Even though it was met by not-exactly-glowing reviews, Sonyâ€™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 â€“ 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.
GI.biz notes physical sales of MK11 were down 43% over MKX, yet it was able to outperform 2017â€™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 itâ€™s Ubisoftâ€™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 weekâ€™s chart-topper â€“ 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 17â€™s My Time at Portia werenâ€™t as fortunate, both departing the top 40 after just one week on sale.
