Sekiro slices its way to the top of the UK retail charts

Monday, March 25th, 2019

Good things come to those who wait, and that includes both gamers and game makers by the looks of it. FromSoftware will be popping champagne corks this week as the studio has scored its second multi-platform chart success here in the UK with it being the developer’s second chart-topper after Dark Souls III managed the same feat back in 2016.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was, therefore, last week’s best-selling game at UK retail, with former best-seller The Division 2 pushed into second place. Otherwise, there’s a slight reshuffle in terms of the top ten, but nothing worth writing home about. Here’s the GfK Chart-Track top ten in full:

1. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice / Activision
2. The Division 2 / Ubisoft
3. FIFA 19 / EA
4. Grand Theft Auto V / Take-Two
5. Red Dead Redemption 2 / Take-Two
6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe / Nintendo
7. The Lego Movie 2 Videogame / Warner Bros.
8. Forza Horizon 4 / Microsoft

The Division 2 tops the gaming charts

Monday, March 18th, 2019

Considering anticipation for The Division 2 before release it might not surprise you to hear that it’s debuted at the top spot when it comes to the UK physical charts, as reported by, but it may surprise you to hear it fell well short of the original’s launch figures, gathering 20% of what the first game sold in its launch week.

60% of these sales came on PS4, with the rest on Xbox One, and since many people have posted a review in progress as they work their way through the massive game, as more reviews continue to drop this will no doubt affect sales.

Devil May Cry 5, however, slips from first place to number six after facing a 76% drop in sales compared to the week before, with Red Dead Redemption 2 riding into number two with a 22% increase in sales. Grand Theft Auto V sits just behind at number three, having a whopping 121% bump.

In number five we also have The Lego Movie 2 Videogame after the game launched in Nintendo Switch, while Anthem fell out of the top 10 to sit at number 11. For the full top 10 list though, be sure to check down below.

Can The Division 2 hold onto the top spot?

1. The Division 2 / Ubisoft
2. Red Dead Redemption 2 / Rockstar
3. Grand Theft Auto V / Rockstar
4. FIFA 19 / EA Sports
5. The Lego Movie 2 Videogame / Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
6. Devil May Cry 5 / Capcom
7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe / Nintendo
8. Far Cry: New Dawn / Ubisoft
9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate / Nintendo
10. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe / Nintendo

Sunday, March 10th, 2019

Lewis Capaldi hangs on to his Number 1 position on the Official Singles Chart, just ahead of Calvin Harris and Rag’n’Bone Man, who take the runner-up spot for a second week.

Someone You Loved crosses the finish line 6,000 combined sales ahead of Giant; and while Calvin Harris & Rag’n’Bone Man didn’t quite nab the top spot, they did pick up the most downloads this week.

Mabel’s Don’t Call Me Up lands at Number 3 after overtaking Ariana Grande’s two former Number 1s Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored and 7 Rings at 4 and 5.

This week’s highest new entry comes from the Jonas Brothers; their long-awaited return after six years Sucker flies straight in at Number 6 to become their first ever UK Top 10 single.

Just You And I by Tom Walker climbs two to 8 as his debut album What a Time to Be Alive takes Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.

Anthem takes the top spot for a second week

Monday, March 4th, 2019

Last week Anthem debuted at number one in the UK boxed charts even though it managed significantly lower sales than Mass Effect: Andromeda, and despite the lukewarm reception to Bioware’s game it has retained the top spot after fending off competition from the likes of The Lego Movie 2 Videogame.

As reported by, a 71% drop in sales week-on-week wasn’t enough to topple Anthem, which had competition from FIFA 19 a place behind it. The game of The Lego Movie 2 also entered at number four, selling 59% of the copies on PS4, the same percentage that Dirt Rally 2.0 had on the console at number six (although Codemasters’ game was actually number two when it comes to revenue, since it sold at a higher price than others).

Trials Rising: Gold Edition is another new entry into the top 10, in number 10, with 39% coming on PS4, 33% on Xbox One, and 28% on Nintendo Switch. Dead or Alive 6, however, sold less than half of what 5 managed, and enters the charts in number 21.

For the full top 10 check down below.

1. Anthem / EA
2. FIFA 19 / EA Sports
3. Far Cry New Dawn / Ubisoft
3. The Lego Movie 2/Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
5. Red Dead Redemption 2 / Rockstar
6. Dirt Rally 2.0 / Codemasters
7. Metro Exodus / Deep Silver
8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe / Nintendo
9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate / Nintendo
