Take-Two takes control of UK top ten

Even with sales down 79% over launch week, FIFA 17 continues to occupy the UK chart’s top spot.

This means Mafia III has to settle for #2. Sales were up 58% over the six-year-old Mafia II, although Mafia III’s predecessor did manage to claim #1.

With three other games in the top ten alone, we doubt Take-2 are too bothered. When going up against FIFA, you don’t expect to come out on top.

Forza Horizon 3 falls to #3, GTAV rises to #4 – up all the way from #10 – and then at #5 it’s the ever popular Rocket League.

Take-Two’s Bioshock: The Collection drops two places to #6, XCOM 2 is at #7, Pro Evo 2017 slips to #8 while Fallout 4 rises four positions to make #9.

Good old Minecraft: Xbox Edition then rounds off the top ten.

The Wii U-exclusive Paper Mario: Color Splash is the next highest new entry, jumping in at #14.

Ride 2 made #20 while Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide joins the rat race at #34.

The 3DS’s Mario Party: Star Rush failed to make the top 40 meanwhile, having to settle for #5 in the 3DS chart.
