UK Chart: Grand Theft Auto V Becomes UK All-Time Best Selling

Grand Theft Auto V races back to the top of the chart with the release of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions. Before this week it was the highest grossing title in the UK, but new versions means it has now sold the most copies of any game in the UK.

Despite further loss of sales, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (-41%) is at third, but is ahead of FIFA 15 (+25%), which sticks at fourth.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is another new release at fifth. It closely follows the launch sales of the last instalment Dragon Age II in 2011.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity drops four places to sixth.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions give WWE 2K15 (+554%) a massive boost of sales which propels it’s chart position to seventh.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham and Minecraft PlayStation Edition fall to eighth and ninth respectively.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection falls from third to tenth, ahead of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (+204%), which is back up to tenth thanks to new Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.

UK Chart: Grand Entrance

Grand Theft Auto: V enters the UK chart in first place, as expected, breaking all UK game launch records to date.

GTAV is the fastest selling game at launch, with more copies sold in week one than all previous GTA titles combined, including more than twice the sales of Grand Theft Auto IV and around 250,000 more than Call of Duty: Black Ops. Rockstar’s latest has already claimed twenty-fourth best selling game of all time after just five days on sale, gathering 89% of all games sold in the week. Xbox 360 is the preferred console, with 57% of the share against PlayStation 3.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is another new release at second, ahead of the release of FIFA 14 next week.

The Last of Us (+536%) has been bundled with consoles to raise sales significantly and take it to third in the chart.

Saint’s Row IV (-45%) ends a run of four consecutive weeks at the top of the chart by falling to fourth. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist (-8%) drops one place to fifth ahead of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition (+1%), which gains sales but stays at sixth.

Dropping sales and places in the chart, Diablo III (-49%) collects at seventh and Disney Infinity (-20%) at eighth.

Retailer promotions propel Aliens: Colonial Marines (+913%) to ninth as Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix (-70%) drops eight places to tenth.

Interesting to find that all but GTA V in the top ten make up just 4% of weekly sales.

Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning is the last new release this week at twenty-second.
