It was Call of Duty: Modern Warfareâ€™s destiny to topple FIFA 20 from the UK chart top spot. Today, we can consider that destiny fulfilled.
This weekâ€™s chart news comes from GI.biz, who reports physical sales of Modern Warfare were 39% higher than Black Ops 4, but far lower than WWII. However, it appears digital downloads have ushered it closer to meeting WWIIâ€™s combined physical and digital launch week sales.
GI.biz claims Modern Warfareâ€™s sales were split 62% on PS4 and 38% on Xbox One.Â Â
FIFA 20 drops to #2. Then at #3 itâ€™s the universally panned WWE 2K20. Unsurprisingly given the gameâ€™s poor reception, sales were down 31% over last yearâ€™s iteration.
Itâ€™s another new arrival at #4 â€“ Obsidianâ€™s The Outer Worlds, which is published under Take-Twoâ€™s Private Division label. As an Xbox One â€˜Game Passâ€™ release it comes as no surprise to see that the PS4 version was the biggest selling, taking 78% of sales.
Thatâ€™s followed by another new release at #5 â€“ Sonyâ€™s platformer revival MediEvil. Backed by a Â£25 price tag, the family-friendly title has the potential to be a strong seller in the run-up to Christmas.
After a surprise resurgence last week, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe falls from #2 to #6. Fellow Switch release Ring Fit Adventure also fell four places to #7. Sales were up over last week though, which presumably means word of mouth is spreading.
This could also be the case for Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville which only saw a small dip in sales from launch. It remains in the top ten for another week, now at #9.
Minecraft on Switch sees us out at #10.
It isn’t entirely good news for Switch releases, with both Overwatch and The Witcher III spiralling down the chart. Theyâ€™re now at #38 and #30, respectively.
