Launch week sales of the remake are 73 percent higher than the original.
Sony’s reign of chart-topping titles can’t be stopped. The latest UK sales data from Chart-Track states that Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 has debuted at number 1 in the region. It beat Monster Hunter World which dropped to third place. Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 also saw launch week sales that were 73 percent higher than the PS2 version which released in 2007. Since Chart-Track only accounts for physical sales and not digital, overall units sold will be higher.
In other news, EA Sports UFC 3 maintained its place in second while FIFA 18 stayed in fourth place. Grand Theft Auto 5 also remained in fifth place followed by Call of Duty: WW2 which dropped to sixth place from third. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey maintained their positions at seventh and eighth respectively while Assassin’s Creed Origins rose from 15th to ninth place.
Perhaps an even bigger surprise is The Evil Within 2 which suddenly came up to tenth place despite not being in the top 40 for the previous week. What are your thoughts on success of Shadow of the Colossus PS4? Let us know in the comments.
