U.K. Sales Charts

U.K. game sales figures for the week ending July 19th are now available through GfK Chart Track. The Elder Scrolls Online ascends to the number one position on the Top 20 PC games chart as Battlefield 4 drops to number three. There are also three re-entries, including two different StarCraft II SKUs. On the all platforms chart Watch Dogs sits at number one again on a very static chart that has three Pokemon re-entries among 40 titles. Here's the gripping narrative describing the results:

With sustained hot weather, the winding down of schools for summer and no new releases, the market drops 10% units / 14% value over last week.

Ubisoft’s ‘Watch Dogs’ (-12%) remains on top, claiming its 5th No1 crown. Familiar faces continue to shuffle around the Top 10 with EA’s ‘FIFA 14’ up 1 to No2 (-13%), Activision’s ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ up 3 to No3 (-12%) and Bethesda’s ‘Wolfenstein: New Order’ remaining at No4 (-27%). 505 Games’ ‘Sniper Elite 3’ (-29%) drops 3 places to No5 followed at No’s 6 & 7 by ‘Minecraft 360’ (-3%) and ‘Minecraft PS3’ (-4%).

EA’s ‘Titanfall’ refuses to leave the Top 10 even after 19 weeks, down 3 to No8 (-24%). EA’s Battlefield 4’ continues to climb back in to the Top 10, up 1 to No9 (+2%). Nintendo climb 6 places to No10 thanks to strong sales of Wii U ‘Mario Kart 8’ (+31%). Old DS favourites from Nintendo re-enter this week at No’s 21/22 with ‘Pokemon Black’ (+127%) / ‘Pokemon White’ (+110%) thanks to some impulse price purchase initiatives.
