on June 6, 2016 4:30 AM

Today is Monday, and like every Monday, GFK Chart-Track and UKIE released their analysis and weekly sales chart for the UK Market.

With no big new releases, Overwatch, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Doom retain their previous placement at the top of the chart.

“Activision’s ‘Overwatch’ (-54%) holds on to the crown for a second week as it heads an unchanged Top 3.

‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ (-27%) is at No2 while Bethesda’s ‘Doom’ (-33%) remains at No3. Price promotions and bundling (and perhaps an upcoming tournament) continue to propel ‘Fifa 16’ (+65%) up the chart as it climbs back to No4. The highest ranking new release comes in the form of a re-release as ‘Dead Island: Definitive Edition’ rises at No5. Koch Media combine re-mastered versions of Dead Island and its sequel Dead Island: Riptide for PS4 and Xbox One. The half term break continues to draw strong sales for more familiar faces with ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+66%) the chief benefactor climbing four places to No6. Koch Media’s second Top 10 title ‘Homefront: The Revolution’ (-36%) slips six places to round of the Top 10 at No10.
There’s also a new entry in the cult One Piece series in the form of Bandai Namco’s ‘One Piece: Burning Blood’, which makes its debut at No37.”

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
