Days Gone goes full throttle, becoming the UK’s biggest launch of 2019 so far

Even though it was met by not-exactly-glowing reviews, Sony’s Days Gone was able to claim the UK chart top spot, forcing Mortal Kombat 11 to settle for #2.

The most impressive thing here is that MK11 launched on Tuesday, whereas Days Gone arrived on Friday – after just two days on sale the PS4 exclusive was able to become the fastest selling release of 2019 so far. Sales weren’t a patch on God of War or Marvel’s Spider-Man, however. notes physical sales of MK11 were down 43% over MKX, yet it was able to outperform 2017’s Injustice 2. A resounding 71% of MK11 sales also came from the PS4 version.

FIFA 19 dropped to #3, RDR2 rose to #4 enjoying a small sales boost, and then at #5 it’s Ubisoft’s The Division 2.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe moved up to #6, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice fell one position to take #7, while Forza Horizon 4 shifted from #16 to #8.

The ever popular NSMB. U Deluxe remained at #9.

Then at #10 we finally find last week’s chart-topper – the surprisingly good World War Z.

After arriving at a respectable #9 last week, Snooker 19: The Official Video Game dropped to #21. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and Team 17’s My Time at Portia weren’t as fortunate, both departing the top 40 after just one week on sale.
