Gears of War Ultimate Edition

Supermassive’s Until Dawn may have received a strong critical response on release and debuted in a great position in the UK. However, it only managed to hit second place in sales according to Gfk Chart-Track. It was The Coalition’s Gears of War: Ultimate Edition which debuted on top in the midst of several new releases for the week.

Disney Infinity 3.0 and Madden NFL 16 also debuted in the past week at third and fourth place respectively. LEGO Jurassic World tumbled to fifth place followed by Grand Theft Auto 5 at sixth while Dishonored Definitive Edition managed to score a spot at seventh on its debut. Minecraft: PlayStation Edition, Batman: Arkham Knight and Minecraft: Xbox Edition occupied the remaining spots in the top ten.

This week’s sales should be even more interesting since games like Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Mad Max have released after much hype. Which one will remain supreme in the UK? We’ll find out next week so stay tuned.

  • Until Dawn is by far the strongest game in last week’s pack. Unfortunately, Sony’s marketing team completely dropped the ball and the game received the minimum pre-release advertising. Not that that’s altogether a bad thing for the players, who will slowly tune in to this game’s charms and turn it into the sleeper hit it deserves to become, but I’m guessing some marketing executives are being slowly tortured to death in Sony’s secret underground lair.

    • The truth-ier

      the only problem with your remark is this….. its based on opinion. PS4 exclusives tend not to outsell MS exclusives, the single day record for a exclusive is still held by halo.
      Not everyone likes interactive 9 hour movie, while gears gives you all the 360 games in bc for free, and has a longer full game, and it has full multiplayer.
      Until dawn looks great, but in reality its a interactive movie, its not an amazing looking full game.

    • So how do you explain that Until Dawn is now selling better than Gears of War?

      That’s because it’s not a shooter. People still think the Sony is the Sony of old. But you do see them pushing Destiny, Battlefront and CoD. I would love to try this game at some point during a drought. But that Gears is a solid remake, played it for hours the other day.

      Well I hear u, good u enjoyed ‘Dawn. But I’d reckon if most players had to choose between the 2, they’d go with the traditional 3rd person game over the “interactive QTE” genre. Gears has a huge following so the sales charts data is a no brainer to me. Ultimately tho, sales does NOTHING for the individual’s gaming experience, and that to me, is all that matters really. Both systems will have a “must own” type of year in 2016…

      I would have to disagree with you. I have watched Until Dawn lets plays. The acting in it is absolutely terrible; I don’t mean “cheesy,” which is something they are trying to do on purpose. The execution of the acting is bad on so many occasions. Every single time the Psychiatrist appeared, his acting never looked authentic. It was done very poorly. The story is well written, but it is so offset by the horrible acting.
