For a fourth straight week, Call of Duty: WWII is the best selling game in the UK.
The top 3 titles in the UK this week all receive a bump in sales thanks to a week of Black Friday sales which saw overall software sales rise by 89% over last week and 53% in revenue. With so many games bundled up for promotion, console sales also saw a rise of 3% over week 46 of 2016, with the Xbox One and PS4 accounting for 89% of console sales this past week, while the PS4 sold more units than its close rival.
As a result of those promotions, FIFA 18 is up to No.2 and PS4 exclusive Gran Turismo Sport is up 9 places to No.3, the rise of both titles is enough to knock the heavily criticised Star Wars Battlefront 2 down to No.4, following its debut last week at No.2.
Other notable games to benefit from Black Friday promotions include Bethesda duo Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus which is up 11 places to No.7 and Fallout 4, up 14 places to No.9.
New entries inside the top 40 this week include a couple of Sony’s first party games with Knowledge is Power debuting at No.14 and Supermassive Games’ detective drama Hidden Agenda arriving behind it at No.15, both of which, utilise Sony’s Playlink as part of its gameplay.
On a final note, it’s always worth pointing out that GFK Chart-Track stats only account for physical sales and do not include digital sales.
