Sony’s open world survival PS4 title has managed to outperform a highly anticipated multiplatform game.
The latest weekly sales charts for boxed video game sales in the UK have been released by UKIE/GfK Chart-Track (via GamesIndustry), and the results in the top 10 for the week ending April 27 hold some surprises. Days Gone and Mortal Kombat 11 were the two big releases of the week, but Sony’s PS4 exclusive open world title has taken the top spot, while Mortal Kombat 11 comes in at second place.
That’s in spite of the fact that Mortal Kombat 11 was on the market for three days longer, while also being available on more platforms than Days Gone. Mortal Kombat 11’s debut sales are 43.6 per cent lower than those of Mortal Kombat X, but slightly more than those for Injustice 2 in 2017. It’s worth noting that these sales only include retail sails though, with digital figures, as always, not being included. 71 per cent of Mortal Kombat 11’s sales came on the PS4.
Meanwhile, World War Z, which topped charts last week, has dropped down to tenth place after a 70 per cent drop in sales. The rest of the games in the top 10 are ones that figured in last week as well, with the exception of Forza Horizon 4, which moves up from 16th place to the eighth spot.
