Call of Duty: WWII PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Remember how virtually every retail release has been down this year in the UK due to growing digital sales? It hasn’t affected Call of Duty: WWII, which has absolutely smashed predecessor Infinite Warfare’s launch by a whopping 57 per cent. That should put the historical shooter just short of Black Ops III’s first week figures – again, without digital sales factored into the equation.

Impressively, 57 per cent of the sales were made on the PlayStation 4, compared to just 42 per cent on the Xbox One – a trend that’s become fairly consistent in recent months. It’ll be interesting to see whether the release of the Xbox One X can start to reverse that trend – or if Sony’s system will continue to strengthen its strangle on third-party sales.

Good word of mouth allowed for a solid Assassin’s Creed Origins hold, with the Egyptian adventure sticking around in second. Meanwhile, FIFA 18 leapfrogged Super Mario Odyssey into third, while Gran Turismo Sport kept its nose in front of Forza Motorsport 7 in fifth position. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus dropped into sixth place, while newcomer Spintires: MudRunners entered in 24th position.
