UK Game Sales: Overwatch Manages To Hold Top Spot Over Uncharted 4

by Damian Seeto


Overwatch continues to sell really well in the UK as it held the top spot for the second week running. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been consistent as it has been close to a month since it came out.

As reported by GFK Chart-Track, Overwatch sales were down by 54 percent compared to the week prior but this was enough to still make it number one in the UK. Worldwide sales for the game are really impressive as over 7 million people bought it in just one week.

The top three remain unchanged from last week as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is number 2 while Doom 2016 is number 3 on the charts. A surprising lift came from FIFA 16 as it crawled up into the fourth position this week. Retail promotions and the EURO 2016 event helped make FIFA become a hot seller.

The highest “new release” comes in the form of Dead Island: Definitive Edition which debuted at number 5. It isn’t a new game since it’s just remastered versions of the first two Dead Island video games.

The only other new release came in the form of One Piece: Burning Blood. The game however failed to impress UK gamers as it only came in at number 37.
