UK Software Chart: Not even Pokemon can topple GTA V for the week of October 12th

Written by: / / 3 Comments

Despite the launch of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y this past weekend, Grand Theft Auto V has managed to conquer Chart Track’s UK Software Sales listing for the second time after being bumped down by FIFA 14 the week prior.

GTA V sales dropped by 53%, but that was still enough to compete at the top of the chart as FIFA 14 (sales down 66%) slips to No. 2 from No. 1 last week. Pokemon X and Pokemon Y debut at No. 3 and No. 4 respectively, but keep in mind that the games officially only had a single day to make an impression on the chart having released on October 12th, the last day that sales are considered for inclusion in Chart Track’s list.

According to Chart Track, sales of Pokemon X and Y combined are roughly double those of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 during the debut week of those games, which is all the more impressive considering their 3DS-only nature.

Beyond: Two Souls appears on the chart at No. 5, which is a less eventful debut than developer Quantic Dream’s previous game, Heavy Rain, which launched at No. 1 in the UK in 2010. Finally, Dragon’s Crown is the other debut title this week, showing up at No. 19.
