UKIE Game Charts, Week 38 2013

Grand Theft Auto V: Your protagonists

Grand Theft Auto V

We love charts here at Player Attack, and one of the highlights of our week is receiving the latest details from UKIE, who send us the 40 best-selling titles in Britain, as announced by the The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment.

Wait for it… wait for it… no prizes for guessing which game’s taken out top spot this week: It’s Grand Theft Auto V in exactly the sort of ridiculous landslide you might see cascading down Mount Chiliad.

Here’s some details: It’s already the 24th biggest-selling title of all-time in the UK – and that’s after just five days on sale. It has sold more in its first week than the launch weeks of all other GTA titles – combined. Its launch week sales are 2.4 times greater than predecessor GTA IV. It has sold nearly 250,000 more copies in its launch week than previous record holder Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Of course, there are more titles in the Top 10, but we’re forgiven for not talking about them too much: Grand Theft Auto V represents 89% of all game sales in the UK last week. (If you’re curious about the big movers: The Last of Us enjoyed the benefits of a hardware bundle, while Aliens: Colonial Marines has been pushed hard by a retail chain.)
