As you’d expect given the outrageous levels of hype surrounding Bethesda’s latest entry into the Fallout series, Fallout 4 topped the UK sales charts last week(UKIE don’t measure digital sales, just so you know).
The full top ten as compiled by UKIE is as follows:
1. Fallout 4
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops III
3. FIFA 16
4. Rise of the Tomb Raider
5. Minecraft: Story Mode
6. Need for Speed
7. Football Manager 2016
8. LEGO Dimensions
9. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
10. Halo 5: Guardians
There’s some things to note, here. Firstly that Rise of the Tomb Raider didn’t do as badly as it looks: remember, it’s exclusive to Xbox One and 360. Secondly, Minecraft: Story Mode is doing incredibly well at retail, which is perhaps a surprise, but also shows that anything with “Minecraft” on it will sell in stores.
It’s also worth mentioning that StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void came in at number 23, but it sold a million copies of which many were likely digitally, so that shows how vital it is that digital sales be included in these charts, as they show a false picture, really.
