on December 12, 2016 4:23 AM

Like every Monda, Gfk Chart-Track and UKIE published the weekly sales chart for the UK market related to last week, and looks like there’s no stopping the Call of Duty train, with Infinite Warfare pushing back to the top. On the other hand, The Last Guardian debuts in 7th place in the overall chart, while it places 5th if we consider individual platforms.

Below you can read the full analysis:

“Call of Duty Back on Top

There are only 3 charts left after this week until the end of the year and the week 49, 2016 chart sees the last of the big releases out of the traps.

Activision re-claim No1 with ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’, perhaps with an eye on the Christmas No1, which they have held for the previous 2 years with ‘COD Black Ops III’ in 2015 and ‘COD Advance Warfare’ in 2014. EA take No’s 2 & 3 with ‘FIFA 17’ and ‘Battlefield 1’. The impressive launch of Square Enix’s ‘Final Fantasy XV’ last week at No2 sees the title dropping to No4 this week, but still ahead of the 2 big new releases this week. The first of the new releases is Microsoft and Capcom’s ‘Dead Rising 4’ for Xbox One debuting at No5. Previous iteration ‘Dead Rising 3’ was also only Xbox One, debuting 2 places lower at No7 in week 47,2013. Remaining at No6 for a third successive week is Ubisoft’s ‘Watch Dogs 2’, which means that Sony’s PS4 ‘The Last Guardian’ debuts at No7. Previous games in this series debuted at No15 (‘Ico’ for PS2, All Formats Chart week 12, 2002) and at No1 (‘Shadow of the Colossus’ for PS2, All Formats Chart week 7, 2006).”

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.
