Resident Evil 7 Tops UK Sales Charts For Second Straight Week

The fifth week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and like the fourth week, Capcom’s Resident Evil 7: Biohazard  is top dog.

Yup, that’s right, the latest entry in the iconic horror series has now posted impressive back-to-back number one showings in the UK, and if it lasts another week the spot, it will match the franchise’s longest run at the top (Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 5 both hung on at the the top for three weeks).

Sales juggernaut Grand Theft Auto remains in second, while FIFA 17 climbs from number 4 to number 3. Meanwhile, new entry,  Hitman: The Complete First Season broke into the top 5, landing at number 4, with its retail release.

The only other new entry to break into the Top 40 is Nintendo’s 3DS title Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly Word which squeaked into the top 20, at the 20 spot.

As for the rest of the top ten, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare remained at number 5, despite sales climbing 4% due to the release on Tuesday of its first DLC pack Sabotage. Rocket League also maintained its spot at number 6, and Battlefield 1 at seven. In eighth, it’s Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV which jumped 7 spots. While 9th and 10th are rounded up by 2K’s WWE 2K17 and Mafia III respectively.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 5 2017 (the week ended on February 4th)

It’s important to note this only includes physical sales, and not digital sales.
