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 not surprising in any way, but Star Wars Battlefront is not only #1 in the UK this week, but it’s also the biggest ever launch for a video game in the Star Wars franchise, the fourth-biggest launch of 2015, and the fastest-selling non-sequel PS4 title ever.
Anyway. Last week’s bestseller, Fallout 4, has slipped to #3, which means that despite a 50% drop in sales, Call of Duty: Black Ops III remains at #2 for another week. An increase in sales isn’t enough to prevent FIFA 16 from sliding to #4, while unchanged sales figures see LEGO Dimensions climb two places.
No new titles in the top 40 this week, everything else has just been shuffled around a bit.
