Even though Fallout 4 dominated the game charts, Rise of the Tomb Raider still managed to hold on. The Xbox One version dominated sales over the Xbox 360 version.

As announced by Chart Track, 85 percent of UK gamers bought Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Xbox One platform. Only 15 percent of the sales were for the Xbox 360 version.

It was a highly competitive week for Rise of the Tomb Raider as it had to settle for number four in the overall UK charts. Fallout 4 obviously dominated while franchise big-hitters Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and FIFA 16 held the second and third spots respectively.

In terms of individual platforms, the Xbox One version of Rise of the Tomb Raider got the fifth spot. The PS4 and Xbox One versions of Fallout 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 held all the other top spots.

Way down the bottom of the list in terms of individual platforms was the Xbox 360 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider. It had to settle for the 23rd spot.

A NeoGAF user noted that Rise of the Tomb Raider only shifted 63,000 copies. The 2013 reboot shifted 183,000 copies when it came out. Sales will of course be bigger once it eventually comes out on PC and PS4 next year.
