Today is Monday, and that means that GFK Chart-Track just released its weekly analysis and sales charts displaying the trends of the market in the United Kingdom last week.

‘Grand Theft Auto V’ holds on to top spot for a second week, recording a total of 11 weeks at No1 – the most weeks at No1 in the All Formats Chart for any GTA game.

‘FIFA 17’ climbs from No3 to No2, swapping places with ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ which drops to No3. Ubisoft’s ‘Steep’ rises two places to No7, matching its highest position, reached back in W51 2016. ‘Overwatch’ jumps back in to the Top 10, up 8 places to No10. The last time it was in the Top 10 was back in W45 last year when it reached No7. New releases finally start to make an appearance in the Top 40 with a debut at No13 for Square-Enix/Nintendo’s ‘Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King’ on 3DS, while Sony’s ‘Gravity Rush 2’ on PS4 enters at No16. Next week the chart will get invaded by zombies as ‘Resident Evil VII: Biohazard’ is set to break loose.

Below you can also check out the charts with the top-40 for combined sales and split by format.
