Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Stands at Top of the UK Sales Chart in Its Second Week of Launch
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War was the best-selling physical game in the UK over the last week, despite a 27% drop in sales compared to the launch week.
More or less, the physical market around the world for every product is suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic and video games are no exception. That being said, last week’s UK sales result was still a significant achievement for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, where it managed to beat Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War for dominating the UK’s physical game sales chart at launch week, though Activision’s latest hit took over the first place over the last week.
According to the new data, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War was the best-selling game of last week in the UK’s physical market, despite experiencing a 27% drop in sales compared to the last week. In fact, Valhalla‘s huge 70% drop in sales helped some of the other games of the market to reach higher positions in the weekly chart.
Thanks to the Black Friday deals, FIFA 21 was the second-best of last week with a 121% increase in sales. FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition and FIFA 21 Champions Edition are available with a significant discount now, encouraging every football fan to grab one of them in the early months of the football season.
The third place in the UK’s best-selling games of last week belongs to Sony’s Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales. Releasing on both PS5 and PS4, Miles Morales‘ sales in the first two weeks of the launch is still 57% less than the original Spider-Man‘s release in the same period on PS4 back in 2018. However, the game might have a continuous strong sale in the upcoming year as more people will be getting a PS5 console. It’s also worth noting that the game doesn’t support a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5, so this might make some gamers wait on buying Miles Morales until they get a PS5.
The next positions of the table (5-10) respectively belong to Fortnite: The Last Laugh Bundle, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Watch Dogs Legion, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft Switch Edition.
