UK Game Charts: Watch Dogs Sales Drop 81 Percent, Still on Top
Meanwhile, WildStar and Tomodachi Life debut.
Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs broke sales records for the company on release, selling millions of copies within the first few days and claiming the top sales spot in the UK. Now, however, UKIE game charts (courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track) have reported that though Watch Dogs is still the top selling game across all platforms, sales have dropped significantly from release.
PS4 and Xbox One sales dropped by 84 percent while PS3 and Xbox 360 dropped by 68 percent for a total sales drop of 81 percent. Keep in mind that there’s still a significantly large install base on the PS3 and Xbox 360 so it’s likely Watch Dogs stays on top for a few more weeks.
Meanwhile, Mario Kart 8 stayed at second place while Murdered: Soul Suspect inexplicably debuted at third place despite horrible reviews. Other debuts included WildStar at 14th place, most likely due to the lack of enthusiasm for paid subscriber MMOs these days, and Tomodachi Life for the 3DS at 15th place.
