Fallout 4 Is The UK's Number One In Physicals This Week


Adam Cook writes for Bleeding Cool…

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.
