God of War set a record as the fastest selling game in the series, debuting at the top of the weekly UK boxed chart. In its second week on sale, it's stayed put, fending off Far Cry 5 in second and Nintendo Labo, which debuts in third with its Variety Pack.
According to GamesIndustry.biz, God of War saw a sales dip of just 35%. Normally, games sell the most in their first week, and then sales fall off a cliff, so Sony will be happy with a comparably small week-on-week decrease. In contrast, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, which debuted at a healthy No.3 last week, plunged to No.39 after an 85% sales dip.
Elsewhere, Call of Duty: WWII rejoins the top 10, leaping from nineteenth to seventh thanks to some in-store price promotions.
