Uncharted 4 Beats Doom In The UK For The Top Spot In Software Sales

The final entry in Sony’s Uncharted franchise A Thief’s End has shot to the top spot in the UK charts, beating Week One sales records for the franchise. Uncharted 4 has beaten the launch week sales of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception by 66 percent.

Meanwhile, the new entry in Bethesda’s Doom series charted in second place. This is the first time the shooter series launched on PS4 and Xbox One with Week One sales coming in at 67 percent higher than Doom 3. Do bear in mind that Uncharted 4 came out on Tuesday last week and Doom wasn’t released until Friday, so Uncharted 4 had a three day head start on Doom.

Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Black Ops III holds third place with a 46 percent decline in sales, while Sony’s Ratchet & Clank hangs in the Top Five at Number 4. That games’ sales declined 50 percent week-on-week.

Below is the software Top Ten at UK for the week ending May 14th:

1. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Sony
2. Doom, Bethesda
3. Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Activision 
4. Rachet & Clank, Sony
5. The Division, Ubisoft
6. Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft
7. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar 
8. FIFA 16, EA
9. LEGO Marvel’s Avengers, Warner Bros
10. Star Wars Battlefront, EA

With two big games that were released last week, other companies stayed out of the way, with most of the rest of the top 10 being largely static. Although sales on various Xbox One games saw a number of re-entries in the bottom end of the individual formats chart. This week’s two new retail releases are Homefront: The Revolution and Fire Emblem Fates on 3DS. They should be able to get into the top 10, but it seems unlikely that either will be able to compete for the number one spot.

I'd say Uncharted 4 deserves to be number 1 in the UK. The game is just simply an amazing masterpiece, and it already has a LOT of perfect scores on different reviews. Doom is also an amazing game, and I'll probably try it if I don't have anything to play on my PS4. Congrats to Naughty Dog and Sony!

I love both of them but I gotta admit, the old school feel of Doom has me coming back night after night to stab b*tches with my chainsaw and kick em off.

If the GF doesn't get on my case this weekend I might have time for Drake too. It's a gaming orgy. I love it!

Great!

I'm on chapter 15 in Uncharted 4.
I'd be further but I've been short on game time.

I just finished it. Nostalgia came pouring back in and I immediately wanted to play Drakes Fortune.
