UK Sales Charts: GTA V Becomes One of Five Titles to Claim 12 Number Ones; NiOh Debuts at Number Two

on February 13, 2017 8:14 AM

The 6th week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and unlike the 5th week Capcom’s Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is no longer top dog, with Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V  stripping away the number one spot, and Team Ninja’s NiOh leapfrogging it in its first week, claiming the number two spot.

On the All Formats Top 40 Units Chart, GTA V returns for the third time this year, and for its 12th time total since its original launch back in week 38 of 2013. The mega hit is now one of the only 5 titles to claim a minimum of 12 number ones. The others are Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (18 number ones), Wii Fit (16 number ones), Zumba Fitness (13 number ones), and FIFA 14 (12 number ones). 

Meanwhile, Team Ninja has returned with a bang with NiOh, which grabbed the number two spot in its debut week. Beat out in this chart, the Sony/Koei Tecmo published game did manage to grab the number one spot on the All Formats Top 40 Revenue Chart. When you consider, Sony’s last published game, Gravity Rush 2, only ever managed to reach the number 16 spot (which was in its debut week), this is quite the impressive score for Sony, who published the game everywhere bar Japan.

Dropping from the number one spot, the fall was only a minor one for Capcom’s Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which landed at number three after two weeks at number one. Bringing up the rest of the top 5, was EA’s FIFA 17 at number four, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at number five.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 6 2017 (the week ended on February 11th)

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