Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall debuted in the UK on Friday but managed to rocket to the top of the UKIE game charts according to Gfk Chart-Track. While there was some doubt about the first person shooter being a system seller, Xbox One sales are reportedly up by 96 percent. The Xbox One Titanfall bundle announced weeks prior to the game’s launch accounted for 70 percent of those sales.
Dark Souls 2 also debuted last week and managed to score second place. The LEGO Movie Videogame is still extremely popular and is hanging on at fourth place followed by Thief at fifth.
FIFA 14 is currently at sixth place and it’s interesting to note that Titanfall has thus far doubled sales of the former on its debut. It’ll be interesting to see how long the FPS can hang on at number 1 though.
Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Battlefield 4 make up the rest of the top ten.
