UK Game Sales Chart, February 18th 2017

for honor chartHappy Monday, one and all! Another week and another look at the UK games chart in retail for last week. Last week saw a few new releases hitting the shelves and it looks like they were well needed. GTA V held the top spot again for two straight weeks and now the beast has to settle for third place.

Taking the top spot, and not to much of  a surprise is Ubisoft’s For Honor. It had a massive marketing push and with closed and open betas, many fans got to try before they buy and it seems to have paid off. 57% of sales were on PS4 and 43% on Xbox One. A refreshing new IP from the publisher, and one that seems to be going down rather well. In 2nd place, Sniper Elite 4 debuts, offering all those lone wolf players a chance to do what they love doing without angry players sighing in their ears.

FIFA 17 holds onto 4th place which is great for the sports sim, while Battlefield 1 moves up one place to 5th. Resident Evil plunges 3 places down the chart from 3rd to 6th, while Nioh, which debuted in 2nd on the PlayStation 4 last week, drops out of the top 10 and into 12th.
