Sony’s Gran Turismo Sport has ended FIFA 18’s three week run at no.1. The eagerly awaited racer had a stronger launch than 2013’s GT6, but couldn’t beat GT5’s week one sales.
FIFA 18 falls to #2. FIFA 17 only managed a three-week run as well, coincidentally, toppled by EA’s own Battlefield 1.
At #3 it’s South Park: The Fractured But Whole. The crude cartoon RPG matches 2014’s The Stick of Truth for week one sales, which is an encouraging start.
Chart-Track also reports sales of WWE 2K18 – in at #4 – were down over WWE 2K17, but revenue was higher due to the popularity of the deluxe and collector’s editions.
Warner Bros. Middle-earth: Shadow of War holds onto middle ground at #5.
The Evil Within 2 remains in the top ten at #6, Destiny 2 drops a single place to #7, GTA V is at #8, while Forza Motorsport 7 shifts to #9. Crash Bandicoot clings in at #10.
LEGO Worlds and Forza Horizon 3 depart the top ten, but we don’t doubt that both will be back during the run-up to Christmas.
Fire Emblem Warriors is the next highest new entry, arriving at #16. The Switch version was the biggest selling, and by quite some margin.
Despite some less-than-positive reviews, THQ’s open-world RPG Elex made #25. It also managed to scrape into the PS4 top 20.
Rogue Trooper Redux turns up for duty at #37. Fellow retro revamp Syberia – an adventure game dating back to 2002 – also shows its face at #30 in the Switch chart.
