God of War PS4 PlayStation 4 1

God of War has enjoyed a third week at the summit of the UK sales charts, after fending off Nintendo Switch re-release Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Sales of Kratos’ latest dropped 56 per cent week-over-week, but it still moved more than enough physical units to maintain its position atop the British best sellers list. Realistically, it’s unlikely to be ousted until later in the month, although evergreen releases like FIFA 18 or even Far Cry 5 could leapfrog it in the meantime.

Nevertheless, this marks the first time since The Last of Us: Remastered that a PlayStation 4 exclusive has registered three consecutive weeks at the summit – a respectable achievement considering God of War has never been a big seller on these shores. Sony recently announced that the title sold 3.1 million units in just three days, making it the fastest selling first-party release of the generation. The remainder of the top ten is included below.
