In the first post-holiday sales charts for the United Kingdom both the juggernaut Call of Duty and FIFA franchises have maintained their stranglehold on the top two sales positions heading into the second week 2017.
While established top contenders like COD may not have budged from the top spot the lower rankings did see quite a bit of a shuffle with Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 3 jumping up 7 places to claim the 5th spot this past week. Also up in the charts is Nintendo’s Pokemon Sun & Moon which climbed 4 ranks to clinch the 9th position in this week’s top ten.
Here are the top 10 games for the UK for the week ending January 7th:
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
- FIFA 17
- GTA V
- Battlefield 1
- Forza Horizon 3
- Watch Dogs 2
- Mafia III
- Rocket League
- Pokemon Sun
Although I didn’t particularly care for Call of Duty’s repetitive rehash of Black Ops III’s mechanics it does seem to be quite popular with our European counterparts. Just this past weekend Jason reviewed Pokemon Sun & Moon – which he awarded an absolutely perfect score, 5 out 5 stars.
