Here is the UKIE/GfK Top Ten for the week ending September 14:
Top 10 UK :
- Borderlands 3
- Gears 5
- eFootball PES 2020
- NBA 2K20
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Spyro Reignited Trilogy
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled
- Super Mario Maker 2
From the article:
"The game sold less than half the number of boxed copies as its predecessor (Borderlands 2) managed in week one back in 2012. However, that was seven years ago when digital was still a small part of the industry. Furthermore, Borderlands as a franchise has enjoyed significant success since then as a download via Steam, PSN and Xbox Live."
"In second spot is Microsoft's Gears 5. The game also sold less than its predecessor -- about 25% of what Gears 4 managed at launch -- but we live in a Game Pass world, and it's not clear what impact the subscription service has had on sales of first-party Xbox games."
Borderlands sales might not actually be down, if you factor in digital.
Even with digital sales factored in, Gears 5 should be way down, compaired to Gears of War 4.
Hopefully Gamepass revenue contributes enough to offset that somewhat.
Supposedly these are how the previous games did opening week (UK):
 Gears of War 2 ~ 220,000
 Gears of War 3 ~ 323,000
 Gears of War Judgement ~ 80,000
 Gears of War Remake Ultimate Edition ~ 40,000
 Gears of War 4 ~ 80,000
 Gears 5 ~ 22,000
