Rockstar's release up to second as Call of Duty tops

Grand Theft Auto V is an unstoppable juggernaut. The game, which first launched over two years ago, has climbed to second in this week's UK sales charts, proving that there ain't any stopping Rockstar's train. Call of Duty: Black Ops III continued its dominance in first position, while FIFA 16,...

UK Sales Charts: Best Sellers, Best Sellers Never Change

Zzz

Nothing to see here, folks. The UK sales charts have barely changed for nearing a month now, and that remains true this week, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III on top yet again. FIFA 16 managed to bump Star Wars Battlefront down into third, while Grand Theft Auto V overtook Fallout 4 in fourth. The only real surprise this time is that Battlefield...

UK Sales Charts: Ain't No Beating Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Back in black

Call of Duty has become such a strange series. Much like FIFA, it feels like – review time aside – the franchise barely gets any coverage on mainstream websites, and yet year after year it dominates the sales charts.

UK Sales Charts: Just Cause 3 Blows a Hole in the Top Five

Marvellous Medici

Just Cause 3 tethered a landmine to fourth position in this week's UK sales charts – and pulled them both together. Avalanche Studios' open world adventure appears to have got off to a flying start, but it couldn't topple FIFA 16, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, or Star Wars Battlefront – all three of which remained glued to the...
