UKIE Game Charts, Week 47 2014

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 10 best-selling titles in Britain, as announced by The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment.

It’s an interesting situation this week, where the new #1 technically misses out on being a glorious debut title, due to the fact that Grand Theft Auto V has been on shelves for more than a year now. That said, the new HD version of the game has jumped all the way from #32 up to #1, so Rockstar Games should be feeling a little bit chuffed.

Even without the new versions of the game, Rockstar has a winner on its hands – the original Xbox 360 / PS3 editions comfortably took home the record for highest-grossing game in a week (Week 38, 2013 – £94m total UK estimate), and it also holds the UK all-time revenue record. The new HD release has nudged it over the edge, so GTAV now owns the UK all-time unit sales record as well.

…but there are games that are not based in Los Santos – Far Cry 4 launched in the UK on Tuesday, and is “by far” the most successful game in the Ubisoft franchise, while Dragon Age: Inquisition has sold “almost exactly” the same on debut as Dragon Age II did in 2011.
