U.K. Weekly Sales Charts

GfK Chart Track offers their updated charts on video game sales in the U.K. through last week. Rome: Total War II [sic] remains their mis-titled number one. Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 enters at number five on the full-priced PC top 20, while The Elder Scrolls Anthology debuts at number four. On the PC bargain chart, Euro Truck Simulator 2: Go East rolls over the competition to park at number 2, while The Sims 3: Movie Stuff remains at number one. And stuff. Finally, there's a new sheriff in town on the all-platforms/all prices chart, or better to say, a new criminal in town, as Grand Theft Auto V makes its unsurprising debut in the top spot, stealing away the number one position from Saints Row IV. Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 enters that chart at number two. Here's the their overview on the latest developments:

Released on Tuesday 17th September, ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ makes a stunning debut at the top of the All Formats Chart this week, breaking all records to become the fastest selling game ever.

With just 5 days on sale it has become the 24th biggest selling title of all time in the UK (11th biggest on Xbox 360 and 10th on PS3). It has sold more in its first week than the launch weeks of all other GTA titles combined. It’s launch week is 2.4 times greater than that of ‘GTA IV’ and betters previous best ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ by almost ¼ million units. Released on just the two formats, Xbox 360 accounted for 57% of sales and PS3 43%.

It might feel like GTA V was the only new release this week with 89% of all sales being for just that one title, but ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2014’ debuts at No2, while further down the chart at No22 is ‘Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning’. Hardware bundling helps push ‘The Last of Us’ (+536%) up from No27 to No3, while last week’s No1, ‘Saints Row IV’ (-45%) slips to No4. ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ (-8%) is down one place to No5, ahead of ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (+1%), a non-mover at No6. ‘Diablo III’ sales drop by 49% as it falls from No3 to No7. ‘Disney Infinity’ (-20%) drops 3 places to No8 ahead of a re-entry for newly retailer-promoted ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ (+913%) at No9. ‘Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix’ (-70%) slides from No2 to No10 in its second week of release. Sales from the remaining 9 titles in the Top 10 only represented 4%, making it hard to imagine a week where one title has been so dominant or perhaps ever will.
