GTA V Steals Back No1

14/Oct/2013

Having debuted 4 weeks ago at No1 as the biggest selling game of all time (week 1 sales), Rockstar/Take 2’s ‘GTA V’ re-takes No1 (-53%).

 

EA’s ‘FIFA 14’ (-66%) drops to No2 – both titles have now had 2 weeks at No1. Nintendo’s new fully 3D 6th generation Pokemon titles debut at No’s 3&4, with ‘Pokemon X’ at No3 and ‘Pokemon Y’ at No4. Sales on these 2 products are around double last year’s Pokemon Black2/White 2 opening week (W41-2012). Pokemon X and Y are the first major headline Pokemon releases to be coded as 3DS titles (after ‘Super Pokemon Rumble’ and ‘Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Infinity’) and X/Y are the first major Pokemon releases to launch in the same week as a Nintendo hand-held console (2DS launched this week) – we’ve come close before with 3DS hardware (W12-2011) released 3 weeks after Pokemon Black/White and DSI XL (W9-2010) released 3 weeks before Pokemon HeartGold/Soulsilver.

Debuting at No5 is Sony’s PS3 exclusive ‘Beyond Two Souls’ from Quantic Dream, last seen 3 and a half years ago with ‘Heavy Rain’ (W8-2010) which debuted at No1. The final new releases this week are NIS America’s ‘Dragon’s Crown’ at No19 and the third Moshi Monsters title, Mind Candy’s ‘Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed’ at No28.

Hey, Dragon's Crown Vita charted! I'm pleased :)

Good for GTA, keep on trucking. Not too steep a drop from Wind Waku either.

I was going to say that wasn't too hot from Pokemans, but if it's up from the previous entry then I guess that's all you can ask for. I also didn't realise that each version is actually counted separately, rather than combined as Pokemon X/Y, otherwise it'd be on top.

It's a shame they didn't do a similar comparison for Beyond/Heavy Rain, though.

WW HD should be now at 7-8k~ I guess, still good. The next Weeks till Mario will be very interesting. Naw, Till the end of the Year will be interesting :D

Wind Waker didn't drop like a rock so that's something I guess.
2 Wii U games and 1 Vita game in the Individual Chart. Must be some kind of record.

About 160k for X&Y then.

Unsurprisingly Pokemon X & Y take 1st and 2nd. Wonder how big its first week can be with just 1 day of sales

How much is Beyond, anyone?

Game of the year so far:

5. Dragon Age: Inquisition
4. Infamous Second Son
3. Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
2. Bayonetta 2
1. Far Cry 4

Close tot 30K if you compare to last week's numbers.



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

Thanks, I assume significantly less than Heavy Rain, isn't it?
