Overwatch conquers all at UK retail

Overwatch has become Blizzard’s fasting selling console title in the UK, in the process beating the console versions of Diablo III. Nearly half of sales were on PS4 (47%), with the remainder split between Xbox One (36%) and PC (18%). When it came to individual formats Overwatch dominated, with all three versions of the game inside the top five (PS4 in 1st, Xbox One in 3rd, and PC in 5th).

The only other top ten debutant of note is Total War: Warhammer, although the retail edition of Creative Assembly’s fantasy strategy game only made it as far as 9th (or 8th in the individual format chart). However, that won’t worry Sega too much with the title breaking franchise records thanks to very strong digital sales (more on that here).

Elsewhere Ratchet & Clank enjoyed resurgent sales (up 114%) after it was among the games bundled with hardware by retailers across the country. FIFA 16 (up 91%), The Division (up 42%), and Grand Theft Auto V (up 49%) were also included in various promotions.

Finally, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Manhattan didn’t make it out of the sewer last week, and ended up languishing all the way down in 18th place. You can see the GfK Chart-Track top ten below:

1. Overwatch – Blizzard / Activision
2. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End – Naughty Dog / Sony
3. Doom – id Software / Bethesda
