Arkham Knight First Week UK Sales Tops The Witcher 3
The fastest-selling game of the year so far used to be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Not anymore. At least in the UK, the new leader is Batman: Arkham Knight; according to Chart-Track, first-week sales for Rocksteady's new gem have topped CD Projekt Red's RPG in the same time period.
That's not too surprising, though, as one is simply more marketable to a larger audience; The Witcher 3, despite all the hype, is still really for the hardcore gamer. The new Batman effort also took out previous #1 LEGO Jurassic World, which came in at #2 on the overall list. Here's the top 10 for top UK performers last week:
- Batman: Arkham Knight
- Lego Jurassic World
- The Elder Scrolls Online
- Yoshi's Woolly World
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Call of Duty: Advance Warfare
- FIFA 15
- Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward
