Final Fantasy XV sees second strongest UK launch in the series

Road trip adventure Final Fantasy XV is off to an excellent start, becoming the second fastest-selling title in the series behind 2010’s FF XIII. It wasn’t able to dislodge FIFA 17 from the top of the UK chart, though, settling for #2 instead.

Unsurprisingly, the PS4 version was the biggest selling. It takes #1 in the individual format chart, with the Xbox One iteration at #14. That’s a pretty large gap.


Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare falls to #3, Battlefield 1 is at #4 and then at #5 we find Forza Horizon 3.

Watch_Dogs 2 holds onto #6, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End moves up one position to #7 while Pokemon Moon and Sun occupy #8 and #9 respectively.

Minecraft: Xbox One Edition then rounds of this week’s top ten.

The next highest new entry after FFXV is Ubisoft’s Steep at #24. Chart-Track claims it’s the fourth fastest-selling winter sports game, beating SSX Tricky. Maybe if Ubisoft had sorted out some pre-launch reviews it would have fared a little better.

The 3DS’s Super Mario Maker made #25. 7th Dragon III Code VFD and Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse missed out on top 40 positions, and by quite some margin it seems – they entered the 3DS chart at a lowly #26 and #40 respectively. Picross 3D Round 2 meanwhile made #29 in the 3DS top 50.

Going back to the UK top 40, Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure showed its face at #32 while Battleborn re-entered at #40. The Borderlands alike was spotted on the high street for as little as £5 last week. Also: £2.99 pre-owned at GAME.
