U.K. Sales Charts

GfK reveals the bestselling games in the U.K. for the week ending June 7th. On the PC full-price chart WildStar debuts at number one, pushing Watch Dogs down to the number four spot. On the all platforms/all prices chart Watch Dogs retains the top spot, while Murdered: Soul Suspect enters the chart at number three. Here's how they describe the situation:

‘Watch Dogs’ still has its teeth firmly gripped on No1 this week despite an 81% drop in sales (84% drop on PS4/Xbox One and 68% drop on PS3/Xbox 360).

You have to go back to W22 2012 and ‘Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’ for the last Ubisoft title that managed to hold on to the No1 spot. A non-mover at No2, ‘Mario Kart 8’ (-76%) has to fend off strong competition from Square’s new title ‘Murdered: Soul Suspect’, only 400 sales behind, at No3. ‘Wolfenstein: The New Order’ (-51%) and ‘FIFA 14’ (-25%) both drop one place to No’s 4 and 5 respectively, while ‘2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil’ (-10%) holds on to No6. There are still 2 Minecrafts in the Top 10 with the PS3 Edition (-37%) down 2 places to No7 and the Xbox 360 Edition (-27%) also down 2 places, to No10. Minecraft hasn’t dropped out of the Top 10 all year.

Previous No1s and big FPS titles ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (-11%) and ‘Titanfall’ (-22%) are fighting it out at No’s 8 and 9 respectively with Activision Blizzard’s shooter leapfrogging EA’s with only 200 sales separating them. ‘Murdered: Soul Suspect’ isn’t the only new entry this week with NCSOFT’s latest MMO ‘Wildstar’ debuting at No14 ahead of Nintendo’s 3DS life simulation game ‘Tomodachi Life’ at No15.
