editions.
Other notable releases in the chart this week include Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Warriors releasing for 3DS and Nintendo Switch at No16, THQ Nordic’s Elex at No.25 and Sold Out’s Rogue Trooper Redux making its debut at No.37.
It’s always worth mentioning that data collected from Chart-Track only accounts for physical sales and does not include digital sales.
