Super Mario 3D World still being outsold by Knack

PlayStation 3-exclusive Gran Turismo 6 has unsurprisingly made the UK top 10, but at #8 in the chart that has to be a far lower placing than Sony was hoping.

Sales were down five times that of GT5’s launch figures, which can likely be attributed to the PlayStation 4 currently flying off shelves.

Nintendo can’t be best pleased with Knack outselling Super Mario 3D World for a second week running either.

Knack is at #18 while 3D World is at #20. As we mentioned last week though, that’s almost certainly down to Knack being bundled with the PS4 itself.

More despair: Bravely Default – last week’s only other major new release – hasn’t made the top 40 at all. That’s a bit of a shame seeing that Nintendo appeared to be giving the RPG a fair bit of promotion.

Anyway, the UK top 5 looks a bit (read: a lot) like this: Call of Duty: Ghosts still at #1, followed by FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV and GTA V.

Killzone: Shadow Fall holds in the top 10 for a second week at #9.

Forza 5, Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome remain in the chart, but they’re seemingly on their way out currently at #26, #29 and #34 respectively.

  • 3D World is outselling it globally. As of December 1st, 3D World’s sold 710k, and Knack’s at about 270k. It’s annoying how no one mentions that 3D World is doing better globally.

  • It wasn’t mentioned as the article is about this week’s UK chart; not global sales figures for various games.

  • Yes, but they should mention it since some people actually think Knack is doing better globally.
