Grand Theft Auto V has retaken the top spot of the chart, becoming the UKâ€™s best selling game of all time in the process. Sales generated during last Tuesdayâ€™s PS4/Xbox One launch alone were enough to push it past Call of Duty: Black Ops, Chart-Track reports.
Ubisoft also has a reason to be cheerful. Far Cry 4 – which entered at #2 – has become the most successful iteration of the franchise in terms of week one sales.
To make way for the above Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare falls to #3. FIFA 15 holds onto #4 and then at #5 Dragon Age: Inquisition makes an appearance. Chart-Track claims sales were almost equal to that of Dragon Age II.
Assassinâ€™s Creed: Unity drops from #2 to #6 while WWE 2K15 is on the rise from #20 to #7 due to the new PS4/Xbox One versions.
LEGO Batman 3, Minecraft: PlayStation Edition and Halo: Master Chief Collection round off this weekâ€™s top ten.
Leaving the top ten are Assassinâ€™s Creed: Rouge (now at #12), Destiny (#13) and Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 (#19). Also spare a thought for Alien: Isolation which falls all the way from #15 to #36.
Escape Dead Island, Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show are, somewhat predictably, top 40 no shows.
Watch_Dogs on Wii U also failed to set the charts alight. It limps in at #14 in the Wii U chart, outsold by launch title FIFA 13. Now that’s ruff (rough) going.
Got GTA V on PS4 over the weekend. Viewing the side-by-side comparisons it seems much better than the PS3 version, but based on my foggy memory it doesn’t seem like a huge visual leap, so I’m not really certain I want to play it to completion again.
I think the biggest issue is that the controls (on foot anyway) all feel quite clumsy and last gen. They’ve polished the visuals and upped the traffic, but still all feels a bit clunky. That all said, it was a great game to begin with and if you didn’t play it on the last gen consoles, unmissable.
