Grand Theft Auto V tops the UK charts for the 13th time

Grand Theft Auto V has made it to the top of the UK charts for an impressive 13th time, joining Zumba Fitness as only the third game to hit that milestone. Wii Fit managed 16 weeks at the top, but all tremble before the might of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, a game which enjoyed a massive 18 weeks at the pinnacle of UK retail.

Rockstar’s open-world best-seller actually took top spot despite a week-on-week drop of 10% in terms of sales, which points to a sluggish week for retailers in general (presumably people were too busy enjoying the sunshine to go out and buy video games).

Retailer promotions have instigated some movers and shakers, though, with last week’s chart-topper, Horizon: Zero Dawn, dropping to eighth once it was returned to full price. On the other hand, Ghost Recon: Wildlands has benefitted from a discount and rises ten places into fourth. Dirt 4 also did well last week, taking second spot ahead of FIFA 17.

In Nintendo news, Arms drops down to seventh after a solid launch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is back in the top ten thanks to a resupply of stock around the country, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild shifted a few extra copies taking it up ten places to twelth, just outside of the GfK Chart-Track multi-platform top ten, which you can see in full below:

1. Grand Theft Auto V / Take-Two
2. Dirt 4 / Codemasters
3. FIFA 17 / EA
4. Ghost Recon: Wildlands / Ubisoft
5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe / Nintendo
6. Overwatch / Activision
7. Arms / Nintendo
8. Horizon: Zero Dawn / Sony
9. Forza Horizon 3 / Microsoft
10. Tekken 7 / Bandai Namco
