As if it’s a not surprising, Call of Duty Black Ops 3 has topped the UK Game Sales Chart in retail for last week. Releasing on Friday worldwide, the juggernaut franchise storms to the top yet again on its debut. Will that change this week with Fallout 4, or will Call of Duty continue on with a scorestreak?
Need for Speed also made its debut last week, entering the chart in 3rd place which is fantastic. Check out our review for it here, where I found it to be good fun. FIFA 16 climbs one place into 2nd, while Halo 5 Guardians slips from first into 4th already. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate also drops, eagle diving from 2nd into 5th.
Both Minecraft console editions hang on for dear life in the top twenty, resting in 19th and 20th, and Guitar Hero Live drops from 11th to 16th. Unfortunately for Harmonix, Rock Band 4 doesn’t make the list. LEGO Dimensions remains in 9th place for its second week, raking in the cash with the expensive starter kit. Oddly enough, Call of Duty Ghosts slipped back into the top 20 last week, appearing in 15th. This week, it has moved up again, to 10th! What’s goin’ on?!!
