UK Game Sales: DOOM 2016 Holds Off Rocket League’s Retail Debut

by Damian Seeto


DOOM 2016 continues to be a hot seller over in the UK as it came on top for a second straight week. It managed to hold off the retail debut of Rocket League and more.

As noted by GFK Chart-Track, DOOM 2016 topped the All Formats Chart for another week. Sales only dropped by a steady 43 percent compared to last week.

DOOM’s main challenger came in the form of FIFA 16. That game continues to be popular with the EURO 2016 tournament still ongoing. Popular games such as Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End and Overwatch placed third and fourth on the chart respectively.

The highest “new release” comes in the form of the physical retail version of Rocket League. It placed at number six on the chart. The game includes all of the previously released DLC and additional new cars.

Rocket League has already been played by million of gamers worldwide so that’s why it isn’t higher on the list. Lots of people got the game for free when it was offered via PlayStation Plus.

Most of the other new releases weren’t in the top 10. These included the likes of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE on Wii U and Odin Sphere Leifthrasir for Sony consoles. Next week the charts are likely be to dominated by LEGO Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens.
