We begin another week, checking out last week’s retail chart to see how our new releases and older titles have done in stores. Last week saw the massive release of EA and DICE’s Battlefield 1, and you know it was captivating players everywhere. Let’s take a look at the top 20.
FIFA 17 got the boot this week, having to settle for second place in the chart while Battlefield 1 debuted at the top. For a hint of its success, it has outsold both Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline’s week one sales, combined! Mafia III, despite its issues covered in reviews still managed to hold onto third place again, which is great going! Gears of War 4 slipped from 2nd into 4th place, while another debut title, Batman: Return to Arkham managed to brood in 5th place. Who says remasters aren’t wanted?
WWE 2K17 slammed into 6th place from 4th, and Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Edition dived into 7th place from 5th. Another new chart entry, but on PC only is Civilization VI, which arrived in 15th place. No surprise there for a PC title when most players buy digitally anyway.
This week sees Titanfall 2 hit the stores, and I’m standing by to see how well that is received.
